Maher: 'In Today's Republican Party There's a Term for People Who Hate Charity and Love Killing - Christian'

It sure didn't take HBO's Bill Maher long to make his first hateful remark about the religious right.

Roughly one minute into his opening monologue on Friday's "Real Time" the host said, "In today's Republican Party there's a term for people who hate charity and love killing - Christian" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

BILL MAHER: Are you watching these debates? I mean, yes, the politicians are bad, but the people who egg them on. There, these crowds cheering for executions, cheering for letting people without health insurance die. In today's Republican Party there's a term for people who hate charity and love killing: Christian. These are Christians?

Ah, yes. Another idiot who thinks attendees at Monday's Republican presidential debate were actually cheering for someone to die.

It's almost like they all get marching orders and talking points from the same person within the White House.

Might her first name be Valerie?
