As Twitchy reported, the comedian came under heavy fire from atheists after tweeting about faith and the Scriptures. He later deleted the tweets and assured his followers that he would limit his discussions to golf and comedy, but last night, he wrote this:
Plenty of fans want him to stick around just for his golf tweets:
@normmacdonald Please don't. I need your golf play by play when I can't watch live. It's better than the Golf Channel!

@normmacdonald I enjoy your golf commentary.

@normmacdonald If you quit Twitter, I go back to knowing nothing about golf.

And this morning, he’s back to his trademark golf commentary:
But he also earned a great deal of respect from old fans and new for defending the faithful, and they hope he decides to stick around — and say what he feels:
@normmacdonald That would be a shame. You are truly a delight.

@normmacdonald If you make that choice, you will be greatly missed.

@normmacdonald please don't!

@normmacdonald ŒV: Maybe take some time away, come back if it appeals? You'd be missed.

@normmacdonald would be a shame, I enjoy your golf coverage, etc. Religion is a personal belief & should not be hated. PC is hateful

Norm, we hope you’ll still speak your mind once in a while. But even if you decide to tweet about nothing but golf, don’t go.
