~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
This past week Bill Maher in his never ending quest to garner attention by offending every person of faith made the following statement:
"What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he's mad at? I mean, besides Chris Christie."
"Hey, God, you know you're kind of a dick when you're in a movie with Russell Crowe and you're the one with anger issues."
"You know conservatives are always going on about how Americans are losing their values and their morality, well maybe it's because you worship a guy who drowns babies."
"If we were a dog and God owned us, the cops would come and take us away."
It's not the first time Bill Maher has made statements like this. These same tired diatribes are routinely regurgitated against Christians. What strikes me as ironic is Bill Maher doesn't believe in God or the bible yet he believes in the parts of the bible which he believes makes it look bad. You can't have it both ways Bill. Either you believe in all of it or you believe in none of it. And if you don't believe it then what does it bother you so much of those who do believe in it?
As if to up his own ante in hypocrisy Maher accuses God of being a genocidal tyrant. This is the same Bill Maher who in his own words said “I’m pro-choice, I’m for assisted suicide, I’m for regular suicide, I’m for whatever gets the freeway moving – that’s what I’m for... It’s too crowded, the planet is too crowded and we need to promote death.”. Maher supports abortion which has killed 50 million babies since Roe v. Wade. If the six million Jews that were killed in during the holocaust was a genocide, what does that make 50 million babies? And somehow Bill Maher has the audacity to make a moral judgement against a God he doesn't even believe in.
I asked previously why it bothers them so much if people believe in God when they don't believe in it themselves? Why should it matter right? I believe what it comes down to is ideologies. Religion can be defined as a worldview and an ideology which either revolves around a deity or around an individual. Everyone has one, even Bill Maher. Christianity is the religion (or worldview) that runs counter to Bill Maher and his ilk's god-less religion and this is something progressives can't stand. They can't stand opposing ideologies. To them it is intolerable and they must demonize and marginalize Christianity every chance they get.
