Katt Williams Weighs In on Celebrity Religious Debate

Katt Williams Weighs In on Celebrity Religious Debate

The comedian doesn't agree with atheist Stephen Hawking

Published May 19, 2011

Comedian Katt Williams has stepped into the religious/philosophical battle between British physicist Stephen Hawking and born-again sitcom actor Kirk Cameron.


For those unaware, Hawking, who is an atheist, told a reporter for the British newspaper The Guardian that he didn’t believe in an afterlife. He believes that the brain is a computer, and when you die the computer shuts down. "There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers,” said Hawking, who suffers from a debilitating neurological illness. “That is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark." Taking offense, Cameron, a devote Christian, responded by telling E! Online: "To say anything negative about Stephen Hawking is like bullying a blind man. He has an unfair disadvantage, and that gives him a free pass on some of his absurd ideas.”


TMZ caught up with Katt Williams in L.A. and asked him his views on the debate. “If [Stephen Hawking] doesn’t believe in God, then he just another cripple guy with a bad idea.” On Cameron, the MIA comedian said, "Kirk Cameron is brilliant,” later adding, “God still runs this earth, Satan's breath still stinks."
