Carlin on Religious Right's Homophobia: "Don't These Professional Christians Have Anything Better to Do?" [VIDEO]

George Carlin has still got it after all these years. He weighs in on the "outrage" from the religious right over JK Rowling's outing of the Dumbledore character from the Harry Potter series. He also talks about what Stephen Colbert's run the presidency really says about our country's electoral process.

He adds that the country's going downhill because everyone has "a cell phone that makes pancakes so they don't want to rock the boat". Click on the video to your right for more.
