the great evangelical crack-up, part 2

so, yesterday we talked about a newspaper commentary that pointed to the crack-up of the evangelical consensus. also yesterday, the iconoclast, bill maher, appeared on larry king's show to promote his new mocumentary: Religulous

in this segment, maher, an ethicst (read: a moral atheist), has some tough things to say about religionists in general and evangelicals in particular. however, lest we write him off because he differs from us, may i encourage you to see beyond the caustic humor and hear what is actually being said. if you're like me, each sunday morning you drive by 1000's of people who get along very well without benefit of church or christianity. perhaps he is speaking for them?
