Bill Maher Takes A Shot At Pro-Torture So-Called Christians In His New Rules Segment

Bill Maher took a shot at those so-called Christian conservatives who laud torture in his "New Rules" segment on Real Time: MAHER: And finally New Rule, if you're a Christian who supports killing your enemies and torture, you have to come up with a new name for yourself.

Bill Maher took a shot at those so-called Christian conservatives who laud torture in his "New Rules" segment on Real Time:

MAHER: And finally New Rule, if you're a Christian who supports killing your enemies and torture, you have to come up with a new name for yourself.

Maher also took a shot at those who say they're following the teachings of Christ but lauded the killing of Osama bin Laden last week and explained why he didn't feel bound to that same set of morals, and why he felt those that claim to be following the teachings of Jesus are hypocrites if they were cheering bin Laden's death.

I think Maher makes some great points here and on a regular basis about what has become of the Christian right these days where there are way too many of them lauding violence and with no regard for the poor and the downtrodden and that seem to love the Old Testament while ignoring pretty much all of the New Testament and the message of nonviolence and social justice.

If anyone ever expects him to make those points gently when it comes to any religion, well, you're better off just not watching his show, because that ain't gonna' happen just as it didn't here.
