More Steve Harvey Hate Speech Against Atheists in Larry King Interview with Joy Behar

Did he really just say he 'doesn't know what an Atheist is' but continues to talk negatively about them? Let's replace the word 'Atheist' with 'African American' and see how that sounds...

There hasn't been a backlash against him, in my opinion, because atheists are still the one group that "people" (and i use the term loosely when describing Mr. Harvey) feel they can still beat up on because its not socially acceptable. I find it funny that those who had no civil rights up until a half century ago are usually the most outspoken about denying rights to others. I know that has nothing to do with the idiocy that spews from this person's mouth, but its my own little tangent.

Maybe there are people like me who have no idea who the hell he is. That would mean no need to backlash

araina, i think you've hit the nail on the head.  we don't need a backlash.  we understand that the truth of our worldview does not hinge in the mutterings of an uneducated "actor."

the only problem that i have with him is that he misrepresents our arguments, reinforcing the misconceptions of people who are watching this that are tragically underinformed.

Replace "atheist" with "Christian" and it will sound like 99% of the discussions here.

Harvey is an idiot. He has a very simple minded view of the world.

Comment by Kairan Nierde on July 20, 2011 at 3:08pm

He just walks away from people when they say they're atheist.  How disrespectful.

Wait... why are we even discussing Steve Harvey?

Comment by Dustin on July 21, 2011 at 8:43pm

At Jamie Jeffords , that simply isn't true.  The DISCUSSIONS are not like that , only a few ... and a very few ... and usually sarcastic or jokingly ... would someone say if they find out someone is a Christian , they walk away ... or that you shouldn't date a Christian.  

 

As for Harveys idiotic point about 'moral barometer' , We have rational arguments to support our claims that Christianity is void of morality.  We also don't misrepresent science by saying we evolved from MONKEYS!

and even william lane craig isn't dumb enough to say that Atheists have no moral compass ... granted , he says we receive it from God ... it's written into our hearts , but he wouldn't be so derogatory to say what Harvey said over national television.
