“Gone Girl” star Ben Affleck obviously disagrees with the Bill Maher, host of “Real Time with Bill Maher”, on the subject of radical Muslims.
The actor defended Islam and found Maher’s comments to be gross and racist.
Affleck got into a heated debate over radical Muslims when the topic came up during his recent visit to “Real Time with Bill Maher”.
The actor defended Islam against the host, Bill Maher, and his guests.
Author Sam Harris said, “We can criticize Christians…but when you want to talk about the treatment of women, homosexuals and free thinkers in the Muslim world, liberals have failed us. The crucial point of confusion is we have been sold this meme of Islamaphobia – where every criticism of the doctrine of Islam gets conflated with bigotry towards Muslims as people, which is intellectually ridiculous.”
Affleck, who obviously did not share the same views, responded, “Hold on – are you the person who officially understands the codified doctrine of Islam?” “[Your characterization] is gross. It’s racist,” he slammed Harris. “It’s like saying, ‘Oh, you shifty Jew!’ ”
Harris insisted that Islam was “the motherload of bad ideas,” the actor reacted, “It’s just an ugly thing to say.”

Affleck fired back, “What is your solution? That we condemn Islam?”
It appears Ben is just as passionate about political views as he is about acting.
