  •  it IS to show religion as absurd (1+ / 0-)

    and its' adherents willing to act outside of reason in violence feeling justified by ridiculous beliefs. He asked if they believed, literally, in some their most outrageous stories, living in a whale for three days, worshiping an unidentified rock, Sodom and Gomorrah with the best person 'Lot' offering his daughters up for rape, death sentences for almost everything in the Old Testament,...whew, the list is too long for here.
    I didn't look for a critique like Richard Dawson or someone like him, and other than its' destructive force, it is a joke.
    The joke is the belief of people in things that are better categorized under Walt Disney than something deserving any more argument than equal time for Santa Claus (who is also asked for favors).
    The joking nature is one thing, but those are severe images of violence in this film in the name of a God that has as many definitions as there are people. People that feel their duty is to proselytize and everyone but them are wrong, without exception, to the religion they profess.

    What I really liked was Maher showing the exact same myths of 'virgin birth, working with the poor, healing the sick, curing the blind, raising the dead, resurrection, etc. in cultures around the World long before Christianity.

    The quotes by the Founding Fathers treating religion like the nonsense it is should be treated should be repeated when people call this 'a nation founded in Christianity.'
    Look again, and like Michael Moore films don't let the joking atmosphere obscure what is being said. (said generically not to you in particular)
