Bill Maher

Disclaimer: I'm about to rant.
So you all know I'm addicted to The View. Well, today Bill Maher was on promoting his new movie, Religulous. He more or less, no, not more or less, he blatantly called any one who has faith of any sort, a moron. He said he can't understand why any politician or government official can let their faith blindly guide them. On the show, he insulted Sherri (the openly Christian) and Elisabeth (the outspoken conservative), only because they don't share his ideals (Thank the Lord).
I'm a Christian and I consider myself somewhat intelligent. I mean, I'm not a genius, but I'm no moron either. My faith is what guides me in most of what I do (my goal is to make it guide me in ALL that I do - still working on that one). Watching Bill Maher sit on that sofa making cracks at people of faith (any faith, not just Christians), and watching two of the four co-hosts giggle at his remarks made me incredibly sad and disappointed at what our country has come to.
To me, Maher has always come across as an unsettled, angry, annoyed person. Maybe he needs a little faith himself. Pray for Bill Maher, God is the God of miracles, after all.

I'm still trying to figure out why people who claim to be open-minded get so bent out of shape when someone has beliefs different than theirs.

BTW, my blog has moved. It's now at:
