    I think it'll be interesting to watch, but won't pose any new or different ideas. It'll probably be more funny than informative, much in the same way as when channel 4 (i think) did a documentary on the most hated family in america rather than when Richard Dawkins did his series of programs.

    I just like watching the faces of theists change as he compares god to something completely ridiculous like santa.

    If its a funny, well thought out piece of film-making then I'll be interested; if it's just there to blast religion then I'm afraid I don't see the point: it's just as bad as religious enthusiasts trying desperately to defend a useless tradition. Most educated people are smart enough to make their own minds up about religious belief.

    Talk about making sweeping generalizations. Naturally all religions, all the people that practice or have any faith must be severely disillusioned. Riiiiight. I dig that.

    Haha, that looks good. Mainly just to watch the reactions he gets. Also, the line:
    'Gay muslim activists - Thats one job description'
    Kinda hooks it for me

    I'm expecting Louis Theroux levels of embarassment.....I usually have to look away if it gets too cringe-worthy.
