With Just One Tweet, Bill Maher Has Christian Conservatives Foaming at the Mouth

The above tweet from Bill Maher about the Broncos’ loss to the Buffalo Bills has some Christians spitting mad – particularly those on FOX. Follow the Money host Eric Bolling tweeted that Maher was “vile trash,” and on Monday joined his co-hosts of The Five in slamming the comedian.

A boycott of HBO by Christian conservatives angry at Maher has since been widely reported by the media – though the only evidence of a boycott we can find are a few dozen tweets by people who likely don’t watch the network anyway.

Maher, a vocal critic of religion, is probably enjoying all the free press. Season 10 of Real Time With Bill Maher premieres January 13.
