Bill Maher, Still Saying Some Really Offensive Stuff

Posted by Teresa at 9:15 PM
All I can say is this disgusting. It would be really noble if a prominent
atheist would send a message to him this type of hateful language is
inappropriate. Yes, Christian groups should be able to speak out about
this but it would be so much more powerful if someone in his own
community would call him out. Here it is from the article:
(CNSNews.com) - Comments by HBO's Bill Maher insulting
the Pope and calling Catholicism a "cult" that promotes "organized
pedophilia" have stirred resentment among many American
Catholics upset he would say this the week before Pope Benedict
XVI visits the United States.

The comments were made on HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher"
on Friday, April 11. Maher went into a long monologue on his
program comparing the Catholic church to a polygamous cult --
the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints --
which was raided on April 3 and whose founder, Warren Jeffs,
was convicted last year for being an accessory to the rape of a
teenage girl.

Bill Maher compared the Texas scandal and its latest alleged
abuse with the sexual abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic
Church in the United States in 2002.

"I'd like to tip off law enforcement to an even larger child-abusing
religious cult," Maher told his audience. "Its leader also has a
compound, and this guy not only operates outside the bounds of
the law, but he used to be a Nazi and he wears funny hats. That's
right, the Pope is coming to America this week and, ladies, he's single."
