He waited until the end of this diatribe on how stupid Americans are to throw this in:
A smart guy named Chesterton once said: “My country, right or wrong is a thing no patriot would ever think of saying… It is like saying ‘My mother, drunk or sober.'”
My Anglican and Roman Catholic friends know that G.K. Chesterton was one of the most eloquent defenders of Christianity has ever had against all comers–and that included atheists like Bill Maher. People like Maher are generally reluctant to favourably quote any Christian author.
Bill Maher is either ignorant of who Chesteron was or desperate. And New Atheism is supposed to deliver us from both.
