“Real Time” host Bill Maher questioned the morals and intelligence of devout Americans who live by the Bible, calling them “stupid” and asking why individuals worship a “psychotic mass murderer,” referring to God.
In the “New Rules” segment of his show Friday, Maher went on a rant about the Bible and slammed the “60 percent of adults” in the United States who believe the story of Noah’s Ark is true. Calling those believers “stupid,” the HBO host went on to question how individuals can worship God and obey the rules of Christianity.
“Seriously people, you believed a man, Noah, lived to be 900 years old, that’s what the Bible says. And when he was 500, he decided to have three kids, just like Clint Eastwood. And when he was 600, he and his three 100-year-old sons built a boat unto which in one day, they loaded over 3 million animals, all of which were indigenous to within five miles of the boat,” Maher questioned
The HBO host, an atheist, went on to trash the new blockbuster “Noah,” calling it a “floating piece of giraffe crap.”
“But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral,” he said. “It’s about a psychotic mass murder who gets away with it, and his name is God.”
Maher goes on to describes how God was “angry with himself for screwing up when he made mankind so flawed” and sent the flood to kill all on earth, including babies.
“What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?” Maher asked. “I mean, besides Chris Christie.”
The HBO host criticized conservatives, specifically, for calling for deregulation from the government while obeying what Maher believes are the arbitrary rules outlined in the Bible.
“Isn’t life hard enough without making s**t up out of thin air to f**k with yourself?” he asked. “Don’t we have enough rules to follow and enough a**es we have to kiss in reality?”
