Stephen Fry On God: ‘Evil, Capricious, Mean-Minded, Maniac’
Stephen Fry has called God “capricious, mean-minded, stupid” and an “utter maniac”, should he exist.
The much loved actor, comedian and well-known atheist made the comments on Irish television program ‘The Meaning of Life’ with Gay Byrne.
Stephen Fry has provoked a strong reaction to his recent comments on the notion of god, whom he said he would consider “utterly evil, capricious, mean-minded” should he exist.
When asked to outline what he would say to God upon meeting him, Fry pulled no punches…
“How dare you? how dare you create such misery in a world that it 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?”
The YouTube clip (above) has received millions of views while Stephen Fry’s tweet that contained it has received thousands of re-tweets and favourites.
