Christian actor Kevin Sorbo: Why do atheists 'get so angry at something you don't believe in'

Speaking with the Christian Post, actor Kevin Sorbo -- star of syndicated television show Hercules: The Legendary Journeys in the 90's -- said he can't understand why atheists seem to be so angry all the time.

Sorbo, who is still promoting his most recent film, God Is Not Dead, in which he plays an atheist, said he can't comprehend the logic behind atheist's lack of beliefs and their anger.

"I'm a Christian myself and had to play an atheist. I see the anger of these (atheist) guys on TV and it's like 'wow, how do you get so angry at something you don't believe in?"  Sorbo said.

Earlier this year, Sorbo discussed self-professed atheist Bill Maher, calling him “angry and lonely," before adding, "I did Politically Incorrect a couple of times, and all I can do is feel sad for the guy, because I think he is a very angry and lonely man. Comedy comes from anger anyway. You know, what are you going to say when a guy talks like this?"

In his most recent comments, Sorbo also  expressed frustration with atheists who protest localities displaying nativity scenes on public property during the Christmas holidays.

"It's funny how they can get nativity scenes pulled down because they say it offends them but they're offended by something they don't believe in," Sorbo said. "What offends 90 percent of the country is that they take down nativity scenes but apparently the majority doesn't have a voice in the country anymore so what are you going to do?"

Sorbo's latest film project, Poison Sky, is about small town residents who are angry with the government, believing it is poisoning them and modifying the weather using so-called chemtrails.
