Stephen Fry interview where actor branded God 'evil' nominated for religious broadcasting award

Post by Guest on Tue Mar 22, 2016 3:17 pm

An interview during which Stephen Fry denounced God as “evil”, “capricious”, “mean-minded” and "utterly monstrous" has been shortlisted for an award for religious broadcasting. The atheist actor and author was asked what he would say if, upon his death, he was confronted by God during an interview with Gay Byrne for RTÉ One’s The Meaning of Life in February 2015. Fry, who had recently married his partner Elliot Spencer, stunned Byrne by replying: “I’d say, bone cancer in children? What’s that about? How dare you? How dare you create a world to which there is such misery that is not our fault. It’s not right, it’s utterly, utterly evil.

“Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who creates a world that is so full of injustice and pain. That’s what I would say.”

It's not exactly original, and I don't know why people get awards just for having an opinion.

Erm no storm. Not an award. Perhaps a handbook on "how to put yourself across in the best way you can"

lol!
