Bill Maher Under Catholic Fire

Catholics are waging war against Bill Maher, who recently took some time to not mourn Evangelical Reverend Jerry Falwell.

During his riotous oration on his HBO show, Real Time with Bill Maher, the 51-year old comedian suggested that gays may gain more rights if we just started a rear-ended religion and offered some clever excuses for gay sex:

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.

Hilarious, right? Not according to conservative media watchdog group, Media Research Center.

Director of MRC’s Culture and Media Institute, Robert Knight derided Maher’s allegedly anti-Catholic send-up:

If Don Imus’s offensive racial joke was too much for the public to bear, certainly Maher’s sickening description of the Mass and Communion as graphic homosexual sex acts is beyond the pale.

Some people have no sense of humor, huh? Nor, it seems, can they differentiate between calling people “nappy headed hoes” and making a political statement about the uncivil state of queer civil rights.
