Former Seminarian, Leftist Talker Bill Press to Tim Tebow: 'STFU'

You'd think a former Catholic seminarian would be happy about Christian athletes who are unashamed to publicly praise Jesus Christ. But then again, this is Bill Press we're talking about.

Our friend Brian Maloney at Radio Equalizer notes how the left-wing talker and CNN Crossfire alumnus declared on his December 15 radio program that the Denver Broncos quarterback should shut the [expletive] up:

PRESS: Tim Tebow.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: What is it with you in the fourth quarter?

TEBOW: Well, first and foremost, I just have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and thank my teammates, this is just an unbelievable feeling.

PRESS: Oh yeah, all right all right yeah first of all I just have to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and you know what I want to say, S.T.F.U. [shut the f*** up]

I’m tired of hearing Tim Tebow and all this Jesus talk.

[...]

PRESS: Tim Tebow, everybody wants to make him a hero. I think he’s a disgrace! I think he’s a disgrace! I think he’s an embarrassment!

By the way, Press is the author of a book entitled, "Toxic Talk: How the Radical Right Has Poisoned America's Airwaves."

Hypocrite, first remove the log from your own eye, Bill Press!

What is it with religious liberals and their Tebow Derangement Syndrome?
