Kevin Sorbo: Atheists are angry because they secretly know God exists and is judging them

Published

God Is Not Dead actor Kevin Sorbo provided one answer to the question he has been asking repeatedly on the film’s DVD promotional tour — “Why are atheists so angry at something they don’t believe in?” — on Christian radio host Rick Wiles’ show Tuesday.

Atheists, he claimed, secretly believe that God exists, and are upset with him because they know he is going to judge them. They are a “small group of people, and they get on Fox or CNN and they rant and they rave,” Sorbo said, “and I pretty much based my character [in God Is Not Dead] off of these guys that I see who are just angry — they’re just filled with anger and hatred.”

“On the one hand,” he continued, “I feel sorry for them, but then I kind of laugh at them. Why would anybody spend so much time ranting and raving about something they don’t believe in?”

After a brief digression about how “the chipping away of religion” has “brought the country down,” Sorbo claimed that “85 or 90 percent of the people in this country” believe in God, and that they’re offended when atheists use the courts to compel Christians to respect the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause.

At this point, host Rick Wiles chimed in, saying “I don’t believe in the Tooth Fairy, but I don’t spend all my time stopping people from believing in the Tooth Fairy. If they don’t believe God exists, why are they spending all this time and money if God doesn’t exist. The truth is, [atheists] know he exists and they hate him. That’s what it’s all about.”

“I know these guys must believe in something,” Sorbo replied, “otherwise they wouldn’t get so angry about it and they don’t like the fact that there is a higher power out there that is judging how they live their life.”

Last week, Sorbo was forced to apologize for a Facebook post in which he characterized African-American protesters in Ferguson, Missouri as “losers” and “animals” who blame “The Man” and “everybody else” for their own failure.
