Yes, other than his insisting every muslim wants you dead based on a poll done in Egypt!, Maher (and it nearly kills me to say this about him) is right about Islam not being like Christianity. Christians do NOT believe anybody should be beheaded, Christians don’t kill if you leave the faith, Christians don’t stone adulterers…. and there’s more in the video.
Here are a couple of things about this video:
-I haven’t always agreed with Charlie Rose but I never found him this obtuse or PC. This is stunningly, breathtakingly ignorant on his part. And I’ve seen him try to suck up to someone but rarely THIS big.
-I have rarely heard Maher quote George Bush (who he detests) as he did when he said “Soft bigotry of low expectations.” THAT was stunning.
Not much to talk about on this blog, I suppose, but I do hope you watch the video; You’ll be relieved that someone like MAHER actually gets it about radical islam.
Wouldn’t you like to have all TV channels carry this? What can be done with it? Nobody seems love Maher more than Maher loves Maher, but MAYBE he could do some good that DOESN’T pay him well? Ya think?
Or do we have in this video yet another thing we should all hear but dies after the show?
P.S…just noticed that this story is very near the top on Yahoo’s headline page (which you can slam but it is one of the biggest home pages, sadly), which is surprising, to say the least.
