Today we found some news about him in the Christian Post, which describes itself as “the nation’s most comprehensive Christian news website.” Their intriguing headline is Evangelist Ray Comfort to Give Away $25K in Gift Cards to Atheists at Reason Rally. We don’t see any comments feature. Here are some excerpts from their news, with bold font added by us:
New Zealand-born evangelist and creationist Ray Comfort, co-host of the “The Way of the Master” TV show, has said he will give the thousands of atheists attending the Reason Rally 2016 in Washington D.C. on June 4 $25,000 worth of Subway gift cards, alongside a copy of his book.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Comfort is crashing the event to promote his book. This reminds us of the time he was giving away copies of Darwin’s Origin of Species, augmented by his own 50-page introduction, revealing what he claims are the theory’s many flaws. We wrote about that in WorldNetDaily, Ray Comfort, and Brain Death. Okay, back to the news:
“Most atheists don’t know that there’s never been an atheist president, that no member of Congress is an atheist, that in some states it’s illegal for atheists to run for office, and that recent surveys show atheists in America are about as popular as rapists. It’s a fascinating read,” Comfort said of the book, titled Why Pigs Will Fly Before America Has an Atheist President.
The book has no Amazon listing — the first time that’s ever happened. Also, we have doubts about all of Comfort’s claims, but so what? This is fun! The Christian Post quotes Comfort:
“This is a small token of our love for atheists, and when we run out of books and gift cards we will give them millions of dollars,” he quipped, referring to the joke million-dollar bill, based on the book.
We suspect Comfort got those gift cards for free, but unlike his book, they may have some value. Let’s read on:
The Reason Rally is set to be one of the biggest ever gatherings of atheists in the U.S., with organizers expecting close to 20,000 people to attend.
They will undoubtedly be thrilled to have Comfort lurking around. The Christian Post goes on a bit more, but we’ve given you the highlights. If you plan to be in Washington D.C. on 04 June, this is your big chance to get a free copy of Comfort’s book. How can you go wrong?
