I think you're confusing my paying my respects for George from my own perception(and a bit of a sense of humor) with having an agenda, which I don't. I didn't go on a "God is great" rant or yell from the rooftops "George Carlin was wrong! Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!" I was simply paying my respects in my own manner, to which I am entitled.
Speak what you know, because this isn't it.
If you're an atheist, fine by me...I honestly don't care. Just be careful you don't get dizzy all the way up there on your high horse.

[You might want to change your screen name, as if you hit the wrong key on the right side of your board while typing, you might spell your name as "God"....wouldn't want you to have an embolism because of it]
I think you're confusing my manner of paying respect with a religious agenda, which this isn't. If you'll open your eyes and look again, I was simply stating(with humor, which I believe Mr. Carlin would have respected), my take on his passing. I wasn't standing on the rooftops yelling "Carlin was a blashpheming sinner who was wrong! Wrong!"
Speak what you know, because this isn't it.
If you're an atheist, that's fine by me...I truly don't care. I don't share your belief, but I respect it. It's funny how most atheists can't be as reciprocating in the empathy department.
Just do me a favor, and be careful: I don't want you to get dizzy, sitting so far up on your high horse.

Been watching Carlin since I was 13 (now 29). He was one of my favorite stand-ups and always made me think about the world in which I lived. That was genius of Carlin. RIP George Carlin. You will be missed in a world that is now a little less funny.

Carlin's career has always made me laugh, smile and make quote after quote after quote. He was an artist and a poster boy for those who wanted to be a legend. He could make you laugh with dirty language or with the opposite. There was a time in my life when my [past] depression almost got the best of me. There was 2 things that got me out of my rut. First was my family and second was watching Carlin's acts on tv...no lie!
First we lost Stan Winston and now George Carlin. I really hope the "urban legend" of 3 die at a time doesn't hold to be true. We need not lose anyone else.
Stan = Legend in special effects
George = Legend in comedy

I'm very sad that Carlin is gone. He seemed so invincible. He seemed like nothing could ever beat him.
I respect his views on religion. He wasn't afraid to go out and say what was on his mind.
There was one bit he did in particular on "Complains & Grievances" where he was talking about religion and how silly the Ten Commandments were and how they should be cut down to two. It was very witty, well-written, and felt like an intelligent lecture mixed with his trademark comedy style.
He summed the entire lecture up brilliantly:
"Respect the provider of thy nookie...and respect others who believe in a different invisible man than you do which also leads me to an even better alternative: KEEP THY RELIGION TO THYSELF!"
That's refreshing to hear. He didn't take sides and he respects those with different points of view even going so far as to say, "Whatever you believe in, don't go pushing your religious POV on other people because it only leads to grief."
He was funny but he was also VERY smart. That is one of the reasons I respected George Carlin so much. He had such timing and wit and his comedy, as much as it was observational was intelligently observational and thoughtful.
His take on the 7 Dirty Words is just ONE reason why he should be remembered. Anybody else could have gone up there and used those words and acted like an *** but George Carlin turned his stage into a pulpit and the concert hall into a classroom and he TAUGHT as much as he made people laugh.
I will miss him VERY much. I'm VERY sad he's gone and it's going to be a shame not to see any HBO specials or hear any new material from him.

Wow! I came late to this...This sucks huge a$$. I am so bummed out right now. He probably wouldn't want us to miss him though (if you believe his last HBO comedy show). He would probably be thinking, "Good riddance you rotten prick, one less bastard ruining my planet." I will miss him and the world will never be the same. Thanks for the laughs you old a$$hole.

Goodbye, George. Your comedy gave me hope and joy during the
sad moments of my life. In my heart, your humor will always be alive and
well. R.I.P. George Carlin

The smartest person ever put on this planet. Farwell!

One of the greats, that goes without saying of course. Noone these days can hold a candle to the ones we have lost recently. Leary in his heyday and Lewis Black are the only ways who can even make me laugh, but Pryor, Carlin, Dangerfield actually made you think more about what they were trying to say.
