A Shout-Out to Pat Condell
I would like to draw your attention to the work of my fellow Englishman, atheist stand-up comedian Pat Condell. He has lately been posting articles and videos from his Myspace page, his website and Youtube. Although he is very funny, hilarious, in fact, I’ve been far more impressed with his content for its serious, far reaching depth and clarity.
He has a way with words far beyond mine. So often, I find him saying something that makes me think: That’s what I’ve always thought, but I could never have put it as clearly as that! For me, this is the mark of a great mind, and a great writer.
Please take a look for yourself at the work of Mr. Condell (particularly the videos), but as an example here, I’d like to show you a recent video called The United States of Jesus. It is a response to an accusation of being “anti-American”. I have included it here because I too have had that allegation levelled at me. I refer my own accusers to this video because, as always, Condell puts it better than I ever could.
