My daughter D.D. and I visited Ray Comfort and his team on Saturday down at the Huntington Beach Pier where we encountered a bunch of evangelistic atheists.
One rather caustic man, Frank, challenged my daughter after I asked her this question in front of him: “D.D., is there a God?”
D.D. replied matter-of-factly, “Yes!”
With a smile, I pointed out to Frank that even an 8-year-old child knows that God exists.
He knelt down, and in a smooth, Satan-like tone, tried to convince her otherwise, to no avail. D.D. looked at me and would have rolled her eyes if she was wasn’t taught to be respectful to her elders, even when they are headed for Hell.
Below, read Ray Comfort’s version of events (from his blog, w/permission), as he stood on the sidelines aghast at this foolish man’s persistance.

I was at Huntington Beach just after open air preaching, when a friend showed up with his eight year-old daughter. She’s a sweet little kid with a strong faith in God. Some time later I saw him conversing with an atheist named Frank. Frank had been heckling me, and seemed to consider himself to be quite an intellectual. When my friend’s little girl told the atheist that she believed in God, Frank bent down to her and in a fatherly way told her that God was just like Santa Clause–He didn’t exist. How could he do such a thing? I was horrified. He was like a poor mentally challenged man, sticking a fork into a live power outlet. I said, “Frank, do you know what a millstone is?” (To continue reading, go to Ray’s Blog by clicking here.)
