'Trumpism is a Christian nationalist movement': Bill Maher blasts religion for Capitol riots

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher blasted QAnon and Christianity on his Friday evening show.

"New rule, as long as we're going to go through the trouble of another impeachment trial, we might as well be honest about what it's really about. The events of January 6th were a faith-based initiative," Maher said. "And Trumpism is a Christian nationalist movement that believes Trump was literally sent from heaven to save them."

"It's fun to laugh at QAnon with the baby-eating lizard people and the pedophile pizza parlors, but have you ever read the Book of Revelations?" he asked.

He then went on to describe how the world ends in the Book of Revelations, "but space lasers from Jews?"

"Please, magical religious thinking is a virus and QAnon is just it's current mutation," he argued. "That's why megachurches play QAnon videos, it's the same basic plot: Q is a prophet, Trump is the messiah, there's an apocalyptic event looming -- the storm -- there's a titanic struggle of good vs. evil and if you want good to win, just keep those checks coming in."

"We need to stop pretending there's no way we'll ever understand why the Trump mob believes in him, it's because they're religious. They've already made space in their heads for sh*t that doesn't makes sense," he continued.

"It's not a coincidence that every senator who objected to certifying the Electoral Vote in Arizona is an Evangelical Christian," he said.
