Atheism would be Comic, were it not such a Horror

Ricky Gervais, a huge celebrity comedian has made comments which are reminiscent of the man he parodies in the above clip. The Dail Mail reports that...

Gervais, 48, said there were ‘too many unwanted children, too many people who are poor and struggling’.

He added: ‘If they all had a good quality of life, no one would complain. What there is, is too many useless people. Too many people who shouldn’t have children.’

Asked whether there should be a limitation then, he told the Sunday Times: ‘Yes, based on… stupid, fat faces. If there’s a woman in leggings, eating chips with a fag
in her mouth, sterilise her.’

It was suggested that Gervais, who grew up on a council estate in Reading, was calling for ‘chavs’ to be sterilised.

But he insisted his views were not based purely on class.

‘I described an irresponsible parent. Chavs could be included in irresponsible though.’

He says he and his girlfriend of 27 years, Jane Fallon, 48, had discussed having children but decided against starting a family.

‘Too much hassle,’ he said.

Sometimes, Ricky, art imitates life. Sometimes your art imitates your life. Gervais is yet another outspoken, high profile atheist. Wherever atheism takes root, eugenics is the fruit. Atheists, 'humanists', for all of their grandiose statements on the supposed evils of religion, eventually, ride roughshod over those they deem 'unfit' or unworthy of respect or dignity. They eventually compromise with, and then embrace fully, the very evils which they outwardly opposed and create a new tyranny devoid of true justice or mercy. The first to feel its fire and fury, but by no means the last, are the poor.

Gervais is one of those comedians constantly lauded in the media but disappointing in performance.

An excellent post! I've been hovering in your blog for quite a while now. Why the hell aren't you writing a column in the Catholic Herald?
