  • Maher can be a smartass, but his attempts to apply reason to religion are more a challenge than a threat. show more

  • For the most part Mr. Maher is an equal-opportunity denigrator, but it's worth noting that humor fails him when the subject is Muslim fundamentalism. It's hard to make light of what frightens us. show more

  • While even believers can support Maher's skepticism, when he denounces the faithful in sweeping absolutes at film's end, he sounds as absolutely certain as those he has mocked for the previous 100 minutes. show more

    RELIGULOUS I loved it.There is no blasphemy here! Just honesty and questions that anybody who has or wants to know questions about other denominations,I really LOVED the part of Bill speaking with a priest in the Vatican that leads me to the episode of Penn&teller's ******** in the VATICAN.Bill u will never fully understand faith but if u lived in the day of CHRIST as I u would be Peter and I shall be Mary M.I call myself Chistain-like since hell and purgatory was your demise(Catholic).Your really pinned down alot of please excuse non-catholics.Thanks u went above and beyond.Your intellect super-ceeds your soul.Being of Cath.-Jewish background all I can say is GOD does bless u,please put more out on TV is a powerful tool and so are u.PSCOTT,KY.

    Wow! WTG Bill Maher! I couldn't belive how many things you said that I've thought and said. Why do people feel they have to live theirs lives according to the laws of books written 2000 years ago by men? Anyway, apprecaisted the candid and honest approach to a touchy subject. Loved the rebel preist at the Vatican! A man after my own heart!
