HBO talk show host Bill Maher said in a Monday interview with the "Daily Show's" Jon Stewart that he does not find President Barack Obama's Christian faith to be genuine, arguing that he is really an atheist, and mocked former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's recent comments that the Bible is her biggest influence.
"You know who's a liar about this, is Obama," Maher said about the president's religion.

Zach Dasher, who's running for Congress to represent Louisiana's 5th District in the House, said his famous "Duck Dynasty" family members are going to be a big part of his campaign as he runs on a "platform that begins with God."
"The support of the family means a lot to me. We share a very similar background and philosophy, and our spiritual beliefs are the same as well. They're going to be a big part of the campaign. I'm going to have Phil as my PR director, since he's so good with the media, and Si as my strategic consultant. I'm still working out the details," said Dasher, who's first cousin to Willie Robertson and nephew of Duck Commander family patriarch Phil Robertson.
Dasher's fellow Republican political opponents include Harris Brown, a businessman from Monroe, and Ed Tarpley, former district attorney for Grant Parish. Each candidate is vying for the seat vacated by Rep. Vance McAllister, who announced earlier this year that he would be stepping down from his political position after he was caught on camera kissing one of his staff members. more >>

"It's far past time that we had an honest conversation around the lack of honest portrayals of women's lives in film and media."
