The Hate of the Silent Witness

I saw this online today and thought that I would share.  These are the sentiments of an atheist who was approached by a loving soulwinner.  His thoughts on soulwinning trump those of the average church member these days.

“If you believe that there is a heaven and hell and people could be going to heaven or hell, or not getting eternal life, or whatever, and you think that, well, it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward, and atheists should think that people shouldn’t be proselytized, leave me alone and keep your religion to yourself…how much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize them?  How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?  I mean, if I believed beyond the shadow of a doubt that a Mack truck was coming at you and you didn’t believe it, and that truck that bearing down on you, there’s a certain point where I tackle you, and this is more important than that.”

-Penn Teller, atheist | comedian
