Here's the trailer for Bill Maher's film Religulous. It seems it will consist of little more than Bill Maher wandering around interviewing people and snickering at their religious beliefs. I love it!

It may or may not change minds. Likewise, Christian missionary efforts may or may not change minds; suicide bombings may or may not change minds; political advertisements may or may not change minds, etc. The film will further legitimate the public airing of frank, unapologetic criticism of religious beliefs, and further erode the conversational standard that holds religious beliefs above criticism. Whatever else the film communicates or achieves, it will communicate and achieve that, and for that I thank Bill Maher and the producers of this film.

Often comedy can infiltrate closed minds better than frank, serious discussion. I can't wait to see this movie.
