"Why even listen to #MittRomney on foreign policy? His entire FP experience is 2 yrs trying to brow-beat Frenchmen into joining his cult"
- @billmaher, May 21, 2012
Maher is no stranger to criticism toward The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
In 2008, Maher produced the documentary Religulous, in which he ridiculed many tenets of the LDS faith, mostly using scenes taken from evangelical Christian anti-Mormon films and interviews with two men who left the church.
Presumtive GOP nominee Mitt Romney is a life-long member of the LDS faith and served a full-time two-year proselyting mission to France in the 1960s.
Romney has been faced with the 'cult' moniker in reference to his religion in the past.
Jeffress has since toned down his rhetoric about the LDS faith and has thrown his support behind Romney.
In February, Maher donated $1 million to Priorities USA Action, a super PAC that supports President Obama's reelection.
Maher has been criticized for other controversial remarks on women, causing the Obama campaign to distance themselves from him.
