Consider the mainstream movie called Religulous released in theaters in October starring the popular comedian Bill Maher. The movie's title is a combination of the words "religion" and "ridiculous". I have seen commercials for this movie where Maher is just dripping with the attitude that every religious person is a kook and belongs in the funny farm. Folks are saying things like:
- This movie will show religion for the opiate crutch that it is;
- If people didn't take themselves and religion so seriously the world would be a much safer and calmer place to live;
- Religion. It's funny in that incredibly scary kind of way;
- Many people believe that a world without belief in god(s) would be a significantly better place.
