how much do you have to hate people

Penn of Penn and Teller is an atheist. He has a very interesting response to being evangelized after a show. Penn seems to be moved more by having an encounter with a really good man who treated him with dignity and respect. We need to remember that part of the apologetic.

Penn says:

I don't respect people who don't proselytize. If you believe that there's a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, 'Well, it's not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward'... How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?

I think it was more than a good man at work. It was His Spirit.

Best years were when I was a Gideon.

Video shames me in not having as much fire in my belly as I had or should have.

signed comfortably, well maybe not, numb!
