- I do
think the patriotic thing to do is to critique my country.
How else do you make a country better but by pointing out
Maher # Patriotic,
- I don't
want my president to be a TV star. You don't have to be on
television every minute of every day - you're the president,
not a rerun of 'Law & Order'. TV stars are too worried
bout being popular and too concerned about being renewed.
Maher # Television,
- The country
has become much more conservative, partly because it's been
taken over by the religious right.
Maher # Conservative,
- We have
the Bill of Rights. What we need is a Bill of Responsibilities.
Maher # Human
we talk about values, I think of rationality in solving problems.
That's something I value. Fairness, kindness, generosity,
tolerance. When they talk about values, they're talking about
things like going to church, voting for Bush, being loyal
to Jesus, praying. These are not values.
Maher # Challenging,
Lama visited the White House and told the President that
he could teach him to find a higher state of consciousness.
Then after talking to Bush for a few minutes, he said, "You
know what? Let's just grab lunch".
Maher # Funny
- We need
more people speaking out. This country is not overrun with
rebels and free thinkers. It's overrun with sheep and conformists.
Maher # Changes,
you want to make it clear to the rest of the world that you
are not an imperialist, the best countries to have with you
are Britain and Spain.
Maher # Power,
- We are
a nation that is unenlightened because of religion. I do believe
that. I think religion stops people from thinking. I think
it justified crazies.
Maher # Nation,
- If you
have a few hundred followers and you let some of them molest
children, they call you a cult leader. If you have a billion,
they call you Pope.
Maher # Famous,
