Why Penn and Teller won’t cover Islam or Scientology on their TV show

Why Penn and Teller won’t cover Islam or Scientology on their TV show:

Las Vegas Weekly: Are there any groups you won’t go after?

Penn Jillette: We haven’t tackled Scientology because Showtime doesn’t want us to. Maybe they have deals with individual Scientologists—I’m not sure. And we haven’t tacked Islam because we have families.

LV Weekly: Meaning, you won’t attack Islam because you’re afraid it’ll attack back €¦

Penn: Right, and I think the worst thing you can say about a group in a free society is that you’re afraid to talk about it—I can’t think of anything more horrific.
