Comedian Ricky Gervais appeared on “Piers Morgan Tonight” to talk about his “controversial” stint hosting the Golden Globes.
Of course, atheism came up in conversation.
Gervais says that religious people shouldn’t be offended at his recent pro-atheismtalk. After all, he doesn’t get offended when they thank a god in their acceptance speeches.
Gervais added that religious people “haven’t got the monopoly on good.”
This is why it’s a boon to have strong spokespeople for our outlook. Gervais just appears calm, sincere, and certainly not anti-religious. He’s just stating the facts as he sees them and he sounds like he genuinely can’t understand what all the uproar is about. Though, smart as he is, he has to have an idea…
Meanwhile, he can crack all the religion jokes he wants. The media can’t stop talking about them, and each one just gets more attention than the last.
