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.
