I have religious friends, and they’re like, ‘Well if you look, it’s proven.’ And you’re like, ‘No, it’s not proven.’ Don’t try to tell me that you can prove this stuff. Just say ‘I believe it,’ and I’m down with you. Don’t mix the two together. Because you can’t logically say, ‘We know that Jews came from Jerusalem and settled in America and turned into Native Americans.’ That just doesn’t make any sense. But at the same time, if you say ‘I believe this,’ I say ‘Okay. Cool man.’ Because at the end of the day, we all have certain beliefs and deeply held things that probably don’t make a lot of sense to anybody else.
The co-creator of South Park and the new Broadway musical hit The Book of Mormon talks religions with Terry Gross on Fresh Air. Looking forward to hearing the full interview on NPR sometime soon.
