Bill Maher's "Religulous"
05/13/2010
IconNewark, New Jersey's Roman Catholic archbishop, John Myers,  is upset that part of Bill Maher's movie, Religulous (a combination of the words "religion" and "ridiculous"), was filmed at a Bergen County parish under false pretenses.  Maher told the parish's Very Reverend Charles Grandstrand that he wanted to film his Jewish mother there, because the church was such a big part of her life.  His father was a Catholic.  Maher told the parish folks that the movie he was making would be called A Spiritual Journey .Recently, during his appearance on Larry King's CNN program to promote his activities, Maher said: "This is funny.  Religion accusing me of deception.   Religion, the greatest scam in the history of the world...selling the invisible product for thousands of years, accusing us of deception? [he laughs] We don't lie to people.   What we didn't tell people [i.e., when he was producing the movie] was that it was me doing the interview.  They didn't ask, and we didn't feel an obligation to tell them." This is such hypocrisy that I can hardly type.  Hypocrisy, for those who use it as a daily epithet towards somebody whose point of view they simply don't like, is a behavior of espousing and living in counterpoint.  He accuses religious folks of lying about the divine and about faith, while he lies to people to use and embarrass them.  And this, my friends, gets you a television show, after losing another one for calling the September 11 terrorists braver than Americans.
