VIDEO: Ben Affleck clashes with Bill Maher and Sam Harris over criticism of Islam

Over the weekend, we came upon this video featuring the "fired-up Ben Affleck" debating with book author Sam Harris (The End of Faith) and HBO’s Real Time host Bill Maher over their criticism of Islam.

Ben Affleck vs Sam Harris on Bill Maher Show

The 10 minutes and 5 seconds video basically started with Maher summing up a previous show with the statement, "liberals need to stand up for liberal principles", and so on.

At 0:34 mark, Maher started the topic, "In the Muslim world, this is what's lacking then they get upset". Afterwards, Harris went on to his lines, wherein he stated "They’ll criticize Christians … but when you want to talk about the treatment of women and homosexuals and free-thinkers and public intellectuals in the Muslim world, I would argue that liberals have failed us".

"We have been sold this meme of Islamophobia, where criticism of the religion gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people. It’s intellectually ridiculous.", Harris added.

Evidently, Affleck got fired up with Maher and Harris' points of view at the early part of the show. The actor called Harris' words as "gross" and "racist". "It’s like saying, ‘Oh, you shifty Jew!", Affleck exclaimed.

The show, cum debate got very interesting along the way.
