Merry Christmas from Bill Maher

I don't agree with everything he says here (watch out for some choice language) but his last line is perfect.

" . . . We Just Don't Want to Do It."

For the record, I don't think Jesus would identify himself with any political party.

Now, having said that, this is amazing stuff. First Jon Stewart gives us the news better than the actual news. Now is Stephen Colbert going to preach better than our preachers?

note: I tried to put the clip directly in here but the HTML was all screwy so I couldn't do it. Just follow the link.

This is terrible

I saw this on the Rachel Maddow show tonight. It was a cheap shot and probably not all that important in the grand scheme of things but I laughed out loud. They actually made one of these!

Moral of the story? There might be a few.

The more high profile of a leader you are, the more necessary it becomes to have people you trust who will call you out when you are being a huge idiot.

Maybe there is a reason Jesus was born in a dirty manger in the middle of nowhere instead of center-stage as the Emperor of Rome.

Whoever wants to be the greatest must become the least. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled.

I think there is a certain personality that is attracted to what these men do as televangelists. And I think that personality also makes them more likely to seek the highs of affairs and prostitutes and drugs.

But perhaps most importantly . . .

Never, under any circumstances, become a televagelist.
