Maher: Catholic Priests Would Use Birth Control If Altar Boys Could Get Pregnant

There clearly is no limit to Bill Maher’s depravity.

On TBS’s Conan Tuesday, the comedian beloved by the liberal media said that Catholic priests would use birth control if altar boys could get pregnant (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

Not surprisingly during his discussion with Maher, host Conan O’Brien brought up the announcement earlier this week that the Pope was resigning.

What a marvelous topic for a man who in 2008 said the Pope "used to be a Nazi" and is the leader of a "child-abusing religious cult."

As such, having been perfectly teed up by his host, Maher predictably had some disgraceful things to say about one of the world’s leading religious figures after which he said, “We found out earlier this year or last year in the primaries when the Republicans made contraception an issue that 98 percent of Catholics use birth control. Apparently, the only ones who don't are the priests.”

After some laughter, Maher continued, “Oh they would if altar boys could get pregnant.”

This from a man who last week joked about Boy Scouts having oral sex.

Of course, besides the disgusting swipe at priests, Maher was - as he so often is - factually challenged concerning who made contraception an issue during the 2012 presidential campaign.

Like so many of his Obama-loving brethren in the media, Maher conveniently forgets that the whole controversy started when the President issued an edict last January concerning birth control coverage by employers.

Why would a shill like Maher - especially one that contributed a million dollars to Obama! - feel the need to tell the truth when it might interfere with his agenda?

Sadly, there's a lot of that going around in the media today.
