7. serious followup question here...
Edited on Sun May-30-10 02:06 PM by mikita
I have refused to watch any of his clips anymore because of his slamming of Islam, all in *humor* of course. I did watch the one in the OP, and am disgusted that he thinks that's funny.

Can you relay any examples of his statements about women? I have friends who think the sun rises and sets on him, and I'm more curious now.


On Edit: just found PLENTY by googling maher and misogyny.. Thanks for the heads-up, though.
