In her spirited one-woman show, "DiffiCult to leave," Roslyn Cohn uses song and narrative to recount her Scientology experiences.

In my opinion, Atheists want to be well-informed. They want to know what the other side is saying, and then what they're saying next.

Surely we are to put away certain childish things when we get older. But if we lose all of who we were when we were children -- the wonder, unfettered imagination and ease of faith -- we lose sight of our essential selves.

Why do the militant atheists insist on this intellectual dishonesty? Maybe because confrontational language and side-splitting satire help them make their case.

Lineage and religion -- they are killer topics. It's not easy to escape religious roots. No one makes their own choice at birth regarding religion, yet ancestry and religious rules decide a lot.

After watching your movie Religulous, I was quite disappointed with your depiction of religion as a whole. I don't believe that you were truly out for answers but only to poke fun and mock.

If I want to hear the administration's position I'll go on its website. I don't need a wide-eyed cheerleader echoing what the President's saying. Bias is bias.

Faith is not about hatred and exclusion -- those are perversions of the deepest religious truths. The religious life is not about pretending to know with certainty, it is about living with deep humility.

Bill Maher's new film "Religulous" is important -- not because I agree with Mr. Maher's opinions, but because I find his fundamental mission to call into question the certitude of all organized religions monumentally necessary. I'd even say it was God's work.

Bill Maher's Fundamentalism

Steven Waldman | Posted 05.25.2011 | Entertainment

Maher holds a black-and-white world view that demonizes religion in the same way that some religious fundamentalists demonize those who differ from them. He is a secular fundamentalist.
