These faces will be familiar to millions on our TV screens, but how many realize their hidden agenda to destroy faith? How many believers watch their programmes and challenge them when they mock the Christian faith?
We can find their addresses on their Websites and then write to them.
In recent months we have witnessed something of the vindictive nature of atheism. The media have picked up on the fact the some popular comedians are targeting Christianity in their humour. A recent interview with Jimmy Carr on RTV highlighted this and you can see our response to him sent by Stephen.
We have sent Free Books to Stephen Fry, Ricky Gervais, Ed Byrne, and Dara O’Brianin.
We are not attacking comedians as such, we recognize that humour can be stress releasing and is part of human nature..
Please join us with your prayers that these books will be a challenge to the comedians.
Below a letter we sent to Jimmy Carr
I am writing to you concerning your views on God and religion. But, firstly may I say that I am a fan of some of your work, and to say thank you for sharing your gift as a comedian. I think many people, including myself, really benefit in terms of laughter, enjoyment and in reducing stress from watching people like you! So thank you for this!
In a recent interview that you did on an Irish talk show, I have to say that I was a little bit surprised by your quite frank mocking of the existence of God and that you seemed to base this, at least partially, on the work of Richard Dawkins.
This made me wonder if you had really examined the evidence concerning the existence of God and Jesus Christ.
Enclosed are two complimentary books that may give you a different perspective on these issues. One is by John C. Lennox who is Professor of Mathematics at the and the other is John F. Ashton, who is an adjunct professor of bio-medical sciences and applied sciences in Melbourne, Australia.
All the best,
Stephen leading a Seminar on Biblical evangelism
