Maiden Alley - "Religulous"

Paducah, KY – Today, religion is becoming a pervasive and persistent topic of conversation; one that can provoke conflict, but also call people to social justice. For every Fred Phelps or Father Coughlin that appears on the national stage, there is a Martin Luther King or an Abraham Heschel. But an increasing number of people, like HBO's "Real Time" host Bill Maher and "Borat" director Larry Charles, see religion, all religion, as something to be closely scrutinized and occasionally criticized. Their film, "Religulous," is the result of that scrutiny. Todd Hatton speaks with Larry Thomas about the film, on offer this weekend at Maiden Alley in Paducah.
