First of all let me explain my concept and thinking about religion and being religious 
Religion is man made and being religious is the one who follows certain principles and doctrines of a particular religion.

Christianity is not a religion at all. It is a relationship between God and man. When God created man,He wanted to have a relationship,an everlasting relationship. Once Adam and Eve committed sin,they 
lost that relationship. But God had a plan to restore the relationship. For that He sent His begotten Son to this world not to perish but to have everlasting life(Jn3:17)

Religion is man made for his survival in this world.In fact this is devil's work to create hatred among men.
Faith is a free gift from God. It has no relationship with man made religion or being religious 

Religion is main cause of destruction of this world. Religion is man made but faith is God made. Faith is always God's work in you. Our believing has eternal meaning.Faith is something that transfers to you through the grace of God

Once you have faith in God religion or being religious have no place to play in you. The faith is to love God love people and serve the world.

There's a prayer that addresses this question, "Lord, please save us from religion". 

Over a long period of time the Sanhedrin amalgamated the Mosaic Law, to the point where Jesus would look strait at them and say "in your Law, does it not say"...... 

The Divine was not separating itself from the Law given to Moses, but from their reprobation and additions to it. 'Religulous' is not a word, it is black humor and a sadistic means of calling all religion ridiculous. Bill Maher's talk show, in my opinion, is offensive and ridiculous.
