In their album AEnima, the liner notes included the following statement:
"This sort of behavior is left to the psychotic, dogmatic, fundamentalist believers you see on T.V. everyday letting off bombs and killing people in the name of God. Beliefs are dangerous. Beliefs allow the mind to stop functioning. A non-functioning mind is clinically dead. Believe in nothing."
Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan has been removed from the 'ousted' list and is now included here.
See lyrics in "Opiate", from the Tool album of the same name.
Update (28-May-01): A reader reports (Editor asks, when and where?) that "when asked about whether or not he reads The Bible, Maynard responded 'Sure, I love fairy tales.'"
