good advertising. i'm sold
Actually, he has words for people who want to restrict free speech, IDIOT!
Actually, specifically APE GOD's fat mom.
I murdered my mother during the crusades.
Thank you for remembering to capitalize my name. That is the proper form.
You see a guy ask a question like that and you have to wonder what exactly he was hoping to accomplish. Did he walk up there and think, "I'll talk about Jesus and then Philip Pullman will land a verbal uppercut on me and it'll be awesome on YouTube."
Because that's what happened.

Fuck yeah. FUCK YEAH.
The man has very good points, but unfortunately it means Ann Coulter and Glenn Beck are entitled to spread their BS as well.
William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!
Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?
William Roper: Yes, I'd cut down every law in England to do that!
Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!
Sir Thomas More also said this about William Tyndale, whose crime was creating most of the New Testament translation in the KJV:
"and for heretics, as they be, the clergy doth denounce them; and, as they be well worthy, the temporality doth burn them; and after the fire of Smithfield hell doth receive them, where the wretches burn forever."
More was not the character from Man From All Seasons.
That he burned many people alive just makes him all the more badass in my eyes.
Five stars for the website address.
This guy is fucking tired of this shit. After all the crap he went through with His Dark Materials, he's basically stopped being polite and is now just "fuck this shit" whenever people try to get all religious with him.
Isn't this the guy who wrote The Golden Compass?
God that made a terrible movie.
If only his books were this concise...
"Mr. Pullman, isn't the title of your book kinda douchey and provocative for provocations sake?"
"STOP TRYING TO CENSOR ME, BITCH."
Also His Dark Materials sucked.

I can't hear the second half of the guy's question. Anybody with better ears than mine want to write a quick transcription?
