    Robin Williams was a Christian? Man, that’s the most shocking thing about this post. Based on his comedy I would have guessed he was too cynical to claim a faith by name.

    A manifest lack of evidence of any kind of god hasn’t made you kill yourself, has it Patty?

    It is incredibly ironic for someone like Paddy, who puts himself out there as the voice of god and constantly begs for money to decry the seeking of wealth and fame as he so egregiously does His boundless avarice and egotism makes me wish I believed in a hell to send him to

    Same comment I left on a FB post about this:

    This POS lives on and on and Robin Williams is dead. There is no justice in this world.

    Expanding on that: Pat Robertson is a despicable parasite. Indeed, he’s worse than a true parasite because he (supposedly) is capable of independent thought and can choose to not be a parasite. Instead, he makes his living out of scaring and then promising help with salvation to ignorant people who can’t really afford to pay his living. Pat Robertson does nothing to make the world a better place. All he can do is spread hate and fear.

    Robin Williams was justly rewarded with money and fame for making our lives better. He made us laugh while holding up a mirror to our own ridiculousness. He used his talents to make us all a little happier and for that, I’m tremendously grateful.

    Almost as grateful as I will be when Pat Robertson finally becomes so feeble that he has to shut up. Shakespeare had it right “Nothing in his life became him like the leaving of it.”

    Ed asserts:

    . . . Williams actually was a Christian . . .

    Some modest googling resulted in no citations that Robin Williams was a Christian. Wikipedia doesn’t address his beliefs in adulthood. I did find some real dickheads exploiting Williams’ suicide to promote Christianity, e.g., Ted Baehr.

    Re Michael Heath @ #7

    It is my information that Williams was raised in the Episcopal Church. Here’s a link to a post by Hemant Mehta. It would appear that Williams considered his religious beliefs to be private and nobody’s business. We can only wish that more Christians (and Jews and Muslims) took the same tack.

    As I said when I read about this on Facebook:
    A lot more people are DEVASTATED at Robin Williams’ passing than will give a shit when Pat Robertson finally kicks the bucket.

    And to continue: The world is a lesser place without Robin Williams in it. The world will be a better place when Pat Robertson leaves it.

    @ ^ Gvlgeologist, FCD : Seconded by me. Well said and spot on.

    @10. Michael Heath : Really? How? I don’t see him even really referring to what you wrote merely elaborating on the question of Robin William’s religious beliefs. Lofgren @ #3 first noted this surprise and you also stated that youcouldn’t find any citations @ #7 then Colnago80 provided a bit of information he had. No representation of you let alone misrepresentation that I can see & no reason to be rude to someone helping inform us all here either.

    @8. colnago80 : Thanks for info & link – I too was wondering about that and don’t recall thinking of Robin Williams as ever being Christian.

    It would appear that Williams considered his religious beliefs to be private and nobody’s business. We can only wish that more Christians (and Jews and Muslims) took the same tack.

    Definitely! Spot on there.

    Willliams life belonged to Williams. As such, suicide is a human right. Williams exercised that right. What else needs discussing?

    Well, a whole bunch of topics. Mr. Williams exercised one of his rights; but that in no way results in topics related to his suicide being out of bounds. Humanity advances when it credibly scrutinizes behavior and adapts based on what we learn through such consideration.

    More speech, not less.
