Now I will start off saying, before today I had no idea who Bill Maher was. I never even heard of him. Well, since one of my incisions (gall bladder surgery) has decided to give more trouble, I was catching up on some old shows from “The View” while resting in the recliner.
Hmmmmpf…. I should have just skipped this one unfortunately. They had Bill Maher on as their guest. The ladies were talking to him about the election and somehow got on religion. Well obviously he does not believe in religion. Again, I did not know this. He was making fun of how we all could believe the story about Noah’s Ark, and then had the nerve to say anyone that believes in religion is just “dumb and young”.
Excuse me??? Now, for one I do not put religion down anyone’s throat. I just don’t think that is the way to do it. You need to be positive and careful of what you say to others while trying to witness to them. But, for someone to tell me I am dumb and young because I believe in the word of God. Ummm NOPE. I will not stand for that at all. Evidently, “The View” was left with their mouths open as well when he was going on and on and they hurried and went to commercial. I just don’t understand how he can sit there and have a clear conscious of putting people down like that.
I actually see myself as a great educated mother, that cares and understands a lot about religion. My faith in God has got me where I am at today. The last two years has been one more roller coaster for our family, and without God I firmly believe we would be off a cliff right now literally. So you can imagine how this really hurt my heart, my feelings, and just left me sitting there disgusted that I was put down by this human being. Talk about first impression… the first time I ever see the guy on TV and this is the way he acts???
I truly think he needs to come back onto the show and give a public apology for what he has said and how he portrayed himself. Will it ever happen? I will not hold my breath!!
