Senior Organization calls for Maher’s Cancellation


AMAC’s Founder, Dan Weber

– AMAC, the 250,000 member Association of Mature American Citizens today called for the cancellation of Bill Maher’s TV show on HBO after Maher used the F word describing what Jesus did to Tim Tebow following the loss of his Denver Broncos to Buffalo on Saturday.

“It is one thing to mock a religious figure for a few cheap laughs, it is another thing to blaspheme Jesus, a young man, who many believe gave his life as a sacrifice for all humankind.” said Dan Weber, AMAC’s president. “Maher evidently doesn’t think Jesus is the divine Son of God, but he has no right to insult millions of Christians who do”.

“Has American society sunk so low that nothing is considered sacred? If we fail to denounce Maher and stand up for decency what will become of us? Should we tolerate this kind of ill mannered behavior and ignore our responsibility to provide our children with a world where respect and dignity are virtues to be strived for?”

AMAC, which describes itself as defending the traditional values of Faith, Family and individual Freedom, is calling for its members to contact HBO which airs Maher’s TV show. Weber said, “We should not become angry at the thoughtless utterances issued by Bill Maher.Instead we should invoke the great power of prayer to fill him with a common sense of decency and respect for those of us who revere our religion.”

“Whether you are a member of AMAC or not, please join us in this effort, write and email HBO and demand the Bill Maher show be cancelled. ”

Join us in our effort to send a strong message to HBO. AMAC and its members value decency and decorum, we will not tolerate hateful behavior that serves to undermine faith and family.

Help us reach our goal of 50,000 signatures to cancel the Bill Maher Show. Share and forward this post to family and friends.

Howdy! I realize this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work?
I am completely new to running a blog but I do write in my diary everyday.

I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

I was seeking a senior organization other that AARP. I must say you are entitled to your opinion and glad you stand up for what’s right. But to force a man out of work because you do not like his responses is quite arrogant. I will not join any organization that would seek to put someone out of work because he exercised his freedom of Speech. If I do not like his show and I do not. I do not watch it. While I agree his remarks are careless and ugly and I have no problem telling him so. To seek retribution is ugly in itself. Stand up and speak your mind, but retribution and judgment If I am not mistaken should be left to the God you stand up for ..

Please do not tell me you have never made nasty comments. One must ask if you would have stood up in the same manner if it did not concern you, personally.

I would not join this organization it is easy to see you are out for Vengeance

I’m asking you to reconsider having his TV show on your channel. After watching the show for just a few minutes, I find his behavior repulsive. I talks nothing but hate and evil using foul language. I don’t find him the least bit funny or interesting. In fact, I asked myself why do you even have him on TV. He is not entertaining or funny. I think, in all honesty, he is one sick man. Again, I ask you to think about the value he is adding, which is nothing, to HBO. PLease take him off the air.

Just look at the picture of Maher’s face; the ugliness & hate of his character is perfectly reflected in the ugliness of his face; I feel sorry for him. Unfortunately, he may never learn or know that hate, even in the name of comedy, will just begat more hate.

Anyone that speaks against the GOD that I serve I”m also against. HBO do your job and rid yourself of this character.

Mr. Maher should know better – and he does, having been raised Catholic – but he also knows how to get people to pay attention. Just as Mr. Limbaugh knows better with some of his stuff. First, it is easy to vote with your remote control. Second, it is our duty to admonish sinners, so that we must give good witness. To the reader talking about Christians talking of ‘turning the other cheek’, that expression is used to combat violence; it forces the aggressor to sin by expending themselves & their violence upon you – leaving them spent. It is not about tolerance. It is about showing intolerance to nonsense. Turn your TV OFF!

I Don’t watch HBO. Won’t Pay for it. That’s my no vote. Won’t become part of the roused rabble to ask for change over little things. It could work the other way too like with Rush this week.

This poor excuse for all human being, should never have been given a position in front of the public.

Bill Maher is someone that must hurt others to make his( he thinks) comments funny…anything for attention! In my lifetime, we called those pitiful excuses for human beings creeps…His initials define him perfectly….BM!!!!!

He is crude and lacks any empathetic qualities! He is one of few individuals that I can use the word “creepy” and that sums them up…Bill Maher is creepy!!!

I’m 61. I guess that makes me a mature guy. When I see “respect and dignity” used as code words for the religious demanding to be protected from having their beliefs mocked, I have to control my urge to vomit. Religion is a scourge on humanity and every bit of mockery thrown at it is a good thing from my point of view. AMAC members need to grow up.

Would it be okay with you if Bill had said this about Barack Obama? If so, then you are consistent. If not, then you are a hypocrite.

As do I. Christians have a problem with separating themselves from their beliefs. A belief is just an idea, and NO idea is sacrosanct from criticism, protest, satire, or mockery. Not in America! get over it, AMAC!

You have this backwards. If Bill had used crude language to describe a Christian, let’s say he called Tim some horrible, crude name. Christians would turn the other cheek, as is taught in scripture. But Bill said something crude about Jesus Christ. Because Jesus Christ is separate from us, because he is God, and because Christians uphold his sacred name, that is why they protest Bill. It is not for themselves. I applaud Christians for defending the sacred name of God. I just feel sorry for Bill. He just doesn’t realize what he has done. If he did, he would be the one to apologize.

Bill Maher is also very selective in who he criticizes. He only says ugly things about those who will turn the other cheek, or who it’s politically expedient to criticize and mock. There are certain sectors whom, for his own safety, he wouldn’t dare mock.

What has Bill done for you lately? Make you laugh at his jokes? I’d say he has earned all you support! But God, well, he hasn’t done anything for you except supply the air you breath each moment, send the sun and rain to make your daily bread, give you amazing fingers that can type messages on email to be posted for the rest of humanity to read, give you a mind to make decisions, eyes to see and read, ears to hear music and laughter. But no, I don’t see how God has earned your support lately, not at all!
