(Newser) – One person most definitely not amused by last weekend's Tim Tebow skit on Saturday Night Live was Pat Robertson, reports the LA Times. The sketch, in which Jesus visits Tebow in the locker room and tells him he's overdoing the religious stuff, is evidence of the "anti-Christian bigotry in this country that's just disgusting," complained Robertson on the Christian Broadcast Network.

“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 and bodies on the street,” he says. So far, Tebow himself has not commented on the sketch. Mediaite has video of Robertson's rant here. Or click here to see the skit for yourself. (Read more Pat Robertson stories.)
