New Religulous clip
For those of you who have yet to hear about Bill Maher’s “Religuous,” think “Borat” sans Sacha Baron Cohen, naked dudes and made-up characters, but add a super-controversial topic and a lot of pissed off Bible Belters. In this pseudo-documentary — some scenes are stages and interviews are directed in such a way that he gets the results he wants — Maher takes on all sects of organized religion, which is bound to stir up a lot of crazed debates, and, if past films that have been critical of organized religion are any indication, maybe some death threats.
I may be the only person in America that hated “Borat,” but even though “Religulous” has the same director as that terrible flick, I’m still excited to see it — I really think the topic is interesting and a necessity in today’s America, where more and more people seem to shy away from an open forum on the strengths and weaknesses of organized religion. So, the fact that a feel like this that will get people talking is something this country sorely needs and Bill Maher’s dry wit should make this a worthy watch. If it ends up being stupid, I’ll blame this guerilla-style pseudo-documentary that “Borat” made popular.
Watch the clip below. This film is going to turn a lot of Evangelical heads:
