Bill Maher finally does it

103 posts in this topic

I agree with him on some things, too. But why throw The Golden Calf of Bristol under the bus? We all know you hate religion, Bill. Go after the phonies who act one way Monday through Saturday and another for two hours on Sunday.

I don't see it as him throwing The Golden Calf of Bristol under the bus. It's a joke about a popular subject. It's not even really a personal attack on The Golden Calf of Bristol, imo. It's more of him making fun of recent commentary about The Golden Calf of Bristol winning games thanks to God.

I see it more as him commenting on a subject as opposed to him insulting The Golden Calf of Bristol.

He also had this tweet about The Golden Calf of Bristol:

Got to admit The Golden Calf of Bristol better player than I gave credit for- of course if u think this has anything to do with a 1st c. Palestinian u r an idiot

He has many funny offensive jokes, more so than his The Golden Calf of Bristol ones. Just read this gem about Kim Kardashian:

“Kim Kardashian is upset with Casey Anthony verdict? Ur father defended O.J.! Starting the Kardashian tradition of getting black men off.”

Now that's Maher getting personal.

Why wait? Instead of coming to a message board complaining about this, do what the people who were pissed about Imus did. Go after his sponsors, employer, etc... try to get him fired. Teach him a lesson. I mean if he so obviously crossed the line as you say then there should be plenty of people who agree & you can bring some serious pressure against him right?

That's what Fox is doing.

Would it help if I pointed out that these aren't even close to being the same things?

Freedom of Speech! Maher can make fun of whoever he wants to!

Big thing is it's not a funny joke.

Maher was never all that funny, even before he went political.

Stuff like this serves to get him attention, something he likely couldn't get much of based solely on the quality of his material.

Maher is around because people like the OP react to him.

Damn.

The Golden Calf of Bristol is a grown man, capable of making his own decisions and expressing himself as he sees fit. He's also chosen to live out his life in the spotlight. That makes him fair game.

And The Golden Calf of Bristol is known for three things: Playing football, being very vocal about his religious view, and combining the two.

Now tell me why he can't be ridiculed for these things? How can making a simple commentary about a man, not to mention a celebrity's behavior be considered 'over the line?'

The truth is that it isn't over the line. You just don't like it.

And don't give me any nonsense about religion being off-limits and that attacking someone's religion is similar to racism. It isn't. Religion is a decision. Race isn't.

Saying that Jesus f**ked The Golden Calf of Bristol is over the line. You don't have to like someone's religion. In fact, most devout Christians annoy the heck out of me. But you should respect it more than Maher does.
