Religulous


I enjoyed watching Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, and I was sad when it was canceled after his controversial post 9-11 remarks. I don't have HBO and haven't been able to see Real Time with Bill Maher so I was excited to see his documentary Religulous. He mainly focuses on the 3 major religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam but manages to sideswipe other religions as well. Mr. Maher is as irreverent, provocative and hilarious as ever. If you are quickly offended, this film is not for you. But you'll be missing out on a hell of a good time.

Bill shows us in a humorous yet thought-provoking way how religion has become such a divisive force in our world. It is a commentary on faith, dogma, fundamentalism and how religiosity has come to mean fanatically sticking to a belief system where "I'm-right-you're-wrong-so-that-means-I-can-kill-you". When one is too rigid, unbending and unyielding, one can only break. And the world is breaking. May God help us all.
