What an asshole. I'm glad he's dead. Well, he's likely smokin a turd in Hell about now, unless he repented at the last moment, as the Reaper approached him.
Be an atheist all you want, I could give a fuck. But use your 'bully pulpit' to bash God over and over and over, well...Go To Hell.
Was he funny? Creative? Fuck yes, and therein lies his crime. You don't go to a restaurant to be harangued by your server for your political beliefs or your religion, so why would you go to a 'comedy' show to see someone, no matter how articulate and funny they are, do it? And pay to get in?
If his God-bashing provided one service, it was to separate the wheat from the chaff, and everybody who laughed and clapped at his blasphemy was marked, and put on a list. I very much would not want to be on that list when my time comes.
I'm pretty sure God loves me, and puts up with my shit because I am very careful to not cross over his line. Heck, King David danced naked through the streets of his city, and killed a guy to get pussy...and by 'kill', I mean 'murdered'. And Jesus Himself came from his lineage.
Kind of an aside, here, but don't you find it a little odd that the Jews (well, most of them) who are such fanatics about genealogy and bloodlines, continue to stubbornly, hard-headedly, deny Christ?
Oh well, I'm done.
