"Saturday Night Live" Bravely Satirizes Muhammad's Most Ardent Follower!

Kathy Shaidle of "Five Feet of Fury" writes that  'Saturday Night Live’ (SNL) bravely makes fun of Mohammed and his most devout followers.  Then she says, "Naw, just kidding."  SNL was not making fun of Islam or Muhammad.  SNL was, once again, making fun of Christianity and one of its ardent followers, Tim Tebow.

In SNL's skit, Jesus appears in the Denver Broncos' locker room to confront religious quarterback Tim Tebow.  Jesus tells Tim Tebow to "take it down a notch," and not to get in "everyone's face" about his religion. "Jesus" rolls his eyes at key moments to express his disgust for Tebow.  Apparently, Christianity is such a dumb religion that not even Jesus likes it.

Liberals always have a huge chip on their shoulder when it comes to Christianity.   Any Christian religious observance just pisses them off to no end.

Kathy's ironic observation gave me an idea:  why not Photoshop the Saturday Night Live episode as if it were criticizing Islam and depicting Muhammad instead? Voila, herein was born the Photoshop inspired by Kathy Shaidle.  It features "Jesus" reborn as Muhammad, with turban, and Tim Tebow as the ardently religious Muslim, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a leader of Iran.  Ahmadinejad is so ardent in his faith that he wants to "wipe Israel off the map" as a show of devotion, and fervently believes that the "Mahdi," or 12th Imam, will soon emerge from a well to lead the faithful.

Muhammad appears in Ahmadinejad's locker room to tell him to "take it down a notch."  A wise decision, since Muslims are more "in your face" about their religion than anyone else.  Yes, no doubt the SNL Muhammad rolled his eyes at key moments to express his disgust with the faith, made snarky comments while the audience roared with laughter, and oozed with the cool cynicism that liberals seem to love.

Way to go, SNL, you big, brave proponents of cool.

I found it to be a joke on the 24/7 narrative on Tebow.... not on Christianity. But I'm not religious, so maybe that's why it didn't strike a nerve for me.

SNL has regularly parodied Bin Laden, Sadam, and other headliner Muslim terrorists. And in those skits they have definitely parodied Bin Ladens praise of Allah. Have they had a Mohammed character?... probably not... but Allah is mentioned.

A quick google search... I found this. (the Dakota Fanning joke is a definite joke on Islam).

Tebow seems like a Class Act, but he is far from being a good QB. Denver has a Great Def that keeps them in games, and Tebow has a calmness about him that is made for 4th Quarter comebacks. But you will not win consistently by having 1 good quarter a game. And I thought the skit did a brilliant job on that.... Jesus only has time to help you 1 quarter a game.... the rest you are on your own. Tebow was crushed to find out Jesus was doing all the work in his comebacks.

Tebow is getting national attention, and has been for years for wearing his religion on his sleeves, his helmet, and on the eye black. He became the biggest story of the Super Bowl 2 years ago, because of the commercial he was involved in. He is a feel good story... but one that is all over the news; and SNL relishes to lampoon such opportunities.
