I saw this and found it amusing, but in no way do I think Bill's movie was anything more than comedy. It's so easy to pick and choose the 'right' people to get your point across that it's hard to see the film as anything more than, "Let's make fun of religious people!" They're easy targets IMO.
What I would recommend if you want to read a scathing account of religion throughout history is to read the book, "God is not Great. How Religion poisons everything" by Christopher Hitchens. Much more factually based without the comedy schtick all the time, although Hitchens is clever and witty in his own right.
