Bill Maher: If Focus On The Family Is Really Doing Godís Work, Why Are They Always Wrong?
Bill Maher ended his show tonight by asking the Christian group Focus on the Family a simple question: ďIf youíre doing Godís work and God is perfect, how come youíre always wrong?Ē He brought up a huge list of things the group warned would happen four years ago if Barack Obama was elected to the presidency. Itís four years later, and none of their predictions came to pass, leaving Maher to suggest an apology to the president might be in order.

Maher read out some of their predictions, including the end of the Pledge of Allegiance, the taking of all guns, and pornography freely available at all gas stations. He gave them half-credit for predicting the end of Donít Ask, Donít Tell, but went off the rails when they warned it would lead to ďa Fire Island booze cruise sponsored by lube.Ē
Maher acknowledged that the group is nothing more than a cross between the Westboro Baptist Church and Bain Capital, calling them grifters. However, he was surprised that they predicted exactly zero out of 34 items correctly; a bad track record, in his opinion. He presumed that this might lead to an apology from the group to the president, but said that ďin todayís far right,Ē there are no apologies to be had.
ďIs there no penalty in America any more for just being wrong? Wrong. Forget ideologyÖ you thought something in the future would go a certain way, great stakes were riding on whether you got it right, and you didnít.Ē
