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.
