Bill Maher Doubles Down On His Comments That Too Many Babies Named Mohammad Are Being Born in England (VIDEO)

Last Friday on 'Real Time With Bill Maher,' Maher said he was alarmed that Mohammad is now the most popular boys name in England. Appearing on "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer," (weekdays 5 PM ET on CNN) Maher further explained -- but didn't at all back away from -- that comment.

"I don't feel like I have to apologize for being a proud westerner," he told Blitzer. "When I say a westerner, I mean someone who believes in the values that Western people believe in, like a lot of the Muslim world does not."

"I would like to keep these values here, and if Muslim people in societies are having babies at rate at 6 or 8 times what the other people are having ... in 200 or 300 years, if Muhammad is the most popular name now, I don't want England to lose those values."

Maher is well-known critic of all religions, so perhaps that's why these Muslim-specific comments haven't kicked up more of a firestorm. Still, these days it's a getting difficult to keep track of what people of which ideologies are allowed to say what about which people on what television stations.
