I found this over at Steve Wood’s blog. I’ve posted it here exactly as I found it. Do go over and pay Steve a visit. He’s got a lot of really cool material up.

This video of Penn (from Penn & Teller fame) was my surprise of the week. Here’s the money quote:

“I don’t respect people who don’t proselytize. If you believe that there’s a heaven and hell and that people could be going to hell – or not getting eternal life and you think that it’s not really worth telling them this because it would make it socially awkward . . . how much do you have to hate somebody to not proselytize? How much do you have to hate somebody to believe that everlasting life is possible and not tell them that?”

While I would prefer “evangelize” to “proselytize” I like his point.

Here’s the clip:
