Jimmy Fallon was hosting it. Is it just me, or is that the most adorable 40 year old white man in the country? I think he is precious as can be with his cute little self. And he always just seems so happy to be wherever he is. Can I be there too? We can be so happy together.
SNL was boo boo as usual. I don’t even know why I watch. I basically just cross my fingers for Stefon or Anything Amazing Involving Kristen Wiig. I was borderline amused by the Tim Tebow and Jesus skit they tacked on at the end though.
Obviously that didn’t go over so well with the Christians :-/
When “Saturday Night Live” parodied Tim Tebow’s relationship with Jesus last weekend, not everyone was laughing.
Televangelist Pat Robertson called the sketch, in which the Denver Broncos quarterback is met in a locker room by Jason Sudeikis playing Jesus, an example of “anti-Christian bigotry that is just disgusting.”
Speaking on the Christian Broadcast Network on Monday, Robertson wondered aloud about how other religions would have reacted to a similar parody. “If this had been a Muslim country and they had done that and had Mohammed doing that stuff, you would have found bombs being thrown off and bodies on the street,” Robertson said.

Nice job, Pat. Let’s, on one hand, be all butthurt and super-sensitive that somebody is making fun of my faith…and then on the flipside perpetuate the most tired, cliche stereotypes of violent Muslims.
I don’t know a lot of devout Christians. I also don’t know a lot of people who watch SNL. So finding a devout Christian in my friend circle who also saw SNL this weekend was like….trying to find meaning in a Pauly Shore film. But I did find two folks. And they weren’t offended. Because you know why? It’s a sketch comedy show! Who doesn’t get made fun of on that show?
And if anybody needs to be made the butt of a joke, it’s Tim damn Tebow. I am so over him. OVER HIM. Stop talking about Jesus at work. Wouldn’t it be weird if you worked in a call center and after every sale, the guy next to you stopped to have a conversation with you about how much he loves Jesus and how Jesus helped you guys make that sale? If he worked in an office or a school or a store or anywhere else and forever talked about how much he loved Jesus, human resources would but the kibbosh on that with the quickness, because it’s unnecessary. Shouldn’t that be a private relationship anyway? I don’t go around telling complete strangers how much I love Jason Momoa all the time. I mean, I do, but not in that creepy Tebow-way.
I wish some random atheist on the team would just bust out after a Tebow interview and say all the opposite things. ”I would just like to thank the hard work and dedication put forth by the team. We finally banded together there at the end to pull out the win because we really wanted it and we played some great football. And if there is a Jesus, he really doesn’t care about our football score. Or at least he shouldn’t. With all the dying kids and such all over the place. Thank you and goodnight.”
Christians are narcissists. Jesus really doesn’t have time to help you get a 3 point conversion, I promise you. Especially not this time of year when he has all those iPads to get ready to plant in your closet for his birthday.
