During Friday night’s “New Rules” segment, Real Time host Bill Maher criticized Republicans for criticizing the Democrats for leaving the word “God” out of their convention platform …”Perhaps because it’s a platform and not a spell,” Maher said.
Maher launched into a rant about his perception that what Americans really worship is a God called “money.”
Starting with a critique of Republican hypocrisy on religious issues, Maher said:
“…this week, Mitt Romney up’d the ante, telling a crowd in Virginia ‘I will not take God off of our coins!’ …taking a bold and unwavering stand against something no one has ever asked anyone to do.”
“Other things Romney will not do with currency, no matter how much you threaten or plead include nailing a silver dollar to his forehead and shoving a roll of dimes up his ass. By the way, that’s Pat Robertson behind Mitt … because who knows more about using the connection between God and money.”

British PM candidates clash over Brexit as Boris Johnson skips debate
Candidates to become Britain's next prime minister clashed over Brexit strategy at their first debate on Sunday but the frontrunner, Boris Johnson, dodged the confrontation.
The 90-minute debate on Channel 4 featured the five remaining candidates and an empty podium for Johnson, the gaffe-prone former foreign secretary and former mayor of London.
In sometimes ill-tempered exchanges, four of the five candidates said they would seek to renegotiate the draft Brexit divorce deal agreed with Brussels even though EU leaders have repeatedly ruled this out.
