Bill Maher, who just received a star on the Walk of Fame, had great segments on The Tonight Show and Larry King Live this week. He spoke about Koran burning, the (close to) Ground Zero Mosque (and community Center), and religion in general:
The new season of Real Time with Bill Maher starts up Friday. I curse Comcast for not giving me free HBO.
On a side note, Maher was asked why he’s never won an Emmy for his show. His response:
“A panel of like 10 people watches one tape. If half of those people are religious, that probably eliminates me right there. A lot of people wouldn’t vote for such an outspoken atheist, someone who made ‘Religulous.'”
His show deserves an award.
The movie? Meh. I wasn’t that impressed by it.
Still, despite his nutty view on vaccines, I’m glad we have Maher on our side as a spokesperson for atheism.
