Ted Turner

Quoted in February, 1990 Confident Living, p. 36.

Cable television's Ted Turner, who has condemned abortion foes as "bozos" who "look like idiots," recently lashed out at Christianity. "Christianity is a religion of losers," Turner told the Dallas Morning News. Referring to Christ's death on the cross, Turner said, "I don't want anybody to die for me. I've had a few drinks and a few girlfriends, and if that's gonna put me in hell, then so be it."

Turner also told a group of broadcasters, "Your delegates to the United Nations are not as important as the people [broadcasters] in this room. We are the ones who determine what the people's attitudes are. It's in our hands."
