In Religulous, though, Maher's playing an openly rigged game. On one hand, he seems, as always, to display a willingness to take all comers. Bring it, world; anywhere, anyone, anytime, I'll best you, seems to be the subtext of his globe-hopping chats with believers of all stripes. He speaks with worshiping truckers in a big-rig trailer converted into a church, with a pastor who claims to be a direct descendant of Christ, an actor who plays Jesus at a religious theme park in Orlando, a U.S. Senator, a maker of devices that allow Jews to get around scriptural restrictions, an anti-Zionist rabbi who attended a Holocaust denial conference thrown by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and a host of lesser knowns.
