Earlier this week, I asked political commentator and comedian Bill Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" to weigh in on the outcome of the 2012 election and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Below is the uncut, uncensored interview in which he talks about America's...

In “Religulous,” Bill Maher asks a worshipper at the Trucker’s Chapel in North Carolina how he can be certain there is a God. I don’t remember the guy’s exact words, but the gist of his response was: I can’t be sure, but following Jesus is the only way I can be sure I won’t burn in...

Don’t tell my wife, but I do often make mistakes, and occasionally they end up in print. This happened last week with my feature on Bill Maher’s “Religulous.” The inaccuracy in the article didn’t reflect poorly on Maher, but on me, because I was the person I misrepresented.

For a refresher on the documentary’s contents, read this post. You have about four hours.

Bill Maher, my favorite Irish Catholic Jew after David McGrath Schwartz, has a documentary coming out Oct. 3 titled “Religulous.” It doesn’t look ridiculous to be but, as you can imagine, there is a whole lot of holy hand-wringing going on.
I’m likely going to interview Maher in the next few weeks for The Journal, but, for now, all I have to offer is the above trailer, which resembles a religious bloopers reel.
