Just writing Sean Penn here would be sufficient to make a joke, but this requires a little more depth.
It is laughable for the likes of Sean Penn to talk about the shame of pro-family supporters when he jets around the world doing photo-ops with President for Life Hugo Chavez. When will Sean Penn be ashamed for propping up a man who leaves his own people without electricity? When will he reflect on his actions, or is the Communist in Communist Chic an enhancement?
Hatred, sir? Hatred is the reaction of the Proposition 8 mob to non-politically protected houses of worship. The Gay Mafia doesn’t dare target the black churches, despite the 70% African American support of Prop 8, but rest assured if there’s a Mormon to be pushed around somewhere, the Gay Mafia will be there in their pink Teflon to deliver “justice,” vigilante style, to all who oppose “tolerance.” They are a vile lot of perverts not because of their sexual proclivities, but because their brand of “justice” supercedes the freedom and liberty of everyone else to vote their conscience.
I’d make a witty quip about the Prop 8 mob feeling shame for their children and grandchildren, but it isn’t as if they have any.

Andrea Peyser has nominated Bill Maher for Celebutard of the Week, on the heels of Mr. Maher using the Oscars as a launching pad to attack forms of expression honoring deities he believes non-existent.
My view on this and just about every other assault on religion is the same: I disagree with your non-belief but will defend to the death your right to not believe it.
An atheist attacking God or religious believers is fundamentally absurd. If you do not believe in Him, you are essentially throwing invective and vitriol at thin air. There’s a word to describe people who accost the illusory: insane. Waylaying into religion as a general concept is at least somewhat less deranged, but has no basis in reality. The religious are generally more charitable, more caring, more willing to sacrifice for random strangers than those whose belief system (or lack thereof) does not compel them to consider the less fortunate. Yes, there are generous atheists and stingy Christians, but Ebeneezer Scrooge is not the model for either.
As a Catholic, I believe in God and do my best to follow His word. I am in many ways a failure, but my faith is always dwelling in the forefront of my mind. I do enjoy a ribbing satire, but the point of satire is to make amusement of the absurd. I have no personal hatred for Mr. Maher, Barack Obama, or any other ridiculous character as yet to be lampooned.
