Robert Francis "Bobcat" Goldthwait (born May 26, 1962) is an American actor, comedian, screenwriter, and film and television director. He is commonly known for his energetic stage personality, his dark, acerbic black comedy, and his gruff but high-pitched voice.
In an April 2012 interview Bobcat Goldthwait says he is an atheist:
Interviewer: Are you a big gun fanatic?
Bobcat Goldthwait: No, I’m not Tackleberry from Police Academy. But I have a gun. That’s the thing—there’s no discussion anymore. Just because I’m a progressive or a liberal I’m not supposed to have a gun. We’re not allowed to figure out what works for people. You’re either this or you’re that. How can you be a vegetarian atheist and own a gun? Well, that’s who I am. Mostly I’m just tired of the fact that there’s no more conversation or logic or reason. It’s just an “us vs. them” mentality. And that’s what this movie is ultimately about.
