Video: Gay support from a man who wraps lips around Peter (Griffin)
On Friday's "Real Time," "Family Guy" guru Seth MacFarlane continued his streak of saying nice things about queer folk, their right to yank people over to the right side of history, and the air of inevitability that surrounds our movement:

He is an atheist.... and likes a good a**f*** as much as the next guy! KEYBOARD ALERT.

McF"It's okay to be feeling this way, because its right that supportive people are yanking others chains and pulling them into the 21 st century with this. Because while some are trying to comprehend what Dr. Phil is saying... there are others who are committed couples many with families who just need to get on leading their lives with the same rights others have.
Host: The country is changing faster than the right wingers think. And the gay marriage issue has become a real, organic issue...not created out of thin air. So Republicans like Giulians must oppose to get 2012 Iowa primary vote.. Thus, he didn't go to close gay friends wedding.
SILENCE from panel.
Then... Naomi... It should be okay to have gay SC judge. No discrimination based on orientation in court.... like 'open bigotry'.
Reza A: Do you every get the feeling that our children are going to look back at us and say... What the h*** was wrong with you?
He is Muslim... so they get into the 'cutting heads off in Saudi Arabia thing.'
McFarlane: Fighting it is a huge waste of time. All Civil Rights movements have eventually advanced...They are going to lose.
Watch for the kicker joke, though.

That was too much fun. And how delicious would it be to have a Queen on the Court? My panties are riding up like Roy Rodgers on meth.

I absolutely love, love, love Bill Maher -- all the way back to the Politically Incorrect days. But, I do think it was a little bit unfair of him to pounce on Reza's comments about bigotry specifically because he is Muslim. I think that he was suggesting that people are bigoted to varying degrees, and that religions exploit that bigotry. And, that the more unsophisticated the society is, the more prevalent bigotry is -- and by virtue, the easier it is to exploit and take it to extremes.
But, just the fact that one is Muslim (or Hindu, or Buddhist, or even Christian) doesn't dictate that they will be a bigot -- even though some of those religions certainly nurture (coddle) those basest emotions. But, lack of education, ignorance (and overt stupidity) are much stronger precursors for a predisposition toward bigotry.
