HOLLYWOOD, CA—Television host Bill Maher gathered with famous atheist Richard Dawkins for a web-exclusive episode of Real Time with Bill Maher Friday to discuss the recent, devastating floods in Louisiana, spending much of their time together detailing the immense destruction and blasting the selfless, life-saving relief carried out by the myriad Christian churches in the area.
“These churches, their assistance was absolutely crucial in saving lives—probably lots of lives—which just goes to show you the incredible selfishness of these people, and the depth of their delusions,” an indignant Maher stated. “Like, wow, really? Gathering boats and volunteers and evacuating scores of people from their submerged cars and houses? Opening your churches and homes to victims you don’t even know in the midst of catastrophic flooding in which thousands and thousands of people lost everything they owned? Why, because your magic tyrant in the clouds told you to? Pathetic.”
“I’ve been saying for decades that religion ruins everything, and this is a prime example of that,” Dawkins noted. “I’d bet that more than a few of these Christians are utterly traditional in their beliefs, and there they are, literally giving the clothes off their backs to people in need, instead of just allowing government relief efforts to be totally insufficient.”
“And don’t forget that these churches are tax exempt,” Maher added. “Tax exempt! So what do they do? They use their church campuses as launching areas for disaster relief. [Expletive] Christians!”
“One day—one day we’ll find a cure for religion,” said Dawkins. “Until then, we can only keep doing what we’re doing, and hope more people see that religion poisons everything it touches.”
