Subject: [atheists-455] Sam Singleton
I liked what Lea said about the world needing more Sam Singletons.
We come to the atheist fold looking for fellowship, not judgement. Most performers are uneven in their talent and presentation, and, there are so few irreverent performers out there, aren't they
worthy our support and thanks?
Sam is certainly not a comic; he's a comedic actor, with a serious message. The character is a mechanism for delivering a plea for reason, and a ploy to skewer the inconsistencies of magical thinking.
People are sometimes disappointed when they see Sam in a pub, as they expect jokes. However, when seen in a theater with the company of an intelligent audience, the character can be moving and profound.
Can any one name one other person out there, who is carrying the atheist message to bars and clubs and theaters, and living out of a van, as itinerant actors and musicians do?
Confronting people's bigotry is certainly not a recipe to make money.
Good for you, Sam.
