Maynard James Keenan


Singer/ songwriter of bands Tool and A Perfect Circle

In response to the rumor that he had found Jesus to MTV news:
"I was actually quite surprised people bought it. Especially considering most of the subject matter of my work. 'Judith,' for example. I guess when I said 'f--- your god,' I didn't mean the actual God. Just the god of sheep who lack a sense of humor."

Of her religion, Portman says, "I'm much more like the product of a doctor than I am a Jew." She is uncomfortable about the concept of the afterlife. "I don't believe in that. I believe this is it, and I believe it's the best way to live."

Andy Rooney


American journalist and commentator on CBS's 60 minutes

An excerpt from an article (http://www.tuftsdaily.com/vnews/display.v/ART/2004/11/19/419d9928aafe0) on Rooney in the November 19, 2004 edition of The Tufts Daily (http://www.tuftsdaily.com):

Rooney also attributed voters' reliance on religion in the recent election to ignorance. "I am an atheist," Rooney said. "I don't understand religion at all. I'm sure I'll offend a lot of people by saying this, but I think it's all nonsense."

He said Christian fundamentalism is a result of "a lack of education. They haven't been exposed to what the world has to offer."
