I always watch Bill Maher's show on HBO and find it very interesting because he talks about facts but also makes it funny where I get to learn about the debate and have a good time. I myself am Agnostic(different from atheist) and I highly enjoy learning about different religions that's why I'm so interested in this movie.

I've been very excited about this movie and, hope to see it soon. Give ur opinion on this movie if you would and please refrain from making any offensive or judgmental comments. :]


Rolling Stones Review:

Bill Maher would have been burned at the stake if his hellishly hilarious and surprisingly thoughtful satire on organized religion had played the Inquisition. As it is, the far right will vilify him as a dangerous heretic, which is also pretty funny. Religulous, linking the words "religion" and "ridiculous," has been directed by Borat's Larry Charles in the same mode as that classic mock documentary. The movie follows the star of Real Time and Politically Incorrect from Jerusalem to Jersey as he questions Christians, Jews, Muslims, Mormons and Scientologists about faith. Maher can be a smartass, but his attempts to apply reason to religion are more a challenge than a threat. Maher, born to a Jewish mother but raised Catholic like his father, jokes about taking a lawyer to negotiate his first Confession. "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned — I think you know Mr. Cohen?" But he's not kidding when he rails against blind faith as a body of lies that can start wars and get people killed.

I agree with him,somewhere around 99% of all wars were started by religion.

And if any of you say him on jon stewart,he is right,we mock scientology but how far fetched is it by comparison to christianity.

this movie seems interesting- but since he is an athiest he will probably be bashing on religions.
i think religion is not bad, ia like my religion, but the religious systems and interpretations of it cause misery and chaos and all these fanatics
