Pat Robertson to SNL: Leave Tim Tebow Alone!
Saturday Night Live
Pat Robertson's latest target? Saturday Night Live.
The televangelist railed against a skit mocking Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow, an open and devout Christian, calling it "anti-Christian bigotry." In the sketch, Jason Sudeikis appeared as Jesus and told Tebow to concentrate on his game and ease up on the praise.

"If this had been a Muslim country and they had done that, and had Muhammad doing that stuff, you would have found bombs being thrown off!" Robertson said on the Christian Broadcasting Network.
"Tebow is an example, and I think he is a wonderful human being," Robertson said. "We need more religious faith in our society. We're losing our moral compass in our nation and this man has been placed in a unique position and I applaud him. God bless him."
