My last post got a little bit of reaction both here and on Facebook. It made me think of these two fascinating videos by Penn Jillette of the Penn & Teller fame, who is admittedly a committed atheist. First, I’ll give you a quote from the first one, then I’ll post the videos. My thanks to Rob for making these available. [Language alert in the second video.]
I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. If you believe that there’s a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, ‘Well, it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward’… How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?
