Bill Maher Rages At Christian Hypocrites: 'Just Admit You're Selfish!'

The section about selfish xians is at the end of the routine, but the entire sketch is good. A part of the sketch follows:

Bill Maher closed Friday's episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher" by going off on one of his favorite subjects: Christians who refuse to help others, despite their religion's call to do so.

"It's okay if you don't want to feed the hungry, heal the sick or house the homeless. Just don't say you're doing it for their own good," Maher said.

He continued: "Don't say you'd like to help people, 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 added.

He cited new laws in Missouri cutting $96 million in food stamps, claiming that it was the latest so-called Bible belt state failing to take care of those in need.

Waiters in particular are often victims of Christians withholding tips in order to push their religion, Maher said. A fake $10 bill with a Bible verse was held up as especially loathsome, as was the story of a gay waiter who was refused a tip because of his sexuality.

"Not tipping a gay waiter will not make him want to put his penis in a woman. It will make him want to put his penis in your pasta primavera," Maher quipped.
