Bill Maher interviews Vatican priest

I hardly remember Religulous, Bill Maher's documentary about religion, which I saw in 2008, but I do remember my favorite interviewee was a senior Vatican priest.

Kids get taught these "nice stories", but if they ever receive a more serious Catholic education they learn that they're just nice stories.  It's sort of a bait and switch.  Impress 'em with miracles, and only later, to people privileged enough to get a good education, reveal that it was just tradition and metaphor all along.
