Atheist

3 Apr 2005

I'm an atheist. My mother is very religious, a churchgoer. She would often encourage me to go to church as well, but never forced it upon me, which I thought was quite decent of her. [...] There was no defining moment in which I decided there was no god for me, it was more of a growing process. I do feel that whatever religious beliefs I had as a child were foisted upon me. It's like when you ask where Grandma went when she died, and you'd be told that she went to heaven. I wouldn't necessarily view that as a bad thing, but it was stuff like that which I think hindered my intellectual development. Now that I've grown, I prefer a different interpretation.

Christopher Eccleston said, in a video for the Labour Party

Due to student debt, we are being excluded. It’s always been a policy of the Conservative government and party to destroy working class identity. [...] It’s a policy to exclude the working classes educating themselves, and realising the corruption that goes right up to the top of the Conservative Party.
