Bill Maher Shreds GOP Official's 'Joseph And Mary' Defense Of Roy Moore

Bill Maher has dissected why a Republican official’s Bible-themed defense of Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore doesn’t work.

On Friday’s “Real Time,” the comedian ridiculed Alabama State Auditor Jim Zeigler for likeningallegations levied against Moore of sexual misconductwith a 14-year-old when he was in his 30s to the Biblical tale of Joseph and Mary.

“Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter,” Zeigler had toldThe Washington Examiner. “They became parents of Jesus.”

“Using Jesus to justify child molestation?” Maher said. “Even the Catholics went, ‘Tried it, doesn’t work.’”

Maher then explained why Zeigler’s analogy was a total flop.

“To my recollection, slight difference,” he said. “Joseph and Mary didn’t fuck. Isn’t that the whole point of that story?”
