← Maher: Media treated Haiti as ‘disaster porn’

Bill Maher has undoubtedly contributed heavily to the RDF, and his very public atheism (i.e. Religulous) has raised awareness worldwide.


Not really, no. Maher does not identify as an atheist:

"“I'm not an atheist, though, because the belief that there is no God only mirrors the certitude of religion,” he says"

If you are going to promote someone as a prominent atheist, it's a good idea to first make sure that this is what they identify as.
