Video: Bill Maher Slams the Idea of American Exceptionalism

| by Michael Allen

On his HBO show, on Saturday night, 'Real Time' host Bill Maher said that America should drop the idea of "American exceptionalism,” which is the belief that God has made America an "exceptional country" (video below).

Maher said in a hundred years, the United States will be a Mormon nation because “it’s a stupid religion and a stupid country, they were made for each other.”

Journalist E.J. Dionne tried to defend Mormonism, but Maher dismissed the religion as the work of a “con man” in contrast to Jesus, who Maher said was "revolutionary and sincere."

There is no mention of "American exceptionalism" in the bible.
