Am I a Believer or bi-polar?

Bill Maher, host of HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher," had some pretty harsh things to say about Christians this week. Some people think he's an idiot, yet there's a huge part of the population that watches him, and agrees with him.

Where does this hit you?

"We are a nation that is unenlightened because of religion ... I think that religion stops people from thinking. I think it justifies crazies ... I think religion is a neurological disorder. If you look at it logically, it's something that was drilled into your head when you were a small child."

If you break apart relgion from authentic Christianity, does he have a point? Have you ever stopped to consider the difference between "religion" and "Christianity"? Is there a difference? I have to admit, there were things that were presented to me as a child that were religious, but in no way scriptural.

I'm chewing on it.
