London: Famous comedian and English actor Ricky Gervais, who is professing atheism, said he is a better Christian than many believers.

“I am not a good Christian in the sense that I believe that Jesus was half man, half God. But I am a good Christian compared to a lot of Christians,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

“Following the teachings of Jesus doesn’t make you good. Not following him doesn’t make you bad," the star added.
