Flashback — Maher: Obama Is a Drop-Dead Atheist

‘Obama’s always spouting spiritual bullsh*t’

For all the furor over Scott Walker saying "I don't know" whether President Obama's Christian, Bill Maher already took things a step further. In a June 2014 appearance on "The Daily Show," Bill Maher not only doubted Obama's Christian faith, he insisted the president's ostensible religious beliefs are simply a stunt to help him politically (a theory Obama adviser David Axelrod partially confirmed in his recent book):

MAHER: "I don't know about that. You know who is a liar about this is Obama. Obama's always spouting spiritual bull [bleeped], and I don't believe it for a second. He's a drop-dead atheist, absolutely."
STEWART: "No. How many years did he spend in Reverend Wright’s church. He spent a long time in Chicago--"
MAHER: "He never went. He joined because it was politically necessary."
STEWART: "He didn’t go?"
MAHER: "Absolutely no."
STEWART: "Not to the picnics?"
MAHER: "No, nothing. He joined because he wanted to move ahead in that political world, and, of course, you had to be part of the church."
