From Celebrity Atheist List

Jump to: navigation, search

Donohoe is probably best known as the actress playing C.J., the bisexual lawyer, on the TV drama L.A. Law. In the horror film, Lair of the White Worm, Donohoe played a reincarnated pagan priestess who belonged to a snake-worshipping cult stamped out by the early Christians. A controversial scene in the film required Donohoe's character to spit venom on a crucifix. When a reporter from Interview magazine asked her about the scene, Donohoe replied, "I'm an atheist, so it was actually a joy. Spitting on Christ was a great deal of fun. I can't embrace a male god who has persecuted female sexuality throughout the ages. And that persecution still goes on today all over the world."
