Tuesday two comedians, believer John Fugelsang and atheist Jamie Kilstein, debated the existence of God (or lack thereof) with late-night talk show host W. Kamau Bell. Fuselsang whose mother was an ex nun said, “I think a lot of times the mistake we make is confusing God and religion, and thinking they are the same thing. You look at the character of Jesus, and he scares the hell out the conservatives even today. If Jesus came back today, you wouldn’t be able to hear him talk over Christians calling him a socialist,” Fugelsang added. “He was a peaceful, radical, non-violent revolutionary, hung out with lepers and crooks, never spoke English, wasn’t an American citizen, anti-wealth, ant-death penalty, anti-public prayer… never anti-gay, never anti-abortion, never anti-premarital sex, long-haired, brown-skinned — that’s in Revelation, Kirk Cameron — brown-skinned, homeless, Middle Eastern Jew.”
“If that guy was real, I would totally hang out with him,” Kilstein joked.
