Even though his words placed third in the past weekend’s comedy related news (behind the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rally, and Zach Galifianakis smoking a [fake] joint on his show), Bill Maher went on CNN to discuss his comments about the name Mohammed becoming the most popular name in England, and his fears that it could spell the end of Western Civilization.

Maher talked to Wolf Blitzer, and continued to defend his comments. According to Mediate, he told Blitzer:

“And when I say Westerner, I mean someone who believes in the values that Western people believe in that a lot of the Muslim world does not. Like separation of church and state. Like equality of the sexes. Like respect for minorities, free elections, free speech, freedom to gather. These things are not just different from cultures that don’t have them. … It’s better. … I would like to keep those values here.”
