Bill Maher 'makes Imus look like a saint'(Catholic Mass as Homosexual Acts)
worldnetdaily.com ^ | May 25, 2007 | staff

Posted on 05/25/2007 9:17:39 PM PDT by kellynla

If Don Imus could be fired for offensive racial remarks, Bill Maher certainly deserves discipline from his employer for bashing Christians, including his description of a Catholic Mass as graphic homosexual acts, charge media watchers.

Explicit sexual mockery of Scripture and Catholic theology on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" should be addressed by parent company Time-Warner, say Brent Bozell III, president of the Media Research Center, and Robert Knight, director of the MRC's Culture and Media Institute.

Maher's comments began with a verbal assault on Jerry Falwell three days after the Baptist minister's death May 15 then "escalated into a vicious attack on Christianity in general and Roman Catholicism in particular," MRC says.

(Story continues below)

Maher said, "'We weren't having sex, officer, I was performing a very private Mass, here in my car. I was letting my rod and staff comfort him. Take this and eat of it, for this is my roommate Barry. … And for all those who believe there is a special place for you in Kevin."

Bozell said Time-Warner "needs to hold Maher accountable for his despicable remarks."

"We're asking, 'Are you okay with what he said? If not, what are you going to do about it?'" he said.

Bozell noted his friend Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, has documented a pattern, calling Maher "a serial anti-Catholic bigot."

Knight acknowledged Maher is "entitled to his vile views, but he's not entitled to an endless ride on the airwaves courtesy of Time-Warner."

"If Don Imus's offensive racial joke was too much for the public to bear, certainly Maher's sickening description of the Mass and Communion as graphic homosexual sex acts is beyond the pale," Knight said.

As WND reported, Maher stirred controversy two years ago when he said Christians suffer from a neurological disorder that "stops people from thinking."

Appearing as a guest on MSNBC's "Scarborough Country," Maher told host Joe Scarborough:

"We are a nation that is unenlightened because of religion. I do believe that. I think that religion stops people from thinking. I think it justifies crazies. I think flying planes into a building was a faith-based initiative. I think religion is a neurological disorder. If you look at it logically, it's something that was drilled into your head when you were a small child. It certainly was drilled into mine at that age. And you really can't be responsible when you are a kid for what adults put into your head."

As others have said in the past, if you live life like there is no God, you had better be right.

I have to remind myself that regardless of how reprehensible the comments are, Jesus still thinks enough of Mr. Maher to have given his life for him.

Can you even imagine a TV show host from the "Right" side of the political spectrum talking about the "Left" in a similar manner?

I honestly don't believe such a show would be "allowed" on TV (including cable).

Maher isn’t scary, what’s scary is the hundreds of fresh zombies who fill his studio every week and applaud his every insult to America and Christianity.

Oh yeah, and Bill, if you call yourself a libertarian, you can’t also admit you’re a socialist and that you want hate crime laws passed alongside affirmative action. Oh yeah, and he supports Bush’s wiretapping. (At least he says he does.) How can we trust someone who misdiagnosed his own politics by 180 degrees?

Bill Maher is one of the most hate-filled people on TV. He was giddy as he was celebrating the death of Jerry Falwell, and his dipshit audience hooted their approval. Does he EVER get challenged by a conservative on his show? It’s just a liberal circle jerk. It seems like he would have a stroke if just one of his “guests” didn’t suck up to him and his retard audience.

Yes, and we need to continue to pray for his conversion. I can see no greater defeat for Satan, the real author of Mr. Maher's comments, then to have one of his famous slaves publicly exchange bondage for freedom in Jesus. When I read comments like Mr. Maher's, I keep hearing the word and those who have trespassed against us.

Maher makes fun of the Catholic church at the same time that he markets his own fantasies and half-truths as ex cathedra statements.

Maher almost seems jealous of bishops.

maher won’t come out of the closet. he’s a dyed-in-the-wool atheist and will not admit it. neither will he admit that he has an agenda and that agenda is socialism with a totalitarian bent, that is, a marxist.

Sounds more like a backhanded slap at Christians. As you (and he) know, "faith-based initiative" is a term used by Christians, not Muslims. He is removing the blame from Islam and placing it on religion in general.

We will be dropping HBO after the last Sopranos....
Maher is a closet Homo..he keeps talking about act such as this...perhaps one day we will read about him at a highway rest stop....
Maher is a small man with a large forum...he is a bigot and a loud mouth.He is not happy until he offends. There must be a name for his disorder somewhere.
If everyone ignores him, maybe he will go back to whatever latrine he came from.

The difference between Imus and Maher is that Imus is more or less fair and balanced. He trash talks and insults everyone, whereas Maher only insults politically correct targets.

Another difference is that Imus once attacked bill & hillary clinton at the National Press Club, which Maher would never do. I think hillary most likely ordered his firing, because she needed to eliminate one of the few people on the airwaves willing to make fun of her. Fox News certainly won’t do it while Murdoch is in charge.

That said, we should continue to keep the pressure on Maher’s bosses. This was beyond disgusting.

Maher is antiChristian. He hates us. There is no tolerance in his speech.

If he wants to be an atheist, fine. He can worship his “no god” god. But he feels he is a “cut above” those who follow Christ.

His smugness is acceptable too. But then he chooses to denigrate those who worship Jesus. He doesn’t ridicule the Jews or Muslims or Hindus or Buddhists. Only the Christians. Some atheist. He is selective in his scorn.
