We’ve Lost a Good One…

23 June 2008

No, a great one.

George Carlin has died.

Not only was he a great comedian, but was always active in promoting freedom of speech and freedom of thought.

From George Carlin:

Religion has convinced people that there’s an invisible man…living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn’t want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.

You will be missed. Not only by us “grown-up” freethinkers, but by all the kids who watch(ed) Thomas the Tank Engine and Shiny Time Station.
