The First Fictional Atheist Action Hero
So I don't know if any of you watch the show Dexter on Showtime, but I highly recommend it. Dexter is a head of blood spatter analysis in the Miami Metro PD. Basically any killers/murders who "get away" with their acts are tracked down and meticulously murdered by Dexter. He is the protagonist, and one of the most liked characters on any show right now (That is, anyone who watches the show loves the character). He's also undoubtedly agnostic and probably atheist. He subtly talks about his religious beliefs in certain monologues that I haven't been able to track down, but distinctly remember. One that I was able to locate:
"If I believed in God - If I believed in sin - this is the place where I'd be sucked straight to Hell... if I believed in Hell."
I just think it's funny and pretty awesome that Dexter Morgan (Played by Michael C. Hall: Best Actor in this years Golden Globes for a TV Drama) is loved by the general public and is an atheist.
First time this has happened?
