ESPN removes anchor for language, possibly religious slurs

ESPN anchor Dana Jacobson has been suspended for a week because of comments the anchor made at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City. Some of the comments have a religous aspect.

News sources report that the anchor was criticizing Notre Dame, with references to "Touchdown Jesus," an unflattering name given to a mural in the school's stadium as well as saying "F@#$ Jesus" during the speech, which has drawn ire from Christian groups.
