Kevin Sorbo of the upcoming Christian film "God's Not Dead" said there is no point speaking with someone as angry as TV host Bill Maher, who recently called God a "psychotic mass murderer."
"I wonder what happened to him in his lifetime, because the atheists I have met, not all of them are angry. I've got some very good friends who are atheists and they just don't believe, they simply don't believe. We've had great debates about it and things like that," Sorbo said in an interview with Newsmax, posted Tuesday, after being asked about Maher's comments.
"There is no reason to even try to talk to a guy like that because he has so much hate." more >>
Conservative radio host Mark Levin recently engaged in a tense conversation with an atheist caller on his show, ultimately hanging up on the caller after calling him "intolerant."
On the Monday airing of "The Mark Levin Show," Levin fielded a call from an atheist who told the radio host it "drives him crazy" when conservative people, like Levin, require potential presidential candidates to have faith in God.
The two then began to argue back and forth over the topic of religious liberty in America. "Oh, I forgot, I'm not supposed to mention faith or God," Levin sarcastically said to the caller. The radio host then sought to explain why he previously said that he wants a presidential candidate who isn't afraid to express their beliefs in God. more >>
An estimated 500 people gathered at a public park in Sandpoint, Idaho, Thursday to demonstrate their support for keeping the Ten Commandments display at its present location.
One of the protestors told local media that she took issue with the possibility of the monument's removal, which was first called for in a letter sent to Sandpoint's city government by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
A Wisconsin-based atheist organization has demanded that that Governor Scott Walker remove a posting on the social media website Twitter that is religious in nature.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation stated Tuesday that they took exception to Walker's official account, including a tweet posted Sunday that simply read, "Philippians 4:13."
Conservative radio host Bryan Fischer says Bill Maher, who recently called God a "psychotic mass murderer" for drowning the world in the Great Flood, is only able to make his mocking statements because of God's gift of free will. And God is only allowing him to live so that he has a chance for repentance, Fischer argues.
"The decisions that Bill Maher is making right now to blaspheme against God, to ridicule God, to mock God, he only has the ability do that because God has given him the gift of free will. Bill Maher is using it for profane and blasphemous purposes. The only reason that Bill Maher, after a tirade like that, draws another single breath, is because God is merciful, God is compassionate, He is abundant in steadfast love and loving kindness," Fischer, director of Issue Analysis at the American Family Association, said on his radio program "Focal Point," posted on Monday.
"He (God) is waiting for Bill Maher to come to a place of repentance and He is continuing to extend to him His grace and His patience and His mercy." more >>
A prominent "Internet Evangelist" has challenged HBO comedian and social commentator Bill Maher to a debate after Maher's most recent anti-religious remarks.
Bill Keller, head of the website liveprayer.com, released a statement Monday calling Maher "gutless blasphemous coward" and demanding to debate the television personality.
"Maher, like his hero satan, is a typical gutless wonder who bravely runs his mouth when unopposed, but is a true coward when it comes to defending his blasphemous beliefs against someone who can articulate a case for the Christian faith like myself," stated Keller. more >>
