I don’t think he was joking, or putting on an act, when Penn Jillette (the outspoken partner of Penn and Teller) praised the man who handed him a Gideon Bible and told him God loves him. Penn said,
He was a good man. He was sane. He looked me right in the eye.
The famous atheist said, if you believe in God, you should proselytize.
How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that? If I believed beyond a shadow of a doubt that a truck was coming at you and you didn’t believe it, and that truck was bearing down on you, there’s a certain point where I tackle you. And this is more important than that.
