I have been a fan since day one. I recently watched an interview you gave about your faith and I was quite pleased to find out what I had guessed for a while, you consider yourself a Christian. I was sharing this with a friend
who is also a fan, he then asked the question that I will relay to you as I would be interested in knowing your take on the matter. He asked that if you are a man of faith, why are your stand up routines so vulgar? I myself have only seen the routines shown on TV so I don't know what your live shows are like. If they are vulgar as he says, would this not hurt your testimony? Would this not give reason for non-believers to scoff?
I would myself not like to be so much in the public eye and be scrutinized all the time, but as a celebrity you are being watched by many to see you trip up and give them reason to degrade Christians as hypocrites.
What say you Tool Man? How do you justify? Just curious. Confused

God smites people like crazy and the bible is super violent. Why can't its followers be?

Steady on love.
Faith and comedic appetite are not linked.
Morality is one of the prime targets for comedey.
I think a man cannot be judged on comedey as comedy is not serious.
A joke is what it is.
A joke.
I think problems occur when people take comedey seriously, it let's us laugh at who we are and our own beliefs.
This can be found across genres.
Do writers of horror movies believe murder is good or do comic book writers have vigilante tendencies?
Interesting....

Any exposure is good
Any exposure gets the ball rolling.
Any exposure rejuvenates and provides a much needed catalytic injection of dialogue.
Though I fear our vulnerability and effort has became comedy.
I think that may be good.
If our words entertain then I am contributing positively.
I fear this will not supply gallys ego with the treatment it needs.
