Bigoted crank Don Imus took media adulation of Tim Tebow to a new level Monday morning on his Fox Business Network program when he alleged those critical of the Denver quarterback were "hating on Jesus."

It was just one of several enlightened Tebow-related statements from the host fired from MSNBC in 2007 for insensitive remarks about the Rutgers women's basketball team. More Imus "wit" included:

Of course, we need to get Tim Tebow to do what Charles Barkley did and that is, cheat on his wife and spit on fans, so, that's what we need to get Tim Tebow to do.

Of course, Imus is an expert on wives:

Deirdre came in and said the Broncos are going to win and i said, no, they're not going to win this game and go back out in the kitchen and fix the I-Man a tasty snack.

Master of marital relations Don Imus, everyone!
