In case you missed it in our Life Section over the weekend, here's another chance to see Ben Affleck all but tearing Bill Maher a new one. If you've not had a coffee yet, perhaps grab one before viewing. It's fierce intricate for this hour of a Monday but well worth a watch. If this doesn't get the cogs going, you may as well go back to the leaba for the day.

Last week comedian/TV presenter/satirist Bill Maher made some comments about Islam which did not go down well. This week, he's pretty much done the same thing, but now its reached a much wider audience because Ben Affleck was on the panel...
NSFW for language. Yep, there's cursing and everything. For those unable to view the video, Maher's main argument regarding Islam can be summarised in the following statement: "It’s the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f–king kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book..."

Ben, meanwhile seemed largely more informed, yet didn't keep banging on about that fact. His points of note include: "Hold on - are you the person who officially understands the codified doctrine of Islam?" He also branded the remarks being made as "gross" and "racist" before likening them to "Oh, you shifty Jew... Your argument is, 'You know, black people, they shoot each other... What is your solution? Just condemn Islam? We've killed more Muslims than they've killed us, by an awful lot. We’ve invaded more Muslim countries than they've invaded ours, by an awful lot. Yet somehow we're exempted from these things because they’re not really a reflection of what we believe in. We did it by accident, that’s why we invaded Iraq."

It's worth noting that there doesn't appear to be any Muslims on the panel. Just saying.

That aside, Ben has been the subject of much adoration since appearing on the show, if the following tweets are anything to go by.
