Matthew Ives: Real Time With Bill Maher- The Hypocrisy of Evangelical Christians

The more and more I see "Conservative Christians", the more I believe they don't understand what Christianity is about. Or understand Jesus Christ and have ever even read the Bible or the 10 Commandments. Because Christianity is supposed to be about love, treating people the way you want to be treated, love vi neighbor and all of that, do on to others what you would want done to you. Its supposed to the opposite of hate. And the more I see "Conservative Christians", the more I believe these aren't religious organizations, but more like religious cults. People who are completely warped out like PCP addicts. Who don't understand the world for what it is. And a religion they are supposed to be love and try to convert people to their religion. Even as going as far to the Middle East to covert people to their Religion. These aren't religious groups, but political groups, trying to get into power to pass their political agenda.

Passing a bunch of new laws and limiting the freedom and rights of people that they don't like, just because they don't like them. Its really as simple as that. The same-sex marriage debate, perfect example of that. It wouldn't surprise me if they have at least one lawyer, whose not high or drunk. Actually has a few brain cells left and has told these groups, "look, we don't have a legal case here, if these cases are decided in court. We are going to lose, we can't pass laws restricting people in how they live, because you don't like them." There are probably some sober lawyers working for the Christian-Right telling their clients that because of the U.S. Constitution, they simply don't have the facts on their side. And their best chance to passing all of these restrictions on people, is through the ballot box. And hope it doesn't get overturn in court, that there's a judge who doesn't understand the Constitution.

The Christian-Right in America is the largest religious cult and even though they aren't very large in numbers, maybe 10-15% of the American electorate, almost all of them living in the Bible Belt, they are still very powerful, because they have one major political party in their back pocket. The Christian-Right is so excuse the expression), far up the GOPs ass, that if the Republican Party couldn't get rid of them (even (by taking a huge shit) they need each other for their survival. It comes down to that. Without the Republican Party, the Christian-Right is a third-party in American Politics. Well maybe a major party in Alabama or Mississippi. And without the Christian-Right and the Republican Party appealing to other voters, lets say Independents and Libertarians to replace the Christian-Right, the GOP would become a third-party as well or maybe still a major party. But the Democratic Party would have most of the power across the country. Except in the Bible Belt and we would essentially become a one-party state. Like Mexico 15-20 years ago, which isn't good for any liberal democracy.
