An Atheist Teaches A Valuable Lesson About Evangelism

Penn Jillette is a well-known atheist who has a show, along with his friend Teller (funny you can’t call them”partners” anymore or people will think you’re gay).

Anyway, some quotes from this brief video (it’s 5:11):

I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. If you believe that there’s a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, ‘Well, it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward’…How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?

“He was a very, very, very good man.”

“That was a good man that gave me that book [the Bible].”
