His new documentary, Maher travels all around the world addressing the issue of religion in a documentary called "Religulous" due in theaters October 3rd.




Known for his stance against religion, Bill Maher's views on the various world religions are explored as he travels to numerous religious destinations, such as Jerusalem and the Vatican, interviewing believers from a variety of backgrounds and groups, including Jews for Jesus, Muslims, polygamists, Satanists, Hasidic scholars and even Rael of the Raelian Movement. In the trailer and documentary Maher also interviews research neuroscientist Andrew Newberg, MD, (author of Why We Believe What We Believe) who brain-scans people at the University of Pennyslvania as they pray, meditate and speak in tongues. The documentary was produced by Thousand Words and is being distributed by Lionsgate. Originally slated for intentional release date coinciding with the religious Easter holiday 2008, post-production delays resulting from a screenwriters guild strike pushed the release date back to July 11, 2008. Release has now been pushed back to October 3, 2008.

Maher is kind of an ass, but I can't help but agree with him on a lot of issues. It doesn't make sense to me that his main gripe with religion is that they try to tell other people what to think and how to feel, but he turns around and tells them they shouldn't think/feel certian ways.

Still love the show and would kill to go to vegas with the guy.
