That was calm. I myself don't believe in God but just noticed the meaning of that quote seeming to be misconstrued.

Hence why Obama's 'bitter' remark about gun-toting lower class Republican-voting social conservatives was dead on the money. It's also how the Repubs who keep these very same people down can keep getting their votes as long as they stump on anti-choice pro-homophobia.

"Religion is poison." - Mao Zedong. The butcher isn't actually a hero of mine, I've worked with people who somehow survived the cultural revolution. But it's a good quote nonetheless.

EDIT: The problem with most revolutions is that they're ugly, brutish affairs, and the leaders have a nasty habit of... well, it's all in 'Animal Farm'. Absolute power.

Well, he IS a comedian.

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.

PaoloSmythe it is interesting, but outside of butt fuck no where third world nations, only america seems to have such an obsession with religion; either for or against it.

secondly, those people who care enuff to try to discredit religion, tend to cherry pick the biggest cretins within it, as if such a carefully selected few (from a vast swathe of morons) speak for the absolute heights of rationality and reason. as proven by the surprise expressed in that 2 catholic priests could make almost agreeable arguements.

like terrorism and other objectionable, life altering bullshit; ignore and it will simply fade away.

things like this are basically a chance to find a spastic, point a finger and laugh at the disability. and yet those who indulge in this, claim to be enlightened because of it?

Maher is just another Michael Moore wannabe. (IMO)
