A further clarification from a British National Secular Society news item (, 4/13/07:

"Irish actor Gabriel Byrne has said that he does not believe in God, despite spending five years of his childhood in a seminary training to be a priest.... He says, 'I spent five years in the seminary and I suppose it was assumed that you had a vocation. I have realised subsequently that I didn't have one at all. I don't believe in God. But I did believe at the time in this notion that you were being called.'"
