“I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize”

Penn Jillette of Penn and Teller, a self proclaimed atheist has given his thoughts on proselytizing after a Christian approached him with a Bible.  Some prophetic words from the famous illusionist.

Penn Jillette:

“I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. If you believe that there’s a heaven and hell, and people could be going to hell, and you think, ‘Well, it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward’…How much do you have to hate somebody not to proselytize?”
