John Stewart is #8, for mocking the American Atheists who sued about the 9/11 cross.
Lots more at the link. #1 is Terence Malick for the movie "The Tree of Life":
It is indeed a strange and beautiful world. Malick, in his graceful and courageous film, reminds us that it is made stranger and more beautiful the more we open ourselves to it.
Both the closed-hearted scientism of atheist hardliners and the narrow creationism of religious fundamentalists kill our strange and beautiful world by flattening it beyond repair.
