HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" brought real debate about the differences between major religions on Friday night, as Maher made a criticism of the corrupted and radicalized elements of Islam while noting that there were many Muslims who were good people, rational, educated and who shunned these violent factions of their faith.

On Friday night, host Bill Maher interviewed Cal State-San Bernardino professor Brian Levin, director of the Center for Study of Hate and Extremism, who defended Islam despite the events in recent days, and noted that religious extremism isn’t only a problem with Islam.

But Maher shut him down fast, citing “liberal bullshit” and said there was no comparison.

Maher said. “You know what — that’s liberal bullshit right there … they’re not as dangerous. I mean there’s only one faith, for example, that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam. So you know, I’m just saying let’s keep it real.”
