Shock: Bill Maher keeps it tasteless on pope’s resignation

It was inevitable that Bill Maher would weigh in on Pope Benedict XVI’s unexpected resignation, but if he’s going to try to get in a tasteless joke or two, he’s going to have to get up earlier. The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza did the Sarah Palin line over 12 hours ago, and it wasn’t funny then either.

    Sandusky and Bill Maher look like twins. Call the Maury show, think we found Maher’s daddy.

    Still waiting for that laugh from Bill Maher since Politically Incorrect was cancelled…

    Pope Benedict is an evil man–he has actively covered up homosexual abuse and more besides! The doctrines of the Catholic church are anti-Christ!

    • HARP2

      With most of it taking place in the White House.

      • mheathman

        so homosexuality with minors is ok as long as the church condones it? You are sick.

        • Christy000

          Where did anybody apply that?

        • Christy000

          or *imply*

  • HARP2

    You seem to be knowledgeable on the the subject. Are you Catholic by the way ?

  • Matthew Koch

    It is heartwarming to see how Protestants are enjoying this. Using the violation of children as an excuse to slam the Catholic Church. As if their own denominations are any different. As if you wouldnt find the same behavior and cover up history among schoolteachers or the Boy Scouts.

    If you keep acting like this is just a catholic problem you’ll be blinded to the same crimes being committed in your own faiths. The only things that leftists and right wing a-holes can agree on is that Catholics and Mormons suck. Venting your own hatred doesn’t fix things. It’s a human problem not just a catholic problem.

  • Matthew Koch

    The actions of many church officials are evil. But these kinds of remarks just prove that the people who make them don’t give s-/: about raped kids. They just see these poor victims as a means to an end.

  • Matthew Koch

    Besides bill maher is probably just angry that altar boys get it more often than he does (see some Catholics can display criticism of the church in this situation).

    There’s a big difference between joking and being hateful. He is most assuredly the latter.

    • TocksNedlog

      Maher gets it every time he pays for it.

  • Maxx

    Did he pen that thought before or after the black hooker arrived?

    • Heather_A

      As a black woman, I kinda wish Bill Maher would find another pool to pick from. <_<


  • cremebrulee

    You are disgusting. Shame on you.

  • Love of Country

    The Left fills every prison, welfare line and rehab center in the country to capacity and yet somehow all they manage to do is systematically point fingers at all the folks who made this country great all day long ….. unbelievable!

  • descolada9

    Bill Maher, still desperate for any attention he can get.

    Says the guy who sleeps with teenagers…

  • Elena0412

    If men can’t have an opinion on abortion, why do non-Catholics care who heads the Catholic Church?

  • Gallatin

    bill Maher, one of the reasons I won’t pay for hbo nor watch for free when DISH sometimes pushes the trash for free.

  • Drinky McGee

    I think aiding and abetting the rape of children is a bit more tasteless than anything Bill Maher will ever say.

    • Randi Starr

      I think accusations without evidence of his guilt is typical of stupidity and social decline.

      • Drinky McGee

        We know he was directly involved in moving abusive priests around (which, naturally, allowed them to continue abusing) and in discouraging people within the Church from reporting abuse to the proper authorities. If you need more than that, I have to wonder what’s wrong with you.

        • Randi Starr

          you don’t know that………….and I don’t have to wonder about you………you actually think this is the topic of talk in Rome???? You’re just uneducated or naive.

          • BillDing

            We do know this! You can’t “believe” it away. Under JPII Ratzinger was in charge of it. PS Vatican City is not Rome – it is its own city and country within Rome.

          • Randi Starr

            There’s one way you know that, where did he personally move you to? And before you go into overhead bs, please note. I’m not even religious.

  • Randi Starr

    Bill Maher is someone when buried people will visit just to sh it on it.

    • TocksNedlog

      No one should fertilize his legacy.

    The world has shown its true colors. Immature in spirit, humility and compassion.
    All these haters don’t realize their hate actually serves to accelerate the glory increased for Benedict XVI in heaven – having been persecuted for Christ’s sake.
    He has a history as do we all, and has risen to his post as the Vicar of Christ in this world. May he be blessed according to God’s will, Jesus Christ-the ONLY BEGOTTEN Son of God Himself, and the ever beneficent Holy Spirit, with whom we walk each day.
    May the Holy Trinity surround Pope Benedict XIV in protection and love even now, until his last day in this world. May the love and blessings of the Blessed Virgin Mary enfold Pope Benedict XVI. May the Archangel Michael stand before Pope Benedict XVI with flashing swords of protection against satan and all his minions.

    • Randi Starr

      He hasn’t the balls.
