Bill Maher Slams Pope Francis And The Media’s Fascination With Him (VIDEO)

 

Bill Maher spent a second week ending “Real Time” by slamming Pope Francis, this time focusing on the media’s fascination with the new pope.

“I have just about had it with the press squealing in delight with everything the new pope does,” Maher said. “He’s a 76-year-old executive who just got a promotion. You act like he’s a baby who just made a boom-boom.”

“There are over a billion Catholics — just on the back of my gardener’s truck,” Maher said, to some applause and even a few boos. “So I get it that this is a legitimate news story. But can we at least stop saying that the job of pope is so hard?”

He even compared the Church to his own show.

“The Catholic Church has basically always done what we do here at ‘Real Time.’ It’s a bunch of guys sitting around making up new rules.”

Maher, who was raised Catholic and is now an outspoken voice against religion, is unlikely to stop his criticism of the pope or the Catholic Church anytime soon. Check out the clip above to see his rant against the new pope.
