Bill Maher to Right-Wing Christians: If You Do God's Work, Why Are You Always Wrong?

"Is the problem that you can't follow instructions, or is Jesus just dicking you around?" Maher asks.

On Friday's episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher," Maher wondered why conservative Christians who claim to do God's work always manage to screw up so badly. "If you're doing God's work and God is perfect, how come you're always wrong?" he wonders. "Is the problem that you can't follow instructions, or is Jesus just dicking you around?" 

 
Maher revisits a 2008 letter sent out by Focus on the Family detailing the horrors that would befall the nation if Barack Obama won the Presidency. As Maher points out, not a single one of the group's 34 dire predictions came to pass: school childrenstill say the Pledge of Allegiance and the government has not seized everyone's guns.
 
Maher admits that Focus in the Family is in the business of scaring "rubes" into giving them money, so the truth is not their highest priority. "But 0 for 34?" he asks in disbelief. Watch Maher eviscerate the right-wing group below.
