Bill Maher Looks at Extremist Conservatives, Foreign and Domestic, Who Want to Kill Gays: VIDEO

Bill Maher spent a few minutes of Real Time last night talking about religious conservatives here and abroad who really do want to kill gays.

Watch his full segment, AFTER THE JUMP...

M_penceSaid Maher:

"Ever since Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed his Religious Freedom Restoration Act he and like-minded conservatives have been trying to have it both ways. They hate discrimination, but they love the Bible, a book that commands you to discriminate. That's what it says. Gay is an abomination and we must destroy it — by denying it pastry. Of course the root of this problem is that more than half of all Americans believe that the Bible is the actual or inspired word of God. But, now 55% also support gay marriage which must be very confusing. On the one hand, clearly, God has spelled it out. He hates fags. But you like your gay neighbors Rob and Larry. But, the Bible tells you to kill them. Yes, it literally says kill them. What to do?"

Maher then takes a look at religious fundamentalists like California lawyer Matt McLaughlin and his "kill the gays" ballot proposal, Jerry Falwell's preachings about AIDS and 9/11, John Hagee's blaming of Katrina on gays, Pat Robertson's endless condemnations, and Bob Jones's statement that gay people should be stoned to death (for which he has since apologized).

Then Maher notes that in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and other countries they really do kill gays.

"There's so much wrong with America these days, take pride in the one thing that is legitimately better. We don't let fundamentalists rule our s--t. What's the proof? Our gay battles are over cake, and even then, not once has one of these RF laws been used to deny a gay person his wedding cake. What happes is, there's a lawsuit, it goes to court, and the judge says, 'bitch just make the cake!'"

Malik's fans responded with a hefty dose of anger and a #RespectForZayn hashtag.

Bill Maher Pushes Back Against #BoycottDolceGabbana: 'What Is The Point of Attacking People Who Are 95% On Your Side?' - VIDEO

Maher

On Friday's editorial New Rule, Real Time host Bill Maher took aim at various news stories he deemed examples of "intolerance" among those on the political left: Elton John's feud with Dolce & Gabbana over the designers' "synthetic baby" comments, the backlash against The Economist after its cover story image on America's Latinos featured chile peppers, Smith College president apologizing for sending out an email saying "All Lives Matter" instead of "Black Lives Matter," the all-women's Mount Holyoke College canceling a performance of "The Vagina Monologues" because of concerns the play was not inclusive enough for trans women, and more. 

Said Maher:

You can't sell handbags now if you only agree with Elton John almost all the time? In Syria ISIS is throwing gay people off buildings. Maybe there are bigger battles to fight. We liberals always talk about how the right needs to rein in its crazies, but the left has some crazy reining in to do to. 

See why Maher's pissed, AFTER THE JUMP...

In a related video from Friday's episode, Maher and his guests Zachary Quinto, Barney Frank, S.E. Cupp and Jay Famiglietti discussed America's progress on gay rights in relation to other Western countries.
