Progressive Bill Maher Accuses Obama of not being a Christian
Posted by Steve Markowitz on February 13, 2011
Last night on Real Time, Leftist Bill Maher made two accusations about President Obama. First, Maher got defensive about Obama’s supposed move to the center since the elections. Maher correctly indicated that Obama is a far left Progressive at heart. However, it was Maher’s second claim that was remarkable when he repeatedly said that Obama is not a Christian, but a “secular humanist”, as seen in the video clip below.
Maher’s comment on Obama not being a Christian is remarkable on many fronts:
- The media will say little of Maher’s claim. Imagine the outcry if Sean Hannity or anyone of notoriety on the Right made such a claim.
- It is amazing that to many on the Left, it is ok to claim Obama is not a Christian if he is instead claimed to be an atheist. However, it is unacceptable to claim he is not a Chretien if he is accused of being instead a Muslim. It seems the Left that has an anti-Muslim bias.
- Maher’s implied claim that Obama faked his Christianity for political reasons is the most troubling possibility on two fronts. First, it implies that Obama will do anything in the name of being elected. Second, it begs the question as to why the President chose a racist church to fake his credentials.
Is Obama the worst type of politician who will do and/or say anything in the name of power, or is Bill Maher so fearful of faith that he cannot even consider the possibility that one of his own on the Left has some religion? Or both?
