HOOLYWOOD FILM STAR BEN AFFLECK DEFENDED ISLAM ON DEBATE

Ben Affleck was involved in an angry debate over religion on US TV show Real Time With Bill Maher over the weekend. 
The Argo filmmaker and star appeared on a panel discussing current affairs and became incensed when the host Bill Maher and author Sam Harris began talking about radical Islamists because he felt they were stereotyping all Muslims. 
He interrupted their conversation, asking Harris where he got his facts from, and then told them their talk was "gross" and "racist". 
Affleck said, "How about the more than a billion people who are not fanatical, who don't punish women, who just want to go to school, have some sandwiches, pray five times a day and don't do any of the things that 'all Muslims do'? You're stereotyping. 
You're taking a few bad things and you're painting the whole religion with that same brush." Harris responded that Islam is "the motherload of bad ideas" while Maher stated that the religion acts like the mafia. Affleck, who was visibly angered by the discussion, added, "We've killed more Muslims than they've killed us, by an awful lot... yet we're exempted from these things because they're not really a reflection of what we believe in... I'm specifically telling you that I disagree with what you think."
