Female Atheists: Don’t Attack Mark Wahlberg

He doesn’t like it.

The actor was promoting a movie on the show when a screaming fan ran towards Wahlberg and had to be pulled off him by security guards — and the star fears her intentions might not have been altogether good.

He explains, “The only thing that was a bit disturbing was she had a pin (badge) on that said ‘God is not real’ and that was upsetting to me. But I still pray for her to this day. Hopefully she’s changed her mind.”

I, on the other hand, am completely fine with screaming female atheist fans and their “intentions.”

Now someone please explain to me how Wahlberg’s strong faith is reconciled with starring in Boogie Nights and posing almost entirely nude on a billboard.

    Simple… He’s Catholic!

    He can do whatever he wants so long as he later asks for forgiveness!

    Who cares about anything but that body?

    Spank me, Catholic boy……

    That’s pretty much how I feel about religious people.

    Maybe she was the victim of one of his crime-sprees. Did anyone else see his racist, violent past on the Wiki link?

  • Sudo

    Why not criticize him for living in sin with his common law wife and bearing children out of wedlock while we’re at it. Oh, and let’s not forget the tattoos!

    Four years later and he’s still rattled? The only disturbing thing was the pin? So he would have been thrilled to pieces to be mauled by a fan if she’d been wearing a “Jesus Loves me!” badge instead?

    Strange, strange man.

    Now someone please explain to me how Wahlberg’s strong faith is reconciled with starring in Boogie Nights and posing almost entirely nude on a billboard.

    Because religious people can only be conservative about sex?

    Cmon, Hemant. You’ve been very… petty lately. This isn’t becoming.

  • Pseudonym

    Yeah, I agree with Drew. Mark Wahlberg is living proof that it’s possible. How about explaining how startting in Boogie Nights is incompatible with a strong faith?

    If all Catholics were as hot as Walberg, they wouldn’t bother me so much.

    Have you guys seen Wahlberg’s reaction to Andy Samberg’s imitation of him on SNL a few weeks ago?

    Wahlberg responds to Samberg’s impersonation

    Samberg nailed him I thought:) (his voice/speech patterns at least) They show a clip in the above interview (the sketch itself was rather flimsy, but it’s SNL)

    Wahlberg has absolutely no sense of humour about himself. Always a bad sign.

    Simple, he just follows the Capitalist Christian’s creed:

    Do what Jesus would do (unless there’s money involved).

  • T’s Grammy

    All right, I won’t. God, that was an easy thing to comply with since I’ve utterly no desire to. Sorry. I just don’t see it.

    Because it’s his job and being good at your job brings glory to God? If only Christian pharmacists could follow this example when they have to fill birth control prescriptions.

    Tarrkid,

    You’re almost completely right about that.

    Actually there is 1 thing that Christians can’t be forgiven for.

    The 1 unforgivable sin is denial of the holy spirit.  This movie
    The God Who Wasn’t There is the best one I’ve found to show this:

    This movie called The Empty Cross is the best followup movie after TGWWT:

    http://www.youtube.com/ReligionDies#p/c/EFAA04901E7AE573/0/CB4zYq4DmLo

    So, since christians can do practically anything they want and actually believe
    that there imaginary friend will forgive them for it is one of the main reasons
    this nation ( USA ) and the rest of the world is so messed up. This kind of
    “moral” road map sets the stage for certain disaster to take place.

    A really good movie that was just released to demonstrate this is called The Ledge. Any Liv Tyler fans out there? If so, you won’t want to miss this must see movie:

    Also, be sure not to miss these other youtube channels for
    what should obviously be the stronger side of the argument:

    Read
    it how it’s meat to be read. Learn the flaws, forgeries, contradictions
    and absurdities first! Then you won’t be able to take it seriously and
    easily laugh in the face of it’s evil.
