False. Maher is at the height of his career in the entertainment business. You may not like his comments about religion and politics but at least he isn't ranting about the end times and the Anti-Christ living among us like Glenn Beck and his cohort John Hagee do. Maher hasn't made irresponsible comments or created silly conspiracy theories like Beck's crazy Boston Marathon conspiracy last April that caused an innocent bomb victim to receive thousands of death threats. BTW, where's Glenn's apology to that kid? He still hasn't made that one right.
That's not saying much. If Charles Manson had social media, a left wing hack channel like HBO, twitter, facebook etc I'm certain he could have garnered the same number of followers the moronic maher garners. Maher makes the comments he makes more for self promotion because he knows there are a million or so that watch his idiocy. He's comes off an anti-semitic, American hating left wing hack, more widely known as a progressive.
Inlightofthings, your comments have no merit and not a toe in reality either. I can see comparing Glenn Beck to Charles Manson, since their emotional rants filled with falsehoods are good at controlling the minds of the gullible (and there's mountains of evidence to support that statement.) But Maher just tells the truth and that's what gets some of you so angry. It 's frustrating when someone says "The Emperor has no clothes" and you have so much faith in his invisible outfit. I can understand that. I used to be one of you until I realized the truth.
Good humor John. Maher doesn't get me angry, not in the least. I pay no attention to him as I wouldn't feel comfortable being lumped in with his viewers. If you "used" to be one of us but found truth, I pray for your soul. You've lost your way, much like squeaky fromm or whatever. My analogy to manson is reinforced once a gain. All the best.
Maher is a sad little man seeking attention with negative words Hard to pray for such a soul less person but as a Christian I must try
Concur. A simple stretch for more ratings from a simple minded fool. Just another attack by the Communist Left. When facts don't fit their agenda; they attack and accuse.
Inlightofthings "used to" or "use to" are both acceptable forms of the expression. The rest of your comment isn't worthy of response.
JohnDe: Why all the anger?
Inlightofthin, that's a good question. I think you and many of the others here are offended and angry with Bill Maher and his most recent comments because 1: you despise his politics and 2: your thinking is so clouded by years of family pressure and indoctrination into accepting the Christian, LDS (whatever the case may be) narrative as fact that when Maher destroys that narrative with commons sense and humor it causes the anger. Add in his lack of respect for the religious narrative and that results in all the hell wishers here too. There you go.
Nathanial...context matters. "Maher hasn't made any irresponsible comments"..like Beck's conspiracy theory and false accusations that nearly got an innocent college student killed. Context.
Prove It. Give us links, not opinions. Not to mention, you blithering idiot, that Glenn Beck is not nearly as vulgar as your prophet Bill Maher.
Does Bill do the same thing that Obama does - go out and hand pick and pay people to be in the audience.
@dmg....actually Noah took two of every FLESH. that means a pair of all the races were on the arc also. im just sayin
JohnDe: Let me rephrase that...why are you so angry?
I hate Maher because he is a flaming hypocrite that doesn't hold Obama to the same standards that he held Bush. Maher, as well as the majority of the left, has given Obama a free pass on drones, the NSA, domestic spy programs, renewing the patriot act, blowing up innocent women and children with drones, doubling the size of the war in Afghanistan, gutting the freedom of the press, waging a war on whistle blowers, creating "no free speech zones"........shall I continue?
Why does Maher always get this much attention?!! If the media would stop covering his ridiculous utterings that serve only to generate coverage which then results in more viewership & ratings for his show, he wouldn't have an audience or a show and he would go away. Hate speech...I thought that was a prosecutable offense these days...or does it only apply to Christians? And yes, btw, why does he direct his remarks only to those who believe in the Bible...why not insult those in the Muslim religion? Yes...why indeed...we all know the answer to that one.
What's worse Bill Maher calling a fictional character a mass murderer or Glenn Beck falsely accusing the Jewish George Soros of helping the Nazis....
You see one is a comedian making a funny joke to entertain people, the other is a dangerous inflammatory statement made to help the "news man" politically.
What's worse is George Soros using his wealth and influence to turn America into Stalinist Russia.
Rant, look it up yourself and stop being such a gullibilly. Everyone knows Beck was wrong and even Beck knows by now.
if there is no God, how can he be a mass murderer?

How embarrassing for the people of the US. Obamas best shot is two lesbians at the Olympics? The world is laughing at his incompetence.
