Celebrity Quotes against God,Christianity and Religion

Brad Pitt
"I didn't understand this idea of a God who says, 'You have to acknowledge me. You have to say that I'm the best, and then I'll give you eternal happiness. If you won't, then you don't get it!' It seemed to be about ego. I can't see God operating from ego, so it made no sense to me.Source:US Magazine

When I got untethered from the comfort of religion, it wasn't a loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self," he says. "I had faith that I'm capable enough to handle any situation. There's peace in understanding that I have only one life, here and now, and I'm responsible."(Parade magazine Oct 2,2007)

Tupac Shakur

I think some cool motherfucker sat down a long time ago and said let’s figure out a way to control motherfuckers. That’s what they came up with-the bible.  Streetgangs.com

(Quoted on Hollowverse)
George Clooney:
"I don't believe in Heaven and Hell," he says. "I don't know if I believe in God. All I know is that as an individual, I won't allow this life -- the only thing I know to exist -- to be wasted." (Washington Post,September 28, 1997 )

Bruce Willis:
Organized religions in general, in my opinion, are dying forms," he says. "They were all very important when we didn't know why the sun moved, why weather changed, why hurricanes occurred, or volcanoes happened," he continues. "Modern religion is the end trail of modern mythology. But there are people who interpret the Bible literally. Literally!" he says incredulously. "I choose not to believe that's the way. And that's what makes America cool, you know?" July 1998 issue of George magazine.

Meryl streep.
-So I've always been really, deeply interested, because I think I can understand the solace that's available in the whole construct of religion. But I really don't believe in the power of prayer, or things would have been avoided that have happened, that are awful. So it's a horrible position as an intelligent, emotional, yearning human being to sit outside of the available comfort there. But I just can't go there.' So where does she draw consolation in the face of ageing and death? 'Consolation? I'm not sure I have it. I have a belief, I guess, in the power of the aggregate human attempt – the best of ourselves. In love and hope and optimism – you know, the magic things that seem inexplicable. Why we are the way we are. I do have a sense of trying to make things better. Where does that come from?' She laughs. 'And why do some people just seem to want to make other people miserable?'

Steve Wozniac Co founder of apple:
I am also atheist or agnostic (I don't even know the difference). I've never been to church and prefer to think for myself.Source :

Bill Gates
-In terms of doing things I take a fairly scientific approach to why things happen and how they happen. I don't know if there's a god or not, but I think religious principles are quite valid. (November 1995 on PBS on an interview with David Frost)
- "Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning." January 13, 1996 TIME magazine.

Barry Manilow
Do you believe in God?
Yes. His name is Clive Davis, and he's the head of my record company.
How important is your Judaism to you?
It isn't. My humanism is. (November 18, 1998 issue of The Independent, a uk tabloid)

Julianne Moore:
Moore was interview on the Actor's Studio (22 December 2002)
The host asked (paraphrased) "What would you say to God at the pearly gates?"
Moore answered (not paraphrased) "Wow, I was wrong, you really do exist."

Angelina Jolie:
In the September 6, 2000 edition of The Onion A.V. Club titled "Is There A God?", celebrities were asked the question. Jolie was among those asked.
Actress and tabloid fixture Angelina Jolie will soon play computer-game character LaraCroft.
The Onion: Is there a God?
Angelina Jolie: Hmm... For some people. I hope so, for them. For the people who believe in it, I hope so. There doesn't need to be a God for me. There's something in people that's spiritual, that's godlike. I don't feel like doing things just because people say things, but I also don't really know if it's better to just not believe in anything, either

John Malcovch:
I also particularly like him because he was an atheist(freud), and I grew tired of religion some time not long after birth. I believe in people, I believe in humans, I believe in a car, but I don't believe something I can't have absolutely no evidence of for millenniums. And it's funny -- people think analysis or psychiatry is mad, and THEY go to CHURCH...

Annika Sorenstam(Professional Golfer )
Question: Religious or atheist?
I believe in the good message that's found in religion. But I doubt there's someone up there above the clouds running the show.

Kevin Bacon:
I think there is a puritanical wind that is blowing. I have never seen such a lack of separation between church and state in America, I don't believe in God, but if I did I would say that sex is a Godgiven right. Otherwise it's the end of our species. Wendy Ide interviewing Bacon, 'The Outsider Wants In', The Times (London), 1 December 2005, Features, Pg. 20.

Monica Belluci:
I'm agnostic, even though I respect and I'm interested in all religions. If there's something I believe in, it's a mysterious energy, the one that fills the oceans during tides, the one that unites nature and beings."

Jodie Foster:
Question:Are you religious?
Jodie:No, I'm an atheist. But I absolutely love religions and the rituals. Even though I don't believe in God. We celebrate pretty much every religion in our family with the kids. They love it, and when they say, Are we Jewish? or Are we Catholic? I say, Well, I'm not, but you can choose when you're 18. But isn't this fun that we do seders and the Advent calendar?"Source:
Albert Einstein:
"The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.

Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of truth." -

It seems to me that the idea of a personal God is an anthropological concept which I cannot take seriously. I also cannot imagine some will or goal outside the human sphere... Science has been charged with undermining morality, but the charge is unjust. A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

Ted Turner:
“Christianity is a religion for losers.
"Christ shouldnt have bothered dying on the cross.Source:"Turners takeover tender",The Washington Times,November 6 1989.

Richard Branson(founder of the virgin empire)
I do not believe in God, but as I sat there in the damaged [balloon] capsule, hopelessly vulnerable to the slightest shift in weather or mechanical fault, I could not believe my eyes." His autobiography, Losing My Virginity (p.239).

Sir Ian McKellen
-"I was brought up a Christian, low church, and I like the community of churchgoing. That's rather been replaced for me by the community of people I work with. I like a sense of family, of people working together. But I'm an atheist. So God, if She exists, isn't really a part of my life.") -- from a January 19, 1996 profile by Tim Appelo found in Mr. Showbiz.

Matt Groening:

"I was very disturbed when Jesus found a demon in a guy, and he put the demon in a herd of pigs, then sent them off a cliff. What did the pigs do? I could never figure that out. It just seemed very un-Christian. Technically, I'm an agnostic, but I definitely believe in hell -- especially after watching the fall TV schedule."

-In the September 6, 2000 edition of The Onion A.V. Club titled "Is There A God?", celebrities were asked the question. Groening was among those asked.
The Onion: Is there a God?
Matt Groening: [Laughs.] Hold on, I have to think about this. [Long pause.] If there is a God, all evidence shows that He hates me.

Bill Maher:
Religion is dishonest and it "stops people from thinking."

Kathy Griffin:
-Now, a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus. He didn't help me a bit. If it was up to him, Cesar Millan would be up here with that damn dog. So all I can say is suck it, Jesus, this award is my god now!"(in an acceptance speech at the 2007 Primetime Emmy Awards)

Christopher Hitchens:
I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful.

Scott Williams

If we are to believe the Bible, god created a flood that nearly wiped out all of mankind, taking genocide to epic proportions. Why then is god worshiped and Hitler, who committed genocide on a smaller scale, labeled evil for similar acts?" -

Haylie Duff
I am a Christian, but I also don't really see myself as a religious person. I see myself as more of a spiritual person. There are things that I do agree with in Christianity and things that I don't agree with. I'm not a regular churchgoer, but I do think that I have my own beliefs that I feel strongly about.
