The Truth Hurts
The religion to which Bill Maher refers has no spiritual or moral connection to Jesus Christ. It is more the bastard, apostate offspring of the Roman Empire's politically motivated absorption and disfigurement of Jesus's legacy.
Anyway, that's just my humble opinion, and I'm not even much of a Christian.
I would like to add to Maher's comments, though. In addition to religion, I think mindless nationalism, otherwise known as chauvinism or patriotism, also plays a part in the mental illness that currently afflicts the U.S.
