Skip to comments.Bill Maher: I Wish Liberals Would Have Same Intolerance For Muslims That They Do For Christians
Posted on 01/31/2016 11:11:50 AM PST by SunkenCiv
On the Friday broadcast of his HBO show Real Time, Bill Maher told liberals see the world the way they want it rather than the way it is when it comes to the threat of Islam and Islamic terror. Maher, a religious critic, told his fellow liberals he wishes they would have the same "intolerance" for Muslim-related terror around the world that they do for Christians and Christian fundamentalists at home.
Maher brought up the decision by the Italians to cover up nude statues during a state visit by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
"This is the horribleness of what's going on in Rome. Oh my God, naked titties and tiny penises!" Maher joked.
"I think people are mixing up two things: tolerance and capitulation," the HBO host observed. "It's one thing to be tolerant of another culture, but this is out culture, you know? Christianity had a problem with titties, in like 1300. We got over it. So we shouldn't change our culture to a more backward culture, should we."

Even a blind pig finds an acorn once in awhile!
It’s not in our hands it’s hatred and love for all the atheists
Even a good portion of liberal Americans see the danger of Islam. It’s really these Leftist elites who are the real problem.
That would be a death wish for Libs.
He's in showbiz. His guests are invariably lib liars, like that jackass on the left end of the amen corner that is his show. He wouldn't give a forum to a leftist demagogue unless he thought the guy were reaching a large enough audience.
As much as I hate that guy he’s right.
Pretty funny that he admits he is intolerant.
The talking heads, yes.
Every now and then he and I can agree on something.
It’s the only issue he is actually right about.
This is the first intelligent thing I’ve heard Bill Maher say in years. Perhaps he’s starting to wake up to what he has been doing to his reputation.
Sorta... bill maher openly mocks Christianity and Christians, he feels that is justified and says molsems should be treated the same.
I disagree with his mockery of Christianity so he is only half right in my humble opinion.
The science is settled on islam...it is a death cult and nothing more.
I can’t believe so many people are missing the point. The left is using Muslims to get people riled up and “fight the Muslins.” But the real target is Christians. All these anti-Muslim efforts and restrictions will be used against Christians. And while conservatives are busy fighting Muslims, the real enemy, the left, is making hay.
Like I said “as much as I hate that guy” :-)
I think the liberal elites live in unreality. They believe the world in their minds over what they see.
As with a stopped clock, old low T Maher gets it right on occasion.
Bill, that’s because to most liberals, no thanks to you in part, have decided that Christianity is the biggest enemy. So look in the mirror, pal.
I sense a fear coming over Maher. Too late for him to be enlightened, he played his part in creating the nightmare.
