Bill Maher took a few shots at the religious right and Focus on the Family during his New Rules segment on Real Time this Friday evening and had this question for them: “If you’re doing God’s work and God is perfect, how come you’re always wrong? Is the problem that you can't follow instructions, or is Jesus just dicking you around?"

Bill Maher took a few shots at the religious right and Focus on the Family during his New Rules segment on Real Time this Friday evening and had this question for them: “If you’re doing God’s work and God is perfect, how come you’re always wrong? Is the problem that you can't follow instructions, or is Jesus just dicking you around?"

Maher went through a list of predictions that they got wrong if heaven forbid "we elected that evil Count Chocula as our President." And kudos to Maher for calling that group exactly what they are, which is nothing more than "an anti-gay lobbying group disguised as a church, basically the God-hates-fags guys crossed with Bain Capital."

Maher asked if we might ever expect to get an apology out of the group for having gotten so many of their predictions wrong, and as he noted, we haven't gotten one from them yet, or a host of others who have also been wrong with their predictions of doom and gloom if the Democrats were elected. He wrapped things up by telling his viewers, "as Joe Biden says, just use your common sense." Bill forgot that other rule when it comes to there being no punishment for Republicans constantly being wrong -- IOKIYAR.
