Gervais goes ‘nearest the knuckle’ on faith

When Ricky Gervais signed off from his caustic performance at the recent Golden Globe Awards, God was among those he thanked.  

” Thank you to God for making me an atheist,” the comedian quipped. 

On his new CNN show, Piers Morgan challenged his fellow Brit on the comment – arguing that the joke was “nearest the knuckle” for Americans who hold faith dear. 

Check out the conversation that followed between Morgan (a self-professed Catholic) and Gervais (a self-professed atheist).
