Penn Jillette respects Christians

(The language in this post is cleaned up for your comfort. The language in the link is not.)

Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller, when interviewed by Reason.com about his television show “BS,” explained why he doesn’t try to debunk Scientology or Islam but acknowledged that he does go after Christians:

You do go after Christians, though … Teller and I have been brutal to Christians, and their response shows that they’re good (expletive) Americans who believe in freedom of speech. We attack them all the time, and we still get letters that say, “We appreciate your passion. Sincerely yours, in Christ.” Christians come to our show at the Rio and give us Bibles all the time. They’re incredibly kind to us. Sure, there are a couple of them who live in garages, give themselves titles and send out death threats to me and Bill Maher and Trey Parker. But the vast majority are polite, open-minded people, and I respect them for that.

Thanks, Penn.
