THE NEW ZEALAND HERALD

Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 08.16.10says that

one Mr Stephen Fry is “addressing his battle with mental health”.  I know very little of SF Esq. and I really do not give a hoot beyond the natural goodwill I extend to all human beings (unless they show themselves as undeserving of it).

BUT I DO THINK

he must be quite insane to make the comments he did against God … in Ireland of all places. Doubleplus ungood: Steve, ol’ fruit, not very clever at all—

Asked what he would say if he was confronted by God, Fry replied: “How dare you create a world in which there is such misery that is not our fault. It’s not right.

“It’s utterly, utterly evil.

“Why should I respect a capricious, mean-minded, stupid God who creates a world which is so full of injustice and pain?”

—but wait, it gets more better/worse—

“I would say, “Bone cancer in children? What’s that about?”

‘Because the God who created this universe, if it was created by God, is quite clearly a maniac, utter maniac.

“Totally selfish. We have to spend our life on our knees thanking him? What kind of God would do that?”

—but there’s nothing new here. Anyone with half of one third of three eighths of one fifth of five minibits of foxtrot alpha of common* sense has said it—and not been charged with blasphemy and a potential fine of 25 thousand Euros. As they say in real estate: location, location, location.

THE CLEVER THING

pcthat Steve did was not go to Mecca (or any other location where the most merciful and most compassionate God rules) and say the same thing. Brrrrr … then he really would know what it’s like to lose your head over a throwaway remark.

IT’S POSSIBLY

a good thing for him that he has a history of mental health problems, no? Even clever people can goof—but at least the rest of us can learn from his example: just because people look like us, talk our language (sort of) and seem like us … doesn’t mean they are like us. Be careful out there.
