Bill Maher: The Pope's an Atheist and The Vatican Will Likely Poison Him
The National Catholic Register ^ | 6/2/13 | Matthew Archbold

Posted on 06/03/2013 8:59:33 AM PDT by marshmallow

When children are desperate for attention they scream and cry, talk show hosts in need of attention make fun of Catholics. Actually "make fun" isn't the proper term. They hurl hate at Catholics with a smile on their face so they can accuse anyone who's offended of being humorless.

Television host Bill Maher has long lost the power to shock because he's so consistently misinformed and hateful about religious people. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't take note of what is said by him and others like him. Sometimes when I write about anti-Catholic screeds from the media some see it as akin to reporting that the sun came up that morning. My thinking, however, is that someone might just take to the Google and look up what Maher said and I just want to make sure there's something out there informing them he's dead wrong.

Remember the time that the media reported that The Vatican said there was no Hell? Yeah, I still hear about that one in the comboxes. Remember when Pope Benedict XVI supposedly endorsed condom usage? I know some well intentioned people who actually believed that one. We owe it to everyone to report the truth, even in the face of misinformed hatred, intentional or otherwise.

In this case, Bill Maher, the atheist host of HBO's "Real Time," show announced that he believed that Pope Francis is an atheist and because of that, it's likely that the Vatican will attempt to kill the Pope first chance they get.

The Daily Caller reported that Maher was surprised that Pope Francis said Jesus died for all, even atheists. What people choose to do with His love is up to them. This, of course, is not a new teaching. In fact, it's not surprising in the least to anyone......

Bill Maher is a moron and intelligent thought gives him a migraine, that is why he always plays it safe and says really, really stupid things.

I guess the answer is not obvious to Maher. We'll stick to easier questions for him, like, "does a bear . . ."

If that was the case, why did they vote for him?

I love a good tin foil theory, but they need to be internally consistent.

Mahler is of course a puke. But this pope thinks that government should have more control of the economy.
Government is not God and the pope should not use his position to force people to give more of their wealth, their liberty to the government.

Bill Maher is a douchebag and will likely get the clap from some tramp.

If Michael Douglas got cancer from oral sex

No Michael Douglas got HPV from performing oral sex on a woman who had HPV...

or from kissing a woman who had oral HPV

or from smoking or drinking too much

or gay stuff though he doesn't strike me that way

it's kinda hard to say exactly...I think Michael probably likes the reputation of getting it from going down on women more than from smoking

Given that a 25-50% of mature women have HPV and 10% of men carry it orally too I'd wage if HPV alone was the culprit we'd sure see more than just a few thousand cases of this type cancer per year...a cancer easily caused as I said by tobacco use or heavy drinking alone...likely chronic pot too

all that said...I think HPV vaccine is a good idea for boys...my oldest has gotten it already

What have you got against Gustav?

I'll admit I'm not a big fan of his symphonies, but his "Des Knaben Wunderhorn" makes up for everything:

Revelge - with Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau - you will never hear it better sung.

. . . yeah, I'm just giving you a hard time. :-)

Maher has been watching too much of The Borgias from ShowTime.

Maher really didn’t know that Jesus died for all? I do agree with Maher that Obama is an atheist. I think he took up liberal black Christianity for political purposes. I wish someone would ask Maher:”If you’re a random accident, why should anyone care about your opinion and why is your opinion then more important than anyone else’s?”

Maher is going to have a bad hair day when he wakes up before the Judgement Seat to discover that God is not mocked.
