Gervais goes 'nearest the knuckle' on faith

When Ricky Gervais signed off from his caustic performance at the recent Golden Globe Awards, God was among those he thanked.

On his new CNN show, Piers Morgan challenged his fellow Brit on the comment - arguing that the joke was "nearest the knuckle" for Americans who hold faith dear. 

Check out the conversation that followed between Morgan (a self-professed Catholic) and Gervais (a self-professed atheist).

Two cuts of the interview:
