Bill Maher at the Oscars



My friends’ Twitter and Facebook updates have been blowing up with reaction to Bill Maher’s presentation at the Oscars for best documentary, during which he trashed God and bemoaned the ignorance of the Academy for overlooking his irreligious documentary, “Religulous.”

My favorite comment comes from my sister, who says, “Bill Maher is an ignorant douche.”

Maher, who is no stranger to his own irrational beliefs, is a regular target of such descriptions. Before I interviewed him in September, I asked readers of this blog if they had any questions for Maher. A career church leader wanted me to ask if “he’s always been a douche bag, or is this a new look and feel for him.”
