Gervais is a talentless ham and a hypocrite

Gervais was not funny. In fact, the rejoiners from Madonna and the like were far funnier. I guess the powers that be reined Gervais in.

Apparently Ricky was once asked if "coming out" as an atheist would damage his career. Everyone knew in the UK, if they cared,(and it may have enhanced his popularity here!:-). He said, "What am I meant to do? Lie?.."

Like many British "Christians" he has always been quite openly atheist.

Quite right Ricky! Good for you.

"..there are 2,780-odd gods. If you are a Christian, you believe in one of them and not any of the others"!!

Piers Morgan - now there is a talentless ham. A protege of the likes of Murdoch and Trump.

Science has almost eliminated superstitions, although witchcraft is still big in parts of Africa. The last big hold-out is organised religion and that type of superstition will largely go too - eventually.

I enjoy about half of what he does. He can be quite funny at times and then...

I agree with his bits on religion.

Why do you disparage Jesus with words such as Jewsus etc.
I think you're an anti-semite bob.
Very racist bob, very racist.

Jesus was Jewish. Bob just used a play on his name to point that out. It's interesting that YOU find that fact disparaging....

And if I didn't find it disparaging you'd be the first to call me an anti semite, racist, redneck, etc.
btw...Jesus was an Israelite

Is that how you rednecks reconcile the FACT that Jesus was Jewish? By saying "no, not Jewish, but an Israelite"? WTF?

Nope. Jewsus was a JEW, first and foremost.

And?

Your offense at the word "Jewsus" is 100% proof you are a stealth chrstard-- the worst kind.

Thanks!
