Bill Maher says God is a 'psychotic mass murderer'

Controversial liberal comedian Bill Maher has raised the ire of conservatives and Christians across the nation with comments he made during Friday night's broadcast of HBO's "Real Time." Maher was discussing the upcoming "Noah" movie starring Russell Crowe when he said God was a "psychotic mass murderer."

“But the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly, it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God,” Maher said, “What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at? I mean, besides Chris Christie.”

Maher went on to say, "Conservatives are always going on about how Americans are losing their values and their morality, well maybe it’s because you worship a guy who drowns babies. I’m reminded as we've just started lent, that conservatives are always complaining about too much restraining regulation and how they love freedom, but they’re the religious ones who voluntarily invent restrictions for themselves.”

Maher has been very vocal over the years about his atheist views and makes no secret of the fact that he views anyone who believes in a creator as less than intelligent. In his 2008 documentary "Religulous," Maher visited several locations around the country interviewing an odd collection of "believers" in order to prove his point, that religion is ridiculous. Hopefully, for Maher's sake, God will see the humor in the egotistical comic's narcissistic views in the afterlife.
