Bill Maher scolds mom for having 5 kids: ‘That’s super selfish’
HOLLYWOOD, March 26, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Bill Maher views families with several children as selfish and thinks the world’s finite natural resources come before human life.
In other news, the sun rose today.
Maher has constructed a career out of saying obnoxious, vulgar, and otherwise imprudent things.
He infamously referred to Sarah Palin’s son with Down syndrome as a “retard,” and earlier called Palin something so nasty that we would never print it.
Earlier this month Maher carried some PR water for the abortion movement’s twisted assertion that unwanted children are better off dead when asking a guest on his show whether abortion has contributed to a reported drop in U.S. crime.
Back in 2012 Maher contrasted himself with Pope Benedict XVI being consistently pro-life, by defining himself as consistently pro-death.
“I’m for the death penalty,” he said, and also that adding he believes in “killing the right people.”
“I’m pro-choice. I’m for assisted suicide. I’m for regular suicide,” Maher said. “The planet is too crowded, and we need to promote death.”
This last statement was punctuated by a laugh.
So, it’s hardly a surprise that Maher opened this latest anti-life rant with, “I’m always for less babies being born.”
In a bonus clip from a recent broadcast of the HBO program he hosts, "Real Time", the conversation turned to the recent dust-up from designer duo Dolce and Gabbana’s comments on homosexual marriage and adoption, family and specifically in vitro fertilization.
When a guest of Maher’s pointed out that millions of people had been conceived by the unnatural means, Maher saw the opportunity to pipe up with his anti-life rant for the day.
As he proceeded to take the tired and dusty mantra that The World Has Too Many People off the shelf, conservative political strategist Mercedes Schlapp interjected that his statement that less babies should be born was horrible, adding that she was the mother of five children.
“Well you shouldn’t be,” Maher judgmentally told her.
So much for the Left’s purported sacred cow of “choice.”
When Schlapp stuck up for her children, Maher told her, “That’s super selfish,” attempting again to drive down the World With Limited Resources road.
She told him her five kids will be contributors to society.
“I don’t care,” Maher told her. “They’ll be takers of water.”
Schlapp stuck to her guns and gave it right back to Maher, saying while the U.S. birth rate was falling, her family was providing some extra kids here and there.
“Well, we don’t need extra kids,” he retorted.
I’m so sorry for Bill Maher and people who share his dismal outlook.
First of all, kids are life, hope, the future, and God’s gift. If Maher can’t see that in his life, then that is sad. And I feel bad for him, even while his attitude is grating and irksome.
Life is hard. There’s no denying it. It’s often rough and messy. But it’s always a gift. It always has meaning, and it is always precious.
And it does not ever take a back seat to the earth or its resources, under any circumstance.
It begs the question, “OK, you don’t recognize the gift of life, but why do you presume to deny it to others?”
The self-loathing of liberals that drives this contempt for life is bewildering. You often find it in their defense of abortion and environmental extremism.
This is an absence of joy in God’s gift of life, and a lack of recognition for his call to embrace it by lifting others up.
An imbalanced approach to preserving the environment minus proper regard for life solves nothing.
And a dismal attitude does the Devil’s work for him.
I hope Bill Maher can come to terms with his sourness on life before his time on earth is through, and I hope he achieves the close proximity to God that God desires for all of his children.
In the meantime, I’ll take pleasure in the fact that Schlapp finally shut Maher down.
After she told him her family was doing what it could to populate the world with more kids, as he shot back that no more children were needed, she gleefully added that hers were also half-Cuban, and said, “So there ‘ya go!”
Maher could only respond by putting his face in his hand.
If he only knew how many times the comments he’s made have elicited face-palms.
