Bill Maher

Catholics Demand Boycott

One Priest Joke Too Many

breaking news

1125_bill-maher_catholic_league_TMZ The leading Catholic rights group in America wants to organize their own hate campaign -- because they hate the anti-religious hatred they claim Bill Maher spews on his show ... and now it's calling for network execs to kill Bill's show for good. 

The Catholic League -- which has had issues with Maher for years -- now say "Real Time with Bill Maher" finally crossed the line after a recent guest went nuts bashing Catholicism.

The guest -- author Dan Savage -- was ragging against a bishop who claimed kids adopted by gay parents have a higher chance of suicide.  Savage's retort: "He's confusing children of gay parents with children who are raped by Catholic priests." Dan referred to them as "kiddie-f***ing Catholic priests."

Savage's remarks incensed the org ... so they sent a list of every "anti-Catholic" statement ever mentioned on the show -- going as far back as '98 -- asking every bishop to write Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, urging him to give the show the ax.

The 'Catholic League' is asking you write to Time Warner. I suggest you do the same and tell them Maher is more trustworthy than your average priest or bishop.

Everyone else is urged to e-mail Keith Cocozza, VP, Corporate Communications: keith.cocozza@timewarner.com

First-off, Maher is a merely just another self-aggrandizing, mean-spirited, and mediocre "comedian". In terms of sheer wit? Pure Shock and Schlock, unfit to carry Dennis Miller's mic.

Meanwhile Savage, is not even readable.
Maybe when he can finally addresses
the fact that most child-predators are Homosexuals,
he can be taken half-seriously.

While I can never, ever, come to terms with Catholic
Doctrine and "Leadership", Truth shall prevail:
The vast majority of Catholic-Christian Clergy
are dedicated and devoted individuals. To publicly
mock them, based upon the actions of a very small-percentage, is deplorable.

It's easy being an atheist when youre half Jew and half Catholic since no matter what you do, you could never really belong to either group.

@Paula: Theologically speaking, you could not be more incorrect. As I've taught for YEARS: Judaism is Christianity's "Grand-father". Is an heir EXACTLY like
the ancestor?

NOW, The Most Holy and Victorious Christ King
YESHUA reigns!

Wow ...    

The church is angry someone had the guts to tell the truth. He made a valid point, why in the world is the church up in arms over gays, yet send pedo priests along to the next church to strike again????

Bill is Anti-Religion. He doesn't discriminate against any particular faith. I think that is fair that he treats them all the same. Don't get upset if he uses the truth and logic.
