Friday night on Real Time with Bill Maher, the host took on the misguided efforts of Right-Wing republicans asserting that Jesus would be in favor of letting people go hungry, stiffing waiters, and just generally being un-Christ like assholes.
“New rule: It’s okay if you don’t want to feed the hungry or heal the sick or house the homeless. Just don’t say you’re doing it for their own good.”
“Don’t say you’d like to help but your hands are tied, because if you did, it would cause a culture of dependency or go against the Bible or — worst of all — rob them of their freedom to be sick and hungry.”
“Just admit you’re selfish,” he told wingers. “And based upon how little your beliefs mirror the actual teachings of Jesus, you might as well claim to worship Despicable Me.”
