Ray Comfort thought that ‘bibliophile’ meant what?

ray comfort…a cross between pedophile and Bible.   Yup, this is the man who will topple a well evidenced scientific theory that happens to cornerstone of modern biology.

    OUCH! That had to sting.

    On the one hand, he’s incredibly ignorant, but give him credit: he did apologize graciously. Sure, he did it with a bit of snark toward atheists, but considering how much spleen we have vented his way (even though the spleen is justified), I can even understand the snark.

      I’ll be more impressed when apologizes for promoting ignorance and falsehoods

    Almost makes me wish I could meet him and his film crew on one of those street corner things he has done in the past. I’d love to ask him about bananas, crocoducks, and bibliophiles. “Some kind of atheist insult,” oh my word.

    At the least it would waste his time. Maybe provide entertainment to some passers-by.

    In other news, Kirk Cameron thinks a “biblicist”,/i> is some sort of public relations person…for God.

    Give the man a banana.

    Comfort, the (mentally) afflicted. Should we afflict Comfort?

    Comfort clearly isn’t a bibliophile if he’s that ignorant of the word, and he’s proud of it. This isn’t the first time such ignorance and stupidity has been willingly displayed, and we can be sure it won’t be the last.


    See also: firings at the University of Wisconsin in 1997 and Washington DC in 1999 after use of a synonym for “miserly”.

      The synonym for miserly that’s easily mistaken for a racial epithet?

      That one?

      Yeah. No.

    I wonder what he thinks bibliophobia is.

    If he gets upset with the world “bibliophile,” perhaps we could suggest he’s engaged in pedagogy?

    I always knew he was an idiot but wow…just wow.
