According to Maher, the title of the film is a portmanteau derived from the words "religion" and "ridiculous"; the documentary examines and doubts organized religion and religious belief.
Bill Maher interviews some of religion's oddest adherents. Muslims, Jews and Christians of many kinds pass before his jaundiced eye. Maher goes to a Creationist Museum in Kentucky, which shows that dinosaurs and people lived at the same time 5000 years ago. He talks to truckers at a Truckers' Chapel. (Sign outside: "Jesus love you.") He goes to a theme park called Holy Land in Florida. He speaks to a rabbi in league with Holocaust deniers. He talks to a Muslim musician who preaches hatred of Jews. Maher finds the unlikeliest of believers and, in a certain Vatican priest, he even finds an unlikely skeptic.

I just finished it and had a couple of really good laughs - comedian hosting this was a good idea.
Now I think this movie raises a guestion of if you have a religion, is it okay to have hate as well?
Or can you be religious, have Faith, and be compassionate to all living things - even if they don't share your religious views or sexual orientation?
Freedom of religion is a Big Thing - Freedom in all things is very important, but we should know always what we are doing and view our Faith from compassion for one another.
Hate doesn't have to exist.
Love, Light and Joy!
