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.

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."
More anti-Catholic bigotry...this time from HBO’s Bill Maher
Bill Maher was conceived in a homosexual act.
I have watched Maher a few times lately, he is the scum at the bottom of the barrell of leftist media.
Bill Maher is a nappy-headed ho. :)
He is also the most pompous, arrogant, demented, carnal minded, self-righteous, gutter-mouthed “pundit” still on TV.
“When Bill Maher is nothing but dust and no one remembers his name the Catholic Church will still be there.”
Maher’s not nearly as “brave” when it comes to trashing islam. He knows Christians won’t kill him for attacking their faith.
Thank God for Bill Donohue.
“He knows Christians wont kill him for attacking their faith.”
There are some things worse than dying. LOL
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.
Try spewing anti-muslim perverted rants on the air in another country other than the USA Bill Maher...you bash the very ones (christians) who afford you protections and freedoms. You will EAT your own words someday... I hope for your sake it’s sooner than later BM.
Maher’s not nearly as “brave” when it comes to trashing islam.”
Maher said “Flying planes into buildings is a faith based initiative.” If that is not trashing Islam, what is? He better watch his back.
I honestly don't believe such a show would be "allowed" on TV (including cable).
He said the terrorists were “brave”, and the US military was “cowardly”.
I’d love to see this piece of $hit make a guest appearance on a very special ep of the Sopranos — and get whacked.
