Ray Comfort Revealed

Mr. Comfort, of Atheist Central fame, has a new blog at (other examiner bloggers include psychics and ghost hunters). Considering Mr. Comfort's draconian comment policy at Atheist Central, I'm a little surprised at his new blog, which allows instant posting of any comment.

Fortunately for us, this allowed alphgeek to give me the following tip: a report from Fox News regarding donations from Will Smith. Now I love Will Smith, but Will Smith once famously said "...the ideas of the Bible are 98 percent the same ideas of Scientology, 98 percent the same ideas of Hinduism and Buddhism", which is hardly a philosophy Mr. Comfort publicly endorses. (Mr. Comfort's philosophy would be more accurately described as "if you don't believe what I believe you will burn in hell forever, asshole".) So you can see why I might find it a little odd that Mr. Comfort accepted a $200,000 donation from Mr. Smith to Living Waters, Mr. Comfort's ministry.

I would also like to share with you some of the titles of Mr. Comfort's "more than 60 books". (thank you, JimmieNineBellies)

101 Annoying Things: About Other Drivers
101 Annoying Things: About Air Travel
Overcoming Panic Attacks (written by a man who is NOT a psychiatrist, psychologist or even an LCSW
101 Things Kids Can do to Annoy Their Parents

Uh, yeah. That's something to be proud of.

Comments are for you guys, not for me. Say what you will. Don't feel compelled to stay on topic, I enjoy it when comments enter Tangentville or veer off into Non Sequitur Town. Just keep it polite, okay?

I am attempting to use blogger's new comment spam feature. If you don't immediately see your comment, it is being held in spam, I will get it out next time I check the filter. Unless you are Dennis Markuze, in which case you're never seeing your comment.
