There were some good celebrities who sang/performed for the Pope or did a liturgical accompaniment for the Pope and the Catholics. The more we focus on Bill Maher, the less people hear of those who were there for the Catholics including Mo Rocca, Kelly Clarkson, Harry Connick, Jr. Kim Burrell, Stephanie Mills, Placido Domingo, George Steinbrenner and so many more.
Bill Maher will fade away but let us always be grateful to those who celebrated Pope Benedict's visit.
You can't seriously be worried about him being unemployed. The guy has enough money and could certainly continue doing stand-up. Everyone has a right to say what they want, but the public also has the right to be heard and to influence who appears on TV by voicing their opinion. Bill Maher will be fired if a large enough contingency of people put pressure on HBO. That is the democratic way. So, let your disgust be known and exert your influence. If you are successful, then so be it. He will not go hungry, but you will have made a positive difference in society. People choose to go to Hell by sinning; it is not God's choice. Similarly, Bill Maher is sending himself off the air by offending the sensibilities of the populace. He reaps what he sows.
I agree, we should focus on the positive aspects of the Pope's visit, but at the same time should we allow hate to fester and contaminate others? Just a thought.
A Simple Sinner,
I want to agree. I need to pray more.
Yes I'm serious. And you have a somewhat valid point that he won't go hungry from losing his job. Again, I need to pray more, but not to much, he isn't important enough to worry over mind you.
Thank you again for visiting and reading my blog!
In Jesus, Mary, & Joseph,
Tito, I actually was concerned about him losing his job too at first. But he is probably well off and has other ventures for making a living. I posted the firebillmaher button on my blog because he will continue to attack the Catholic church. I don't feel its right to be silent when someone attacks our Church and our Holy Father.
You also make good points of him being well off. Though he probably wouldn't change... either way of keeping or losing his job.
So maybe would should campaign to have him lose his job and pray for him as well.
To show that we are concerned about the calumny towards our faith.
