Atheist Stephen Fry Stuns TV Host With What He'd Say If He Were 'Confronted By God'

Stephen Fry is an actor, a novelist, a comedian, a Twitter genius, an activist and the correct answer to the question, "Who is the Oscar Wilde of the 21st century?" After a candid back-and-forth with a television host, he may be able to add "provocateur" to that list.

Fry, a British renaissance man with a global following, left a television host stunned when he was asked what he would say if he were "confronted by God." In the interview with Gay Byrne for RTÉ One's The Meaning of Life, which asks prominent figures about the meaning of life, Fry said exactly how he, an atheist, would respond to a face-to-face with the almighty.

"Suppose it's all true, and you walk up to the pearly gates and are confronted by God," Byrne said. "What will Stephen Fry say to him, her, or it?"

Fry replied, "I'd say, bone cancer in children? What's that about?"
