If there is such a thing as a hate crime then why isn't Bill Maher being prosecuted? He accused Pope Benedict XVI of being a Nazi and then corrected himself by saying, "The pope was not a Nazi when he was a teenager. He was in the Hitler Youth, which meant that he said the oath directly to Hitler and not to the Nazis, which is sort of worse."
Maher is infamous for his anti-Catholic tirades. If I were a subscriber to HBO which provides this scumbucket with a forum, I would cancel and let them know what I think of their pathetic attempt at comedy.
If only he would make Islam the recipient of his bile, we could look forward to finding his headless torso in a back alley somewhere. That would be more amusing then his tired routines.
