“How much do you have to hate people to not proselytize.”
The Anchoress has a moving video of Penn Jillette encounter with a fan who gave him a bible. I also really liked what The Anchoress had to say in relation to this.
I remember Penn Jillette’s tirade against Blessed Mother Teresa which he has in common with fellow atheist Christopher Hitchens. Though Jillette seems like a much more honest atheist than Hitchens. So please send some prayers his way. Speaking as an ex-atheist I love the joy of truth and that truth was also born unto us.
On a side note I remember back in the early 90’s when Jillette was a columnist for PC/Computing magazine. He did one classic prank which I took advantage of. A fellow Chief who I had been working with at the time had just bought a new 386 computer and he was bragging about the price he got. I told him there was a better sale going on and have him a 1-800 number. Jillette had sat up and paid for the line and on the other end was a recording that sounded like a pitch from a computer business giving the specs on a great computer for the time at an extremely low price. The recording ends though berating the caller for believing such a amazing deal. It was a pretty cool prank.
