Bill Maher Hosts Muslim Fashion Show (Video)Author: Jon Martin | Saturday, September 11th, 2010 |
In this clip from Bill Maher’s ‘But I’m Not Wrong’ stand-up special, Bill comes out on stage for an encore performance after finishing his set. Instead of just telling a few jokes, Maher hosts a faux fashion show with Muslim Dior models, all wearing makeshift niqabs.
Maher toes a fine line in taste and some viewers might be turned off by Maher’s eagerness to pounce on Islam. You have to remember though, Maher is an atheist and even though he might believe in religious equality, he also believes in his right to make fun of all those religions. I don’t think he believes all Muslims wear niqabs or that all of them beat their wives, I think he is more or less roasting the religion.
When you roast a person, you put a funny spin on someone’s biggest faults, their most glaring issues, things that people are afraid to say because it is considered crude. Maher is doing the same thing, just pointing out that Islam and religion and general isn’t all just love and happiness. A lot of religion, in fact, almost all of religion is people believing in things that are fairytales and have no basis in reality. That in itself is fine but when those fairytales start to have real world consequences, something is seriously out of whack.
Christians and other denominations in our country ignore the fact that if they were allowed to do whatever they wanted we would probably be living in a theocracy right now. Then again, that’s actually what most religions want. Or at least, what they think that they want.
