religulous fanatic

I just finished watching Bill Maher's thought provoking, "Religulous". If you get a chance, see it. It raises some very interesting ideas about religion. I was rather disappointed he didn't interview anyone from the Jehovah's Witnesses or Christian Science.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the movie:

Maher: "It's (religion) like the lotto: you can't get saved if you don't play!"

When one minister told Maher the writers of the Bible were "eyewitnesses," Maher said, "You know they weren't eyewitnesses."
The minister said, "Eyewitnesses....within a couple of decades."

After Maher pointed out one preacher was wearing lizard shoes and gold jewelery, the preacher said, "The people want you to look well."
Maher: "That's what pimps say about their women."
Preacher: "Jesus dressed very well."
Maher: "St. Paul...only wore the clothes on his back. Should I assume this is your only $2ooo suit?"

Maher, to a Muslim who was showing him through a mosque: "Women in your culture seem not to be as equal to the man as they are in our culture."
Muslim, pointing to a woman waaaaay over in the corner by herself: "You see, we have a woman here. They have a special corner."
