I’m note what I find more interesting about this article from the Baptist Press:
- That Andy RooneyÂ states he’s an atheist or
- The name of the street evangelist
As thousands of people thronged Phoenix for the Super Bowl, a small contingent of Christians spread out across the metropolitan area to share their faith in Christ. One of them had a chance to talk with Andy Rooney, the commentator whose curmudgeonly complaints wrap up the weekly “60 Minutes” program on CBS.
“I was standing on a corner and turned around and there was this little old man walking across the street,” said Tony Didlo, a member of Grace Church, a Southern Baptist congregation in Des Moines, Iowa. “I knew right away it was Andy Rooney.”
Didlo held out a Gospel tract and asked Rooney if he had received one yet.
“Yeah, I’ve got one of those,” Rooney replied, according to Didloâ€™s account of the Jan. 31 encounter.
“Sir, do you believe in God?” Didlo asked.
“No, I’m an atheist,” Rooney said. “I think it’s sad you people believe in that stuff.”
