Religulous

I just wanted to say that I saw “Religulous” a few nights ago and would recommend it to any and all who enjoy laughing. I suppose some of what is shown is disturbing, but for the most part, just plain funny.

    my dad and i were looking at movie listings, saw that, and neither of us knew what it was. chances are it's probably not one he'd want to see. i'll check out a trailer for it.

    Well, the film does make fun of religion. But the majority of the film is spent making fun of/raising awareness about extreme religious beliefs, things that evangelicals would even find odd/disturbing/funny.

    yeah, i watched the trailer.you know… can i be honest and not get my head ripped off?i see things like the extreme religious people – even some of the 'normal' christiany people who just say silly stuff because they're so shallow, and it appalls me. seriously, i'm so embarrassed and mortified, but i also know that people who are speaking out against the extremism are also speaking out against me, in a way. i'm not ashamed of what I believe, i'm ashamed of the the crazy people, and their misrepresentation of things i find important. i don't know how to sit in a theater and watch something like that, and then interact with non-believers about it without also insulting everything i, myself, believe. i don't believe in defending the crazy people, but i can't go so far as to insult something i take seriously (at its core).also, yeah, the majority of their focus is on the extremism, but the line is never drawn at extremism. no skeptics ever say, 'yeah, the extremists are crazy, but the christians who don't speak in tongues and carry hate signs are cool.'

    Don't worry, I don't think I am strong enough to rip anyone's head off. And you're right, there is no line drawn. Bill does make fun of some more standard beliefs as well. And while few skeptics would say "the extremists are crazy, but the christians who don't
    speak in tongues and carry hate signs are cool" many would still admit
    that there is a distinction between rationally tolerable religious
    beliefs and rationally intolerable religious beliefs. There are some
    theists whose view I deeply respect…it just so happens, however, that
    basically all of them are academic scholars who are probably more
    similar to myself than to the average theist layperson.
