Maybe they were all just really high. I know it would be the only way I would go watch Maher.

Maher is only funny if you are such a low information voter that your IQ is in the single digits.

It probably had nothing to do with anyone being touchy. It just isn’t funny.

It depresses me to think that a prime requisite for rising to the top in the liberal world is a lack of talent in anything - let alone one’s chosen profession.

Examples: The Obamadork and the Maherdork.

I wonder, who do people like this pray to in moments of crisis? Who do they seek out when confronted with life or death situations? When all else fails who’s hand do they reach for?

Why do we even give this guy air time? The only ones who care what he feels or says are those who are in sync with his ultra liberal secular bigotry.

There is a saying: God created whiskey so the Irish would not rule the world. I think an addendum would be God created guys like this so we know what it will be like if we go to Hell.

Q. Why does it take longer to build a Maher snowman?
A. Cause you have to hollow out it’s head!

Maher walked into a doctor’s office with two burnt ears. The doctor asked him, “What happened to your ear?” Maher replied, “I was ironing and the phone rang, so instead of picking up the phone, I picked up the iron and put it to my ear.

Still not satisfied, the doctor asked, “Well, what happened to the other ear?”
“The guy called again!”

Q. Why was the Maher in the tree?
A. Because he was raking up the leaves!

Q. What does Maher see when he looks into a box of cheerios?
A. Donut seeds.

Maher decided to go ice fishing. He grabbed all his equipment and put on his fishing outfit.. He walked out onto the icy surface and found a good spot. He took a knife and made a large circle in the ice with it.

“NO! Not there! You will find no fish!” a booming voice announced out of nowhere. So Maher moved a few feet away and made another circle. “NO!! Not there either!!” The voice boomed again. Maher moved a third time, making another circle on the ice. “I said, NO!! There is no fish there!!” The voice boomed again.

“Is that you, God?” Maher called out.

“NO!!” The voice boomed. “It’s the manager of the ice rink!!”

They pray to God. They reach out to God.

Unfortunately, God is loving, He forgives them and hears them.

I wouldn't.

I was reading Isaiah 54 & 55 this morning. Why wouldn’t everyone at least want to find out what God has to offer?

Does this not sound good to him?
Isa 54:14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.

Isa 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.

Isa 55:12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Yep, as your verse says, if he could comprehend Isaiah, he’d convert. His rebellion against the Spirit has made him reprobate. Very sad, we have a lot of work to do.

I don't think so. I think the only prayer God hears from an unbeliever is the one for repentance.

Maybe he could try a variation of the same joke on Iranian TV? The Quran only makes sense when you’re really high? I’m sure the joke would make heads fall off, or at least one..

Thankfully he’s dealing with a tolerant religion. Though I’m sure there’s already at least one complaint about mentioning the bible on federally licensed airwaves over the incident, with the complainant incorrectly declaring that there is a separation of church and state and this is a state licensed station...

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,...”

I had to go to the airport (a 30-40 min. trip) to pick up my son who was flying in from London on Christmas day. I was driving in a terrible storm and couldn't see the road many times on the freeway - the rain was smashing into the windshield with a loud noise blotting out my vision. I had to take the exist to a toll road and knew I had to be in the area where the exit was coming up but I couldn't see it.

I prayed out loud to God to let the rain let up so I could see where to exist. About 40 yards before that exit, the rain let up and I could see to exit onto the toll road. That was an answer to prayer.

funny you never hear of libtards crying for “government!” when they’re looking death in the face. or their current favorite hollyood icon they’re consumed with at the moment. or fidel, or che, or madonna (the whore, not the biblical), not even hillary or algore.

they cry for the person they’ve mocked and railed against their entire lives.

There were two others on crosses, right next to Christ. Both were criminals and full of sin. One remained vial and the other asked for forgiveness.

There is hope for everyone, even if it is the last thing they do. Unfortunately ,we have to be subjected to their ugliness. We have to remember “They don’t know what they do.”

Maher and the other "entertainers" like him should take note that the "AGE OF CIVILITY IS OVER"

...they are supposed to be "smart" people so they ought to be able to recognize when they are entering into really dangerous territory.

Frankly, God so designed the Scriptures so the haters would not understand. So much about faith is counterintuitive - by design. God’s ways are not man’s ways.

There is more in Heaven and earth than dreamt of in Maher’s philosophy . . . to paraphrase Shakespeare.

Maher has a small mind, a shriveled heart and an empty soul. When I hear these folks who are so anti-religious I actually pray for them because the emptiness in their lives must be so profound, and they simply have no clue what is missing in order to provide them peace.

I used to enjoy him on Johnny Carson’s show many many years ago. I thought he was very funny and had a bright future. I don’t know when the bitterness crept in but he is intollerable now. Shame to waste decent talent.

If he was a vial, he wouldn't have any arms to cruficy him.

I guess he urned it.

Yes, it was. I love to hear stories like that.

A few years ago, I had to go to the doctor for some symptoms I was having----they were scary, but thankfully, they turned out to be nothing. However, my appointment was late in the day and I was very apprehensive and nervous about what I might find out. That morning, I asked the Lord to please give me some comfort and peace. Before the words were completely out of my mouth, I was hit by...well, I can only describe it as a wave, a heavy wave of warmth and complete peace. I stayed wrapped up in that feeling all day....it didn't leave me. I'll never forget that. It was the Holy Spirit, I believe.

to Mahlers profane humor.

A dim ray of hope for America perhaps.
