Larry King: “I Think the Only Reason for Religion is Death. If You Didn’t Die, There’d Be No Religion”

We’ve known for a while that former CNN host Larry King was an atheist, but he opened up about it more than usual during an interview on New York City’s Power 105.1 morning radio show “The Breakfast Club.”
