Stephen Fry is my absolute, highest, favorite and most admired hero. I wait on baited breath for his every word. I gobble his slippery circumsized shlong in any way he'd like.

I admit it happily and without shame. Not enough stars in the sky for this.
Konversekid
I agree with you so wholeheartedly.

baleen

Yay

James Woods
I agree and I'm not even gay! XD

wtf japan
Normally I don't appreciate poetv's rhapsodic Steven Frycophants, but in this case their bootlicking is justified. Having seen this video, I would permit him to affectionately tussle my hair.

ztc
I wasn't gay until I saw this

happy_ending
My favorite part was that he made the distinction between the individuals who have faith and the institution of the church itself. That makes me love him even more.

James Woods
Yeah man, spot on. That is a crucial point. That smug prick in "A Universe From Nothing" could take a note from Fry's gospel. Like I said before, we're not going to help believers become thinkers by making fun of them at every chance. There is a time and a place.

Bort
Not only is it a classy point, but he also used it as ammunition in his own argument. The British have a knack for treating debate like a martial art.

Galileo was not actually tortured, though he was certainly threatened with torture. A minor nitpick since the not-torturing was contingent upon Galileo doing what the church wanted.

Xenocide
I love how they did that camera spin as he stepped up to the podium. I didn't need to know I was in store for epicness since this is Stephen Fry we're talking about, but it certainly reinforced it.
Cena_mark
Stephen Fry can diss the Catholic Church and be safe and well, but I dare him to make a similar speech about Islam.
longwinded
nice try, kid

Toenails
I dare *you* to make a similar speech about the Undertaker.

Seriously, if you are able to ever write an persuasive argument with that much emotion and clarity, then I will personally turn in my screen name and leave poeTV forever.

Randroid
FYI, the film "2012" is really about US government being overthrown by arab muslim hordes and the consequences of sharia law.

Cena_mark
I'm not disagreeing with Steven Fry. Hell, I've watched all of Jeeves and Wooster. He made some excellent points. I'm just saying that Islam is the worst religion, and its so bad that if a forum was made on Islam like this one that there would be riots and death threats guaranteed.

baleen
"I'm not disagreeing with Steven Fry. Hell, I've watched all of Jeeves and Wooster."

You are such a fucking toad.

SDAusmus
Er, have you ever listened to Christopher Hitchens talk about Islam?

longwinded
I'd just like to point out that the whole Catholics:sex;anorexics:food thing is a tremendously apt analogy

Cena_mark
Stephen Fry only hates the Catholic Church because he wasn't molested by them. Fry is gay and wants to be raped by a priest.

longwinded
shine on, cena mark, shine on

happy_ending
When he gets angry, he is brilliant.

I love how my google ads for this video says:

LAS VEGAS ABORTION!
MAKE US YOUR FIRST CHOICE!
phalsebob
The Catholic Church are a bunch of fatties. That made me snort. I also had no idea he was gay. He'll be brushed aside by too many people just for that. I need to find more of these vids.
Cena_mark
He's gay, but he's cool.

oogaBooga
Normal people would have used the word "and".

Cena_mark uses the word "but".

glasseye
"He has brown hair, but he's cool" would be about as relevant and logical as Cena's gurgling.

Cena_mark
Brown hair is not a choice, but queering is.

kamlem
The local hair salon says otherwise...

HarrietTubmanPI
For a boy who loves to watch sweaty men dance with each other, you have no room to talk poorly of gay people, Cena.

phalsebob
Cena aside, go and submit the full 5 parts gotterdamm before I get the itchin' to. Widdecombe and her shrill emasculating bark are worth 5 stars alone.

Camonk
Welcome into Stephen Fry's car of pain, Catholic church. He's your mother and he'll be taking you to school today.
memedumpster
Wont buffer. Red barred all the way, played two seconds, and then did the spinny wheel of bullshit on a seemingly loaded video.

Fuck you, God, fuck you and every fucking thing you ever thought was cool ever. If there is a heaven and I end up there for judgment, you'd better keep your scrawny neck out of arms reach, God, because NO ONE robs me of Stephen Fry and gets away with it, NO ONE. I will choke a bitch. The universe isn't big enough for me, you, and Stephen Fry, which means you don't get to stay, God. If you existed before, you better not now.
memedumpster
Woohoo, browbeating God worked! I should found a religion on it.

I only wish this had been a trial and Stephen Fry's testimony had been key in getting the church declared illegal.


Camonk
Yeah, you're pretty tough. But say that about ALLAH and see how far you get!

Wait, if Allah kicks your ass, does that mean he's the better god? This shit be CONFUSIN', y'all.

memedumpster
If only there was a way to see who the better God was without involving people as participants, like... okay, hear me out... what if there was a big square ring with stretchy ropes all around it where the Gods could go and decide who is the best and who is evil? They could... hmmmm... try and pin each other to the bottom of the ring, maybe we could have someone do some counting and have a time limit. Like if the counter person can smack the ring three times or something while one of the Gods is pinned...

So so good. If words could be delicious.

...

... these would, uh, be a cake. An awesome word cake.
Hay Belly
His analogy about Catholics and sex and anorexics and food was brilliant.
themilkshark
That's why they got wide length pews in the churches, rather than one person seats.

Robin Kestrel
Truly, truly an apt analogy. And such a burn, too, in the way he delivers it. It really is like verbal karate, as someone said above.

AmZ
Stephen in top form.
Explodotron
A well crafted argument, and when it comes to religion, that says a lot.
Syd Midnight
Man is he pissed off. I would be too if I'd had to sit and listen to Anne Widdecombe over loudspeakers.
dododge
And for anyone who's never heard of Anne Widdecombe, Louis Theroux did a show about her. Here's the intro:

the church needs to apologize, get a good spanking and go on a century-long time out
plug
C'mon, if it wasn't for the Catholic Church, we wouldn't have had such wondrous innovations, like the iron maiden and red-hot pincers. And think of the over-population of adulterous witches we'd have in the world.
Bort
Witch-burning was a Protestant obsession. The Catholic Church already has plenty to answer for; let the Calvinists answer for their own sins.

JimL2
It's jolly
godot
But meanwhile, for as long as your reverend paternity will be determined to tell these shameless lies, others will be permitted, on behalf of his English majesty, to throw back into your paternity's shitty mouth, truly the shit-pool of all shit, all the muck and shit which your damnable rottenness has vomited up, and to empty out all the sewers and privies onto your crown divested of the dignity of the priestly crown, against which no less than against the kingly crown you have determined to play the buffoon.
