Joy Behar Compares Religion To Drug Addiction

Current TV's Joy Behar on Monday compared religion to drug addiction.

This occurred during a discussion on her appropriately named Say Anything show about Angus T. Jones's plea that folks not watch the "filth" on his hit program Two and a Half Men (video follows with transcript and commentary):

JOY BEHAR: You know, the thing about this kid is that he also had a downward trend. He was using drugs, and then he found religion. A lot of times I’ve noticed that people do that. They’re on drugs, and then they give up drugs, they need a new addiction, and the new addiction is religion.

So the billions of people around the world who believe in God are addicts.

And this woman has two nationally televised programs to speak such nonsense on.
