Stephen Fry is a well-known cultural character and perhaps one of the most outspoken and eloquent social commentators. He was born in London, England in the 1950’s where he lived with his Jewish mother. Not only is Fry quite the popular mind, but I dare call him an unrivaled actor. He is my role model. The reason why I am talking about Fry today is because a lot of his thoughts and ideas are important for humanity to hear. Perhaps his most pedestaled arguments are the ones against homophobia and mono-theistic religions. According to («Stephen Fry», 2011, hollowverse.com/stephen-fry), Stephen Fry is sympathetic towards polytheistic religions like the beliefs of ancient Greece. Apparently he reckons that they make a more realistic painting of humanity and our world because most gods show malice and are simply unpleasant. Perhaps one of the biggest reasons why he is so anti-theistic is because of his past with the Catholic Church. He said in one of his most famous debates against Catholicism (with also famous social commentator Christopher Hitchens) that the Catholic Church had shut him out due to Fry’s homosexuality. His will-sprung fire to demolish homophobia and build equality around homosexuals really is no more than expected.
