Emma Thompson: I`m an atheist. I regard religion with fear & suspicion

Emma Thompson an Atheist

"I`m an atheist... I regard religion with fear and suspicion. It`s not enough to say that I don`t believe in God. I actually regard the system as distressing: I am offended by some of the things said in the Bible and the Qur`an, and I refute them." — Emma Thompson
