"The whole problem with this idea of obscenity and indecency, and all of these things bad language and whatever it's all caused by one basic thing, and that is: religious superstition."
Carlin is an atheist, I believe. He has very strong feelings against religion, and from this follows his entire philosophy. I guess one could say his belief-system is simply reactionary.

Carlin is so sixties. I saw him not long ago on a DVD rental in a concert special and was surprised how little his act has changed in 35 years. The same old four letter words designed to shock, the same old tired establishment targets the same old faux humanism. I was surprised he didn't launch into some Nixon jokes, he was that dated.
I watched about 40 minutes and gave up. As they say, "move along folks, nothin' to see here".
