Reaction to Religulous: I guess I don't support bashing religion

What if there was a music album in High School that really moved you. In fact, you tell people it "changed your life." Someone then asks you why or how it changed your life, and you say, "I was going through a depressing period and I don't know, it just really helped me get through it. It's really hard to explain." He then pulls out excerpts from the lyrics, points out how ridiculous he thinks they are, and then reminds you that critics universally find the album horrible. How would that make you feel? Wouldn't you be righteously offended?
That, to me, summarizes why Bill Maher's Religulous left a bad taste in my mouth.
