What Celebrity Dad Would Rather His Child Die Than "Lie"?

By Whit Honea |

religion-parentingStrollerderby ran a piece about a celebrity dad with some very interesting convictions.  What famous(ish) father said that he’d rather watch his child die than deny her religious teachings?  Die at gunpoint, mind you.

Here’s what he said:

(The actor) described a hypothetical situation wherein he and his family were on a public bus and someone with a machine gun came in and told his daughter to say that Jesus wasn’t real.  “If she turned to me,” the actor explained, “and said, ‘What do I do?’, I’d say, ‘What have I taught you to do?’”  He then went on to describe the results: “She’d say, ‘Jesus absolutely exists’, and I’d see her in heaven.”

I’m a little curious how someone gets into a conversation about a hypothetical situation like this and why – just thinking such things is disturbing enough.  I guess that’s why he gets the big bucks. Also, celebrities on a public bus? Really?
