Ray Comfort: 180 Filmmaker ‘Felt Sickened’ by Response to Holocaust Question

By Alex Murashko

Evangelist Ray Comfort revealed that during the making of his dramatic pro-life film, “180,” he was sickened by the answers so many young people gave to a hypothetical question he asked them after describing a life and death, Holocaust-like scenario.

The 33-minute video released for free online at the beginning of the week, documents the responses of young adults to questions from Comfort about their stance on abortion, but also includes discussions on Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust in Europe.

While focusing on the responses given by several people with a pro-abortion stance, Comfort then transitions from talk about lives lost in the Holocaust to lives lost as the result of abortions in the U.S.

The hypothetical scenario Comfort described to those he interviewed for the film went like this:

It’s 1943. A German officer has a gun pointed at you. He wants you to get into a bulldozer and drive it forward. In front of the bulldozer is a pit in which there are 300 Jews who have just been shot. Some of them are still alive. He wants you to bury them alive! If you don’t do what he says, he is going to kill you and do it himself. If you do what he says, he will let you live. Would you drive it forward?

“I was surprised that so many said that they could bury another person alive. I felt sickened, but at the same time I don’t know if I believed others when they quickly said that they would take the bullet, rather than do it,” said Comfort in a recent interview made available to The Christian Post. “I guess it takes a lot of soul-searching. It certainly is a character-test for each of us.”

Comfort explained how the conversations with the people he interviewed at different outdoor Southern California locales began…
