Friday night on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” host Bill Maher asked when Christians in this country swapped Christ’s message of love and tolerance for a philosophy of “F*ck off and die” toward people who aren’t like them.

Showing an image of Congressional Republicans captioned “Cheap of faith,” Maher said, “New rule: It’s okay if you don’t want to feed the hungry or heal the sick or house the homeless. Just don’t say you’re doing it for their own good.”

“Don’t say you’d like to help but your hands are tied,” he continued, “because if you did, it would cause a culture of dependency or go against the Bible or — worst of all — rob them of their freedom to be sick and hungry.”

“Just admit you’re selfish,” he urged conservatives. “And based upon how little your beliefs mirror the actual teachings of Jesus, you might as well claim to worship Despicable Me.”

Maher cited reports over the last few weeks of people stiffing their servers in restaurants in the name of Jesus. One waitress at an Applebee’s got a note saying, “I give 10 percent to God” and therefore don’t have to tip. In another instance in Kansas, a table refused to tip their young waiter because of his “homosexual lifestyle,” which they said is “an affront to God.” They did admit in their note that the service was excellent, though.

“I would just like to point out,” Maher said, “that not tipping your gay waiter will not make him put his penis in a woman. It will make him put his penis in your pasta primavera.”

Republicans in Congress and other nominal Christians in this country, he said, believe in charity, sure, “just not for people who need it.” Those Christians, he said, mostly seem to be Christians so they can tell other people who they don’t like to “f*ck off and die.”
