The Atheist Who's Offended by Christians Who Don't Evangelize

by Mar 10, 2009

Penn Jillette, the guy from Penn and Teller who talks, is an outspoken atheist. But that doesn’t mean he wants Christians to be quiet. In fact, he thinks that Christians who don’t share their faith are displaying not love but hatred:

How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize? How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that? I mean, if I believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that a truck was coming at you, and you didn’t believe it, and that truck was bearing down on you, there is a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.
