Progressive TV host Bill Maher recently pointed out that American liberals are more tolerant of Islam than they are of Christianity and that it’s hypocritical and stupid of them to do so.
You know that old saying about a broken clock being right twice a day?
Here you go, via Real Clear Politics:
Bill Maher: I Wish Liberals Would Have Same Intolerance For Muslims That They Do For Christians
BILL MAHER: I mentioned this in the monologue, the covering up of the statues in Rome.

This is the horribleness of what’s going on in Rome. Oh my God, naked titties and tiny penises! This is what they did.
I think people are mixing up two things: tolerance and capitulation.
It’s one thing to be tolerant of another culture, but this is out culture, you know? Christianity had a problem with titties, in like 1300. We got over it. So we shouldn’t change our culture to a more backward culture, should we?…
THOM HARTMANN, LIBERAL RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Ask John Ashcroft. This is not a Muslim problem, it is a fundamentalist problem. John Ashcroft is a fundamentalist Christian.
MAHER: You know what? Except when it happened in this country, the liberals laughed at him. And they opposed him. I wish they would have the same enthusiasm for intolerance elsewhere in the world as they do for Christians here at home who really aren’t a problem because they don’t really get their way. It’s laughable.
Here’s the video, strong language warning:
Maher makes an excellent point.
Christians aren’t burning people alive in cages for disagreeing with them.
