 Bill Maher Asks If We Should “Cancel God” Over Bible’s Slavery Talk In New Special ‘#Adulting’

While Real Time with Bill Maher did not air a new episode yesterday (April 15) on HBO, a new stand-up comedy special from the comedian dubbed Bill Maher: #Adulting debuted on the network and HBO Max.



While the comedian’s latest special touched on pretty much everything that you would expect, from ridiculing Democrats and Republicans alike, to picking on overweight people, criticism of face masks for the general public as well as his reasons for being an agnostic.



After he went on a long political rant, Maher pleaded to the Democratic party to stop “being the party of no common sense,” requesting they take a stand against “people who wake up offended and live on Twitter” that hurt the party by doing and saying things that sound like “a headline in The Onion.”



He then brought up cancel culture but with an interesting spin, bringing Abraham Lincoln, religion and God into the conversation.



“This about always revisiting the past historical people who don’t share your current woke mentality,” he said of cancel culture. “What a cheap way to look enlightened and big yourself up. Abraham Lincoln, isn’t good enough for you?”



Maher was referring to a group of Black students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who called for the removal of its law school’s statue of President Lincoln in 2015 that was initially rejected for being “too extreme” but was later taken down in 2020 after the Black Student Union and the Student Inclusion Coalition supported the removal.

Of course Lincoln “said some racist thing,” Maher said, adding that “every white person in 1860 Columbus had slaves. So did everyone in 1492, who could afford it, including people of color in other parts of the world. … You know who else had slaves? Everyone in the Bible. Should we cancel God?”



“I’ve tried, really,” he added. “Both testaments have lots of rules and laws about slavery and none of them are ‘Don’t do it,’ That never crossed their mind. ‘Don’t do it.’ There’s a lot of laws like — a man kills your slave, you may kill his slave. OK? [It’s] not a defense of slavery.”



What Maher was trying to say was that nobody should look back in history and think they “would’ve known things were wrong at a time when nobody else thought that. Like, if you were living 500 years ago, you’d be like, ‘Uh, well, slavery’s wrong. And gay and trans people should be represented in all of Shakespeare’s plays.’ Shut up! You’re not better. You just came later.”
