We are a nation that is unenlightened because of religion. I do believe that. I think that religion stops people from thinking. I think it justifies crazies. I think flying planes into a building was a faith-based initiative. I think religion is a neurological disorder. If you look at it logically, it’s something that was drilled into your head when you were a small child. It certainly was drilled into mine at that age. And you really can’t be responsible when you are a kid for what adults put into your head. —Bill Maher, of Politically Incorrect fame, on MSNBC’s “Scarborough Country” (from WorldNetDaily via Relapsed Catholic)
Bill Maher is everything an Enlightened Agnostic could ever hope to be: engaging, intelligent, influential, privileged… and like Alicia Silverstone’s character Cher Horowitz, so pleased with himself that he’s utterly Clueless. That, too, is a neurological disorder.
