Brad Pitt/ Bill Maher

Brad Pitt appeared on Bill Maher recently. Maher is a reknowned atheist and a hilarious comedian. I Tivo his HBO show on a regular basis. As reported on The Huffington Post:
"You know, I grew up in a religious family, in a religious community and it just doesn't make sense to me. It just doesn't work for me in the long run," Pitt said. "I never wanted to stop anyone else's religion and their beliefs until I started seeing it defining policy.... Like gay marriage. You have a group of people telling other people how to live their lives, and you can't do that."

In this country, everyone is entitled to an opinion and has the right to express it. We can believe in God, or not. We can believe in a Christian God, a Wiccan Goddess, one God, many Gods. A personal God, the Force, or the Universe. Some are not sure what they believe. All valid because we live in America. We can’t decide the right path for others. What works for me will not work for everyone.

Besides, how can I tell other people what their path is if I haven't figured out my own, yet. (I think I might Twitter that line).
