    And we’re back. Joining me again is my guest, Bill Maher.

    Now, this is Bill’s sixth appearance on The God Blog in as many weeks; I suppose the visits will stop soon after his new docu-drama, “Religulous,” is greeted at theaters by protesters Oct. 3.

    My feature/review of Bill Maher’s new film, “Religulous,” is off to the printer and will appear in tomorrow’s Jewish Journal. It’s a decent piece and, if nothing else, includes the pretty cool, ultra-pious photo seen here (now my desktop background). In short, I liked the movie... read on

    The U.S. economy has stalled—and that’s better than what it was doing last week—as it awaits word of a $700 billion government bailout. California’s economy is bad and getting worse. Where is God in all this?
