Surprise: Bill Maher Is Bill Maher

"I call God a dick and you're surprised. Who are you, Rick Santorum??"

And religion is religion. Who goes crazy when they hear Bill Maher, celebrated atheist that he is, rail against religion? Nobody who doesn't need their head examined, that's who.

Over at TPM, they zero in on Maher's latest beef, Noah:
The target of the comedian's [Bill Maher's] wrath was the blockbuster epic "Noah," which centers around a biblical tale that's routinely drawn Maher's mockery.
He rolled his eyes at polls showing that a majority of Americans believe the story of Noah's Ark and said the Genesis flood narrative is "immoral."
"It's about a psychotic, mass murderer who gets away with it and his name is God," Maher said. "Genesis says God was so angry with himself for screwing up when he made mankind so flawed that he sent the flood to kill everyone — everyone. Men, women, children, babies. What kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he's mad at? I mean, besides Chris Christie."
"Hey God, you know you're kind of a dick when you're in a movie with Russell Crowe and you're the one with anger issues," Maher added, punctuating a zinger that has been met with gasps.
"This May Be Bill Maher's Most Intense Rant Against Religions – All Of Them - Yet," read the headline over at the Huffington Post.
Michelle Malkin's acolytes at Twitchy asked, "Can Bill Maher get more absurd?"
Yes, Bill Maher can get more absurd. That would be if he suddenly found religion.

Anyway, I hear that Darren Aronofsky added six-armed angels because, like, the Bible is so boring, or something.

Mel Gibson and Kevin Costner should have collaborated on this one, don't you think?
