Now, it did trigger some protests at the Toronto Film Festival:
A small group of protesters paraded outside the world premiere of "Religulous,"… Waving placards with the slogans "Pray For Bill," "Don't Mock My Religion" and "Hate + Fear + Religulous," the dozen or so protesters marched in a small circle near -- but at a safe remove from -- the front doors of the auditorium both before and after the screening.
I have to wonder why people bother protesting such an obviously controversial film, they're just promoting an event. Of course, criticism wasn't limited to the festival, it did spread to the web:
The logical fallacies of this movie certainly don't end with this list, but I feel my blood pressure rising , so I think I should save my other comments for the coming weeks as Bill Maher will, no doubt, continue to promote his film as a call for religion in all shapes and sizes to commit a quick, painless death so intelligent civilization can flourish
The film hits mainstream theatres October 3rd.
When asked if their movie… was intentionally being timed to come out just before the presidential election, [director Larry] Charles noted dryly, "It's a miracle."
Are you going to see it?
