Stephen Fry discussing God with Gay Byrne makes for incredible TV

The next episode of Gay Byrne's RTÉ One series The Meaning Of Life airs this Sunday, and if this clip is anything to go by, it's going to be pretty intense.

Former Late Late Show host Gay will chat to Stephen Fry about his career, his passions and his recent marriage in the full-length episode, but the most mind-blowing part has to be this short preview, in which Stephen discusses his views on religion.

When asked by Gay what he might say if he did "walk up to the pearly gates" to meet God, the openly atheist Stephen gives a powerful and beautifully worded response.

This is well worth a watch, if only for Gay's hilarious "I have NO idea what to say" face:

We'll definitely be tuning in on Sunday.
