Daniel Radcliffe on Religion

Daniel Radcliffe recently did an interview where he was asked about the religiosity of his family.

My dad believes in God, I think. I’m not sure if my mom does. I don’t. I have a problem with religion or anything that says, “We have all the answers,” because there’s no such thing as “the answers.” We’re complex. We change our minds on issues all the time. Religion leaves no room for human complexity.

Succinct and perfect.

Humanity is great, and our potential is dear.  Religion is beneath the first and an affront to the latter.
