When "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" star Kevin Sorbo recently promoted his new Christian film, "God's Not Dead," he was not afraid to voice his opinion regarding the recent comments made by the "Real Time with Bill Maher" host. Last Friday, Bill Maher recently called God a "psychotic mass murderer" on his show.

"I wonder what happened to him in his lifetime, because the atheists I have met, not all of them are angry. I've got some very good friends who are atheists and they just don't believe, they simply don't believe. We've had great debates about it and things like that," said Sorbo to Newsmax in a recent article. "There is no reason to even try to talk to a guy like that because he has so much hate."

"The thing that's really disturbing about Noah isn't the silly, it's that it's immoral. It's about a psychotic mass murderer who gets away with it and his name is God. Genesis says God was so angry with Himself for screwing up when He made mankind so flawed that He sent the flood to kill everyone. Men, women, children, babies, what kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he's mad at," said the 58-year old comedian on the March 14 episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher."

Sorbo is a very outspoken Christian who is never ashamed of preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. The former "Andromeda" star recently spoke to BreatheCast about multiple topics including playing Prof. Radisson in the new Christian film and his viewpoint regarding Christians criticizing other Christians and misinterpreting the Bible.

"You have extremes on both sides," said Sorbo to BreatheCast. "Whack jobs on all sides, if you are truly a Christian in my mind you don't condemn people who say they're Christian, you shouldn't condemn anybody anyway. The whole idea is to love your neighbor as you love yourself, but the problem is a lot of people don't love themselves."

"God's Not Dead" was directed by Harold Cronk, and stars Kevin Sorbo, Shane Harper, Dean Cain and David A.R. White. It will be released in over 700 theaters throughout the United States. The "God's Not Dead" film debuts in movie theaters today.
