So Bill Maher stirred up a hornet’s nest with his riff against religion, focusing on the whole story of Noah that has suddenly come to the fore because of the upcoming film, and correctly saying that it shows god in such a terrible light as a baby killer that no one in their right mind should worship him.
This raises the confronted the obvious question: If god was willing to wipe out almost every thing on the Earth (except fish) in one great flood because he was ticked off with human beings, why is he letting Maher walk around unscathed? If anyone deserved a righteous smiting, surely Maher does?
Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association and well-known crazy person knows why Maher is still with us because, like all religious leaders, he can read god’s mind.
“God hopes it doesn’t come to that,” Fischer assured his listeners. “God could, by all rights, take him right now and Bill Maher would have to face judgment by the end of the day. Why doesn’t he do that? Because he is patient with Bill Maher. He doesn’t want to have to do that. He wants to give Bill Maher the time to come to his senses and to come to a place of repentance.”
Well, ok, if you say so, Bryan. But since Maher has been doing his anti-religion stuff for quite a while now, this means that god is a really patient guy.
