Looks like even the politically correct Hollywood crowd is having a hard time defending the Religion of Peace. Ben Affleck, who appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher, took Maher to task for his “gross” and “racist” comments.
On the October 3 episode of Real Time with Bill Maher, the HBO program’s eponymous host and atheist scholar Sam Harris argued fiercely about the nature of Islam with actor Ben Affleck. Harris called the faith “the mother lode of bad ideas.” Maher said Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f*cking kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.” Maher went further, saying it is a mistake to think that just “a few bad apples” in the religion share these extremist ideas. Affleck, for his part, accused Maher and Harris of painting Islam with a “broad brush” and called their comments “gross” and “racist.”
