Bill Maher Mocks Christianity and Catholics Again

Bill Maher, host of the talk show "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO, recently showed the hatred Maher and the other Hollywood types have for Christianity and Christians.

Just three days after Rev. Jerry Falwell's death, Maher began his weekly HBO program with a verbal assault on Rev. Falwell and then escalated into a vicious attack on Christianity in general and Catholics in particular.

Maher: "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."

Time-Warner, owner of HBO, issued no apology for the on-air explicit homosexual mockery of Scripture and Catholic theology. Neither did the mainstream media bring it to the public’s attention as they did with Don Imus. For the mainstream media, Christians are the only religious group in America against whom such bigotry is allowed.

Christians, especially Catholic Christians are specifically targeted with hateful bigotry.

I think someone needs to deal with remarks like this, he wouldn't make remarks like this about anyone else and get away with it.

I feel that if he made remarks about a lot of other religions they would create a fuss, why are people like him allowed to take cheap shots at Catholicism all of the time and get away with it?

Do you ever hear anyone insulting other faiths to this extent, if so, please post.

Well I did hear the Rosie comment about Christianty being worse than Islam. I say let people say what they like and we can turn them off. At least I don't have to guess who is thinking what.

I don't think we should turn them off, I think that they should be confronted otherwise they'll keep doing it because they'll think that we're afraid to speak up.

I just watched Bill Mauer's commentary comparing the Pope and the Texas Latter Day Saints sect and I find it difficult to argue with his logic. All of you who are so outraged by his remarks consider this . . . two of my stepsons were molested by a priest. This same priest was transfered 4x while family after family accused him of unseemly conduct with boys and the bishop fired everyone who raised questions about the priest's conduct. No one will file charges because the DA in the city where these things happened is a Catholic and has never filed charges against any priest. The Catholic church has lost its moral authority and is every bit as corrupt as it was in the time of Martin Luther. Until outraged Catholics such as yourselves refuse to give more money until they come clean on the priest scandal, it will continue. Advocacy organizations say this church has learned NOTHING from the scandal except how to be more devious legally. This is the church you defend so vociferously. When priest molestation happens, families are torn apart. Believe me, I was part of such a family.

I feel badly for what your family has had to endure. Wrong is wrong.
I appreciated your view point and agree that this needs to be addresed and has been swept under the carpet. I am not Catholic, but have many friends, from many different religions. We seem to find middle ground of treating each other kindly. They are also disurbed, as you are, with the behavior of some in our churches. We forget that it is there personal conduct and most agree that abuse is not acceptable. The allegations in Texas are also disturbing. Mr. Mauer is a master of word. With anything though, there is responsiblity. He often lacks good judgement. This is a case in point. Perhaps if more of us, myself included, applied the golden rule more often, our communities would reflect our works and how we speak and behave.
