George Carlin said that Christianity was a mental disease.
I credit that eight years of grammar school with nourishing me in a direction where I could trust myself and trust my instincts. They gave me the tools to reject my faith. They taught me to question and think for myself and to believe in my instincts to such an extent that I just said, “This is a wonderful fairy tale they have going here, but it’s not for me.”
— George Carlin, in the New York Times, August 20, 1995
“George Carlin said that Christianity was a mental disease.”
He also passed a remark that Republicans and conservatives always talk about rights for the unborn and then don’t “give a sh*t” about children after they are born.” He used to make me laugh BEFORE he got political.
