Jesse Galef, now with a Pope-tage.

by

Jesse Galef does a lovely job in an interview with CNN, but Emily and I noticed a couple of oddities:

Opening: “Just to be clear, you’re an atheist.” Subtext supplied by Emily: Because otherwise you look like such a nice young man.

Also, notice at 2:51 – 3:04 while Jesse is talking about secularists doing good works and playing games while eating pizza… there is a montage of the pope. Why? Wait… they shift to the pope just as Jesse says “You can be a good person without believing in god.”

My theory? It is a subtle protest: Yeah, but hey… look at that hat.

Thank you, Hemant.
