Religulous: A

religulous, originally uploaded by machu picchu.

I just Netflixed Religulous ( Comedian Bill Maher's rant against religion is heavy handed, rude, and purposely disrespectful to people's faith, but it's also honest, thoughtful and funny.

I agree with much of Maher's criticism -- especially of Christianity and Christians -- but I'm not as pessimistic about faith in general. Sure, the specific religious stories are silly, but I suspect more has been accomplished based on stupid blind faith than smarmy faithlessness. Right?
