Actor Kevin Sorbo apologized last week for an angry rant that he wrote about African-American protesters in Ferguson, Mo.
On his Facebook page, Sorbo called the protesters “losers” and “animals” who blame “everybody else” for their personal failures in life. Earlier this year, Sorbo told Fox News how he blamed liberals in Hollywood for his lack of work.
This week, Sorbo claimed that atheists are "filled with anger and hatred," noted RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
During an appearance on the "End Times" radio show yesterday, Sorbo was promoting his new Christian film "God Is Not Dead."
In the film, Sorbo plays an stereotypical bitter atheist college professor who wants to destroy the faith of his Christian students.
According to RawStory.com, Sorbo said he based his character on the stereotype of atheists that he claimed to see in the media: "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,” said Sorbo, “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?”
However, Sorbo failed to note his own preoccupation with atheism, which he doesn't "believe in."
"I know these guys must believe in something, 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," added Sorbo.
