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.

The only really funny thing about the whole situation is the "boycott" backlash.

As if Maher wouldn't LOVE that.

Almost endless comedic material, hidden camera, man on the street interviews...
I'm salivating if I'm him.

lol he made an entire documentary bashing religion, but omg making fun of The Golden Calf of Bristol is too much.

Maher's pretty hit or miss with me. Some of his jokes are good but some, like this one, are horrible.

So we basically agree. I'm not saying he should be thrown in jail. I'm saying it went too far. I'm not in league with Fox on this one. The boycott is a stupid idea. Just like it was for Don Imus.

That's what The Golden Calf of Bristol gets for shoving his business in everyone else's face.
