Ray Comfort has decided to lie about his conversations with Dan Barker, author of the highly entertaining Losing Faith in Faith and former fundamentalist pastor. According to Ray, Dan Barker threatened him with lawyers (emphasis added).
There is one well-known atheist who has an itinerant ministry, who says that he was a Christian pastor for 17 years. That’s impressive. Judas only managed to fake it for three and a half years. This man faked it for seventeen years–in a pulpit! His name is Dan Barker. A number of years ago I emailed Dan and explained about the Judas thing. Barker bit back that if I ever contacted him again, I would hear from his lawyers.
Here’s what happened according to Dan Barker (again, emphasis added):
Actually, I found the email correspondence between me and Ray Comfort from 2001. I did NOT say he would be hearing from my lawyers. I said I would contact his provider to complain about using email for harassment. I asked him to stop emailing me, after we hit a dead-end, and he continued, after being asked not to continue.
Of course, this is just par for course with Ray Comfort who’s whole ministry depends upon the ignorance of the audience in order to be successful.
