So Harry Potter is an atheist?

Well, he never did go to church now, did he?

Actually, the actor who plays him has outed himself in the media. Daniel Radcliffe is not ashamed to say he’s an atheist:

in an interview to promote the latest instalment in the film franchise – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, due for release on July 15 – he said:

I’m an atheist, but I’m very relaxed about it. I don’t preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do. Anything he does on television, I will watch.

And he joked:

There we go … that’s half of America that’s not going to see the next Harry Potter film on the back of that comment.

I was going to watch the movie anyway, but now I feel some kind of camaradarie needs supporting.

Attaboy. You tell ’em!
