Bill Maher’s Religulous

Well, I saw Bill Maher & Larry CharlesReligulous yesterday afternoon… and while it was the third weekend in theaters, there were more people in attendance than the opening weekend of Expelled (same theater in Eugene, same time of day).  Hmmm…

Anyway, funny funny funny movie.  Of course, considering the subject matter, there’s a wealth of comedic opportunity.  While it is primarily making fun of religion by talking down at its followers; well, there are some good points made.  Obviously, I’m biased, though… I like Bill Maher, and I tend to side with him in many areas.  Meh… sue me.

Check it out if it’s playing near you, or when it hits the DVD shelves.

If you like Bill Maher, you can get his HBO show Real Time for free as a podcast… check it out here (iTunes link).

Fox News has nothing better to talk about than magazine touch-ups, as they are effectively on the wrong side on the issues when it comes to the constituents… might as well talk about magazine close-ups of former beauty queens:

Wow… very level headed and rational take on how religion & politics should interact…

And then there’s this guy who doesn’t know what the Constitution even says… and he doesn’t know that “In God We Trust” was adopted in the 1950s (not in the Constitution by the founders of this nation)…

Why do McCain and other politicians (Romney, Bush 41, Bush 43, etc) who say these types of things want to exclude 16%+ of their constituents who are non-believers/unaffiliated with religion?

Barack has claimed to be a religious person; and while I don’t hold his views, I’m completely fine with a politician having views contrary to mine. That’s what freedom of/from religion is all about. What I like about Barack’s speech above is that it separates him from the common pandering politician. He doesn’t try to force his religion on the populace (like other legislators). Hopefully it’s not “too good to be true.” Hopefully Obama can beat McCain in November.
