Larry David mocks religion

In a NY Times interview Larry David responded to a question about making fun of his father in laws religion...

Larry David: "I wasn't making fun of my father in laws religion. And even if I was so what, it's a comedy. Religion should be made fun of, it's quite ridiculous isn't it. Think how people spend their lives, they have no idea. They go around as if this is a fact. It's so insane you know. If I really believed that stuff I'd keep it to myself. Lest somebody think I was out of my mind."

Larry David makes fun of religion

These comments lead one to believe that Larry David is an atheist. The question wasn't asked directly so we will have to wait for a confirming quote. Considering that the referred to religions as ridiculous and that believing them as if they are fact is insane certainly makes one think he rejects religion. It is possible to reject religion and still believe in god. Since he doesn't accept religion as fact I have placed him in the agnostic category and ambiguous. --Sapient 04:58, 24 November 2011 (UTC)
