We had the world for 200 years, only polite to share.
Three well respected scientists (one of which was Christian), two rabbis, two priests from the Vatican (one who was pretty much mocking his own religion), and a U.S. senator, just to name the few good ones I can remember, are the *worst* examples of religion he could find?
Things like the trucker`s church and the Christian theme park were things he obviously did more for the humor, and yeah he did (very obviously) use some of the oldest video editing tricks in the book to get fake reactions out of people, but to say he didn`t interview anybody credible is stupid.
10/11 ain`t bad, because i`m definitely not from an urban background. I hate to live up to the stereotype, but you`ve got me pegged. =)
those of us that dont really care, (except me, since im making a point) aren`t going to post... we watch it, and then generally hit backspace, and look at something else.
i live in a urban area, on the coast, in the south... i`m against big government(conservative?), but im for more money into schools(liberal?) i wish to see all drugs decriminalized (liberal?) but i`ll fight for my right to keep guns (C?) i believe in family, abhor divorce, and think abortion is kinda yucky, but im an athiest... dont try and peg people, most of us dont fall into a category.

[quote]Davymid, have you been to France?[/quote]France is one of the 28 countries I`ve been to, yes. I`ve also been to 15 states, and lived in Houston for 2 years.
[quote]I also like how you`re basically saying "anyone who hates Bill Maher (read: Republicans) is an idiot.[/quote]Where did I say that?
[quote]apparently you didn`t know southern states can border oceans[/quote]Yeah, I`m aware that the US has a south coast.
[quote]You`re just another pretentious European who thinks he has America all figured out. C`est l`ignorance.[/quote]Fair enough. I don`t say that analysis is right in every case, but I maintain that it`s probably scarily accurate if you did a poll of 10000 random Americans.
You bigot, bragging that you`re racist against Aussies eh?
I guess we`re just complete opposites of each other. I hate this guy`s guts, but sometimes he actually is funny. ;-/
Not even CLOSE... I am Atheist, Against gun-control, Republican, For Stem Cell Research, Against Abortiion, Go to inner city public school,and I support the war...Its hard for anyone to peg my opinion
Except they aren`t, at all, in any way whatsoever. A Cold War mentality was outdated 10 years ago, it isn`t any more. The world today is much like it was 20 years ago, though with the ascent of China it`s increasingly tripolar, and Russia is nowhere near as powerful.
davymid: Pretty badly. I also like how you`re basically saying "anyone who hates Bill Maher (read: Republicans) is an idiot. Except for actually having a clue about Iraq and guns."
You`re just another pretentious European who thinks he has America all figured out. C`est l`ignorance.
And as far as travel I`ve been to 2 countries, 3 states.
well said. that Bill guy is awesome.
Type B: Love Bill Maher. From that, I conjecture, you are probably Agnostic or Atheist, pro-choice, pro-gun control, live in the US coastal regions, are from a predominantly urban background, have had extensive travel experience maybe even to Europe, vote Democrat, for gay marriage, support Obama, think the "War on Terror" is a failed and misguided strategy, and think that things are horribly in Iraq and we should never had went there.
Now, Americans, based purely on your views on Bill Maher, how did I do?
I`d be willing to stake large amounts of hard cash on a bet that I can read a person based on their opinion of Bill Maher. I aint no Derren Brown, but I`ll put money on the table that I can read you. Here`s the profile (remember, I`m laying cash on this):
From the comments here, it seems like there`s no middle ground on Bill Maher. Either you think he`s God reincarnated or you think he should be shot at dawn, so vast is the donkey dick that he sucks.
There`s no in-between. No-one thinks "Meh", or, "I agree with some of his views but not others". It`s black and white. Love or hate.
Now, I`m no philospher on the human condition. But I would like to forward a thesis that "You can pin a person`s world view based on their attitude towards Bill Maher". Talk about a litmus test of people`s political, moral, and religious views.
He`s a a very funny comedian first, and a very profound philosopher second... and he knows it. I can see why a person could dislike him.
I`d love some imperial exploitation myself, but what we currently have isn`t anything even vaguely resembling an empire, bad or not, it`s just us providing troops for just about every other country on Earth, because for some reason not even goddamn Germany or Japan can do it themselves. Europe can`t stand up to Russia without American support, and our allies in Asia are barely a joke to China, as far as defense goes.
still pretty good, but I wouldn`t be so hard on the guy. he`s just a comedian playing for ratings and having fun doing it!
Quoted for irony.
Elctro gonad torture is better than Bill O`Reilly or Anne Coulter!
On a side note, I just watched his "Religious" documentory (first thing I`ve ever seen him in appart from the odd net clip). I`m betting he`s non to popular with those of a religious persuasion!
