Brad Pitt Turns His Back On Religion: ‘Didn’t Work For Me’
The Hollywood actor has slammed his Godly upbringing saying he didn’t agree with it. “I grew up Baptist, and then the family switched over to more of an evangelical movement, probably right around the time I was in late high school,” he told Parade magazine.
“There’s a point where you’re un-tethered from the beliefs of your childhood. That point came for me when it was finally clear my religion didn’t work for me.
“I had questions about Christianity that I could not get answered to my satisfaction, questions that I’d been asking since I was in kindergarten. I realized it didn’t feel right to me, that one question just led to another. It was like going down a rabbit hole, each answer provoking another question. There were things I didn’t agree with.”
But Brad says that although he has a totally different belief system and point of view to his parents, Jane and William, they respect each other’s opinions.
“My family is all devout Christians. Yes, absolutely. We don’t see eye to eye on this one, yet at the end of the day we love each other, we’re still family,” he shared. [more]
