Comedian Sarah Silverman is proudly “godless” but spends plenty of her stand-up acting addressing religion all the same.
Silverman described her lack of spirituality with HuffPost Live late last month, slamming faith in the harshest terms possible.
Religion kills, she says, not mentioning her full-throated embrace of abortion or a strain of religion today that is directly tied to thousands of deaths worldwide–radical Islam. Instead, she focused on attacking Christians for their “unacceptance.”
“I’m godless but I’m fascinated by religion … there’s a lot of beauty in religion … I also think it’s responsible for a massive amount of human deaths. I think Jesus, should he have been real, would be disgusted by a lot of the people who use his name to justify things like hatred or unacceptance.”
