Gervais likes the idea of God. He went to Sunday School. He loved Jesus. But thanks in part to a conversation between his older brother and his mom, he is an atheist. He admits, “I wish there was a God, it’d be great. From what I’ve heard he’s brilliant.” He continues later, “If there is a God, why did he make me atheist?”
He’s not acting aggressive or rude. He’s not calling Christians stupid. I believe Gervais is being very candid and honest in his statements.
How do you respond to that question, “If there is a God, why did he make me atheist?”
