Bill Maher loves the XMAS season, ’cause it’s fun … but he’s alarmed at all the people who embrace the religious element to a point they want to shove it down everyone else’s throats.
The ‘Real Time’ host launched on the growing number of Republicans, now led by freshly-minted Speaker of the House Mike Johnson, who want to turn America into a Christian state.
Although Johnson and many other Republicans have promoted an official religion for the USA, Bill notes they’ve forgotten about the whole separation of church and state thing.
Rep. Lauren Boebert recently scoffed, “I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk.” Her leader, Mike Johnson, has called for a Christian nation that dominates all areas of American life.
Seems pretty basic … the country was founded on freedom of religion. It’s engrained in our Constitution — 1st up on the Amendment roster — yet an alarming number of Republicans are hell-bent on breaking that wall — separation of church and state.
As for why … well, Bill thinks Speaker Johnson is so into this religion thing, he’s just waiting for the world to end so we can get on with the rapture.
