    Lawrence O’Donnell thinks it's, "way worse than what Juan Williams said."

    What say you?

    Zach Galifianakis smoked a joint on the show.

    Maher feels the exact same about christian fundamentalism. His issue is religion in general, not just islam. I see no problem with it.

    Worrying about Muslim parents naming a boy Mohammed is like worrying about Christian parents naming a girl Mary. It's a COMMON name. Nobody's making a statement with it, unless they're not Muslims.

    Why does he assume that the people are M*****? It would seem odd that England has a high Muslim population.

    Well, yeah, but Bill is clearly worried about the quantity of Muslims.

    And, you'd only be worried about the quantity of Muslim if you think there is a problem with Muslims.

    I'm not sure my last post was clear. It's not the name itself that worries Bill.

    It's that it signifies the growing number of Muslims. He'd be just as concerned if the name was Yusef or some other common Muslim name.

    Evan: McLovin? What kind of a stupid name is that, Fogell? What, are you trying to be an Irish R&B singer?

    Fogell: Naw, they let you pick any name you want when you get down there.

    Seth: And you landed on McLovin...

    Fogell: Yeah. It was between that or Muhammed.

    Seth: Why the FUCK would it be between THAT or Muhammed? Why don't you just pick a common name like a normal person?

    Fogell: Muhammed is the most commonly used name on Earth. Read a fucking book for once.

    Evan: Fogell, have you actually ever met anyone named Muhammed?

    Fogell: Have YOU actually ever met anyone named McLovin?

    Seth: No, that's why you picked a dumb fucking name!

    Fogell: Fuck you.

    Seth: Gimme that. All right, you look like a future pedophile in this picture, number 1. Number 2: it doesn't even have a first name, it just says "McLovin"!

    Evan: What? One name? ONE NAME? Who are you? Seal?

    This is hardly a secret. Maher has been very honest that he has a problem with Muslims. and Christians ...and Jews ...and Hindus, etc. In fact, he made a movie based entirely on that premise.

    His dream is a secular world. Thus, it's hardly shocking that he'd be alarmed by news suggesting growth and expansion of one of the world's major religions.

    Great Britain has many immigrants from its former colonies. Like Nigeria, where a little over half the population is Muslim, and Pakistan, were everybody's a Muslim. So they have Mohammeds.
