Bill Maher has done it again. The host of HBO's "Real Time" went after overtly religious Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow on Christmas Eve after his team's 40-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills. The outspoken atheist tweeted, "Wow, Jesus just... #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere in hell Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler 'Hey, Buffalo's killing them.'" Now, Christians and conservatives are calling for the boycott of HBO. Considering past controversies over Pope Benedict XVI and Michele Bachmann, Maher is likely staying put.
