An Atheist Explains

This brought a smile to my face Penn Jillette, an atheist, explaing the faith to Piers Morgan a "liberal catholic".
thanks Sancte Pater

I had this on my blog bit ago. It is great. What fun for an atheist to show up a lukewarm Catholic.

Rachel M. Gohlman said...

wow, Piers Morgan is very stupid.

Pablo the Mexican said...

In scripture it speaks of the Eagles.

Penn is speaking as an Eagle.

In a sermon here:

is contained why Penn has this ability to 'sense' God.

Penn is feasting on the Body of Christ.

Stunning. :-)

Pablo the Mexican said...

", Piers Morgan is very stupid..."

He is a Fruit of the 'Springtime'.

ACF, Piers Morgan has always been very stupid. That's why he appeals to so many people who don't want the bother of exercising their brains. A common problem.

I think it just goes to show that Atheists are truly Lost Souls and don't really know what the believe

“liberal catholics”

Popes in the last fifty years have tolerated “liberal catholic” views presumably in the hope of avoiding another major fracture as happened in the last Reformation. Maybe as Benedict XVI has said, we might for a second time in 500 years, have to accept a smaller Church.

It is difficult to see how such “liberals” can be kept on board?

Penn Jilette knows Catholic teaching far better than Piers Morgan. Piers Morgan should take a few lessons from him. It certainly appears to me that this man Piers Morgan is what is known as a CINO.
I think of the parable of the seed which the sower sowed. Some fell by the wayside, some fell on rough ground, some fell among thorns, some fell among fertile soil etc., etc.. I also think about the words of Jesus that he would like us to be hot or cold but the lukewarm he would vomit out of his mouth.

It would appear it is not only Morgan who is stupid but all those people at every level of the Roman Catholic Church who through their iilljudged statements have been trying clearly to uphold Protestantism. This in the full knowledge of the collapse of Protestant culture and belief which is driving it further and further away from Christ to its ultimate goal of a Homocentric ideology.
Dona nobis pacem

Yes Piers Von Morgan 1939. The Catholic Church is NOT very modern in opposing Communisn and Nazism. It is sooooo outdated. I mean what is wrong with hating and knowning Jews are inferior? Its the latest science... How dare they say the works of art I have and nice house... confiscated from Jews isn't mine. I mean the Jews caused WWI and the depression. Those Jewish bankers rule the world. How can the Catholic Church let good Germans or Europeans die because of Jews.
Piers Morgan wants the Church to agree with his vices. I guess I should not use electricity. Jesus didnt mention that. Why not gas Jews... Jesus didnt say that was wrong. Hey he did'nt mention aeroplanes... why not throw people from planes? What is wrong with that? I don't need the Church to tell me how to live!

"But now you're talking Martin Luther"


I can see Piers Morgan in the parable of Lazarus and the rich man:

And he said, `No, father Abraham; but if some one goes to Piers from the dead, he will repent.'
He said to him, `If he does not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will he be convinced if an atheist demonstrates he knows more about Catholicism than him.'

Very good - even having given an allowance for the fact that Morgan is a half-wit , this captures pretty well the 'cult' of Piers !!

GOR said...

Yes, that was instructive...and sad. When an atheist can better expound the Catholic faith than a Catholic, it makes you wonder.

I would say that Penn is "not far from the Catholic Faith..."

Piers Morgan, on the other hand...?

Piers Morgan exemplifies the average Catholic devoid of understanding of their own true faith. I generally find discussions with this type of Catholic a real pain as they set themselves up as Pope or disconnect their brain and allow their emotion to rule. I expect a Buddhist to be Buddhist, a Hindu to be Hindu and a Catholic to be Catholic. If you don't like it then the door opens both ways and go where you believe you will be happy. Let Catholics be Catholic. Is it too much to ask? Apparently so.

Penn Jillette - you are da man! What a guy!

Lepanto said...

Morgan quite recently and seriously suggested that the Scriptures should be changed so that any references to homosexuality as sinful be edited out. His idea is that if the constitution of the US became offensive to modern thought, it would be amended so why not the Scriptures. This outrageous suggestion received very little notice in the UK for some reason.
