RELIGULOUS Movie Review By Andre Austin Comedian and talk show host Bill Maher has produced, directed and narrated his milestone movie Religulos. It’s so rare for books and films to breakthrough the mainstream media to criticize religion in general but Christianity in particular. For this reason I’m classifying it as a milestone. The movie is semi-autobiographical because Bill details some of his religious background of his parents being Catholic and Jew. Bill went around the world talking to all the major religions to challenge them in why they believed in talking snakes, why they dismissed evolution, why they thought dinosaurs and people coexisted. Bill even questioned a priests at the Vatican if Jesus would approve of Popes building the Vatican structure in such a rich fashion (original Christian called themselves Poor). The priest answer no. Bill also noted that the bible doesn’t endorse Popes, I think its only Bishops and all were equal. It was not until 384AD that the Bishop of Rome called himself Pope for the first time. So I think Peter wasn’t a Pope or foundation of the church in Rome but James and Mary his spouse in Israel. No one was safe in Bill’s documentary, he exposed Black ministers as overdressed pimps selling pie in the sky with young ladies having sexual fantasies with them. He went to trucker pit stops where they had make shift chapels. Bill I believe is agnostic because he declares that “I don’t know”. Bill doesn’t know if Jesus was a historical person either because so much pagan mythology was wrapped around Jesus life. It was only two years ago that I believed that Jesus existed after a documentary book and film, The Jesus Family Tomb, gave me the evidence. However I believe his life and story was falsified to turn him into a God figures like Horus, Osiris and Mithra. Bill Maher proved that the story of Jesus parallels Horus of Egypt. Where Horus raises Osiris (Ausar) from the dead is the Bible’s Lazarus. Horus baptized by Anup who had his head chopped off by Herut is Herod. As a matter of fact you can find 200 similarities of Isis, Osiris, and Horus to the Bible. Bill made fun of a man who made an analogy of the trinity to water=ice, steam and liquid. Horus was born of a virgin. Bill thinks that the virgin story untrue because only two gospels report on it. The most likely case is that a young woman gave birth not a virgin. John the Baptist birth was a miracle from old parents and the original comparison to Jesus parents were that they were young. It was a rare treat to get such a satisfaction from a religious movie that told it like it was and is. Every ten to 20 years we receive such a milestone gift to enlighten our minds get some laughs and jokes and open our eyes.
