ben affleck bill maher islam muslims real time Ben Affleck disagrees with Bill Maher's 'racist' take on Islam on 'Real Time With Bill Maher'Ben Affleck clashed with Bill Maher in a discussion about Islam on Friday’s (Oct. 3) episode of “Real Time With Bill Maher,” after Maher said liberals in the U.S. should band together to denounce the religion for some of its stances on human rights issues.

Affleck disagreed so vehemently with Maher’s controversial views that there was plenty of yelling in the ten-minute segment, in which journalist Nicholas Kristof and Affleck debated Maher and author Sam Harris.

“Are you the person who officially understands the codified doctrine of Islam,” asks Affleck, while Maher defends his views, saying, “It’s the only religion that acts like the mafia — that will f***ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.”

Watch the debate below.
