An atheist position on Christian proselytism

Filed under: Christianity — Tags: , , , , — qwandor @ 1:07 pm

In this video, which I am reposting from a blog I came across, an American comedian named Penn Jillete discusses his view of Christian proselytism, following an encounter with a Christian at one of his shows. Penn seems to be fairly strongly atheist, but you may find what he has to say here surprising. Listen and see; let me know what you think.



  1. Found that really good and a bit challenging.

  3. I really like that video clip. Penn was so nice and I do like his point how much do you have to hate some to not not tell them what you think but also there is a fine line between letting someone know something and being really pushy.

    That’s the first time I have heard Penn talking out of character and I think he seems like a really nice person.

  4. I like this video clip. Penn is a big boy as what he has said about him, he also has had a Big thought as a non Christian after receiving the gift of the Bible. After hearing what he has said it reminds me that a real Christian’s good deeds glorify the LORD. I will put Penn into my prayer list and pray for him and ask God to help and touch him in His own way. May the gift of the Bible work like a seed in his heart and life.
