Evangelist Ray Comfort is set to release his apologetic film "The Atheist Delusion" this Friday, and in an interview with Hemant Mehta of "The Friendly Atheist" blog, said that he is convinced Hell is a very real place that people are in danger of ending up in.
When asked in the interview how he would judge the success of the film, Comfort responded: "I believe with every ounce of my being that Hell is a very real place. I know that is offensive and that it almost always brings scorn with it. It was Penn Jillette who asked how much we would have to hate someone if we believed that Hell was real and didn't warn him," he said, referring to his conversation with the atheist author.
Comfort added: "So with that thought in mind, what is 'success' to me with this movie? I'm not sure that I can adequately answer that. If you were a firefighter trying to save 10 people from death and managed to save two, is that a success?" more >>

At a young age, Sean McElwee knew he wanted to be a star. So when his face appeared on a billboard at the corner of Sunset and Crescent Heights Boulevard in Los Angeles this year, he was reeling with excitement over his newfound fame.
