And my review of Bill Maher’s take on Faith, Religulous.  Here’s an excerpt:

“Religulous” occupies one hundred and one minutes of viewing time. When it draws to a close, chances are that you’ll want to see more of the interview footage that didn’t make it into the final cut— and not just for a broader perspective. You’ll want more for that extra bit of clarity. The film explicitly indicates that Bill Maher is wary of religion because it can lead, does lead, and has led to behaviors and attitudes that are anything but compassionate. It’s implied that he would probably be less suspicious of religion if holy texts abandoned uncivilized “Bronze Age beliefs” and were revised to accommodate 21st century culture, epistemology, and geo-politics. Furthermore, Maher would, in all likelihood, be fine with religion when it does not infringe upon another person’s mental and physical well-being.
