    I thought civilised Western nations had grown out of such nonsense.

    Saw this story myself ... me-thinks it's the followers of the sky fairies that are utter maniacs! Religion has a lot to answer for in this world.

    I bet he is not brave enough to brand Allah an utter maniac.

    Interesting that Saint Fry believes in God - I assumed he would be intelligent enough to realise no-one knows if God exists or not.

    I think it's in reference to below.... completely agree with him.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    n the interview, Fry replied when asked what he would say if he was confronted by God: “How dare you create a world in which there is such misery that is not our fault? It’s not right.

    “It’s utterly, utterly evil.

    “Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?”

    Warming to the theme, Byrne asked Fry how he would react if he was locked outside the pearly gates, to which Fry responded: “I would say, ‘Bone cancer in children? What’s that about?’

    “Because the God who created this universe, if it was created by God, is quite clearly a maniac, utter maniac.

    “Totally selfish. We have to spend our life on our knees thanking him? What kind of God would do that?”

    That pretty much covers the subject for me, spot on , he may be an arrogant tit but he is a correct and bloody intelligent arrogant tit!

    You know Allah & Jehovah is the same supernatural sky fairy don't you?
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    Prove God exists and he's guilty of defamation.

    God impregnated a woman without her consent.

    Isn’t that worse than rape?
