What I want to tell people is, 'It's never been a matter of hating anyone.' I can sit down with anybody in this country and break bread. I love people. To me, I think we got tricked by politicians and by weird corporate concerns to believe that disagreement is hatred. And I will never go for that.

While addressing formerly gang-involved men and women at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles

I believe that this room is filled with God. You’ve made the decision to walk through the gate of forgiveness to grace. Just as Christ did on the cross. He suffered terribly, and He was broken by it, to the point of doubt and a feeling of absolute abandonment, which all of you have felt. Then, there was a decision to be made. And, the decision was to look upon the people who were causing that suffering with compassion and with forgiveness, and that’s what opens the gates of Heaven for all of us. I wish that for all of you. I wish that for myself.

Believes Vaccines Cause Autism

In an article written for The Huffington Post about vaccines

In this growing crisis, we cannot afford to blindly trumpet the agenda of the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) or vaccine makers. Now more than ever, we must resist the urge to close this book before it's been written. The anecdotal evidence of millions of parents who've seen their totally normal kids regress into sickness and mental isolation after a trip to the pediatrician's office must be seriously considered. The legitimate concern they and many in the scientific community have that environmental toxins, including those found in vaccines, may be causing autism and other disorders (Aspergers, ADD, ADHD), cannot be dissuaded by a show of sympathy and a friendly invitation to look for the 'real' cause of autism anywhere but within the lucrative vaccine program.
Summary

Carrey was raised a Roman Catholic, dabbled in Presbyterianism, and most recently subscribed to the New Age spiritualism of Eckhart Tolle.

Carrey has spoken positively of President Obama and championed a liberal cause or two. His political interests, however, seem to lie outside of the U.S.

Editorial

Jim Carrey was born in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2004 but still holds citizenship in Canada.

He was raised a Catholic but dabbled in Presbyterianism later in life.[1] Despite his funnyman reputation, one gets the sense when studying Carrey that he's a complex, searching person. He spoke about looking for spiritual answers as a child and being inspired by the Buddha[2] but has also expressed a distrust of organized religions.[3]

He's cracked jokes about Scientologists[4] and, as of yet, hasn't joined Kabbalah but he did seem to latch onto Oprah's favorite religious non-religion–the cult of Eckhart Tolle.

Tolle's New Age somewhat ambiguous, generic spirituality has attracted another celebrity. But Carrey seems like a smart guy, so maybe I'm missing something. He spoke at Tolle's Inaugural GATE Event (Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment) and seemed very serious about it.[5]

Outside politics

Carrey, maybe because he's Canadian, expresses a sense of the political situation outside of the United States–and even North America. He is a pro-democracy advocate and made a video that circulated the internet raising awareness and showing support for Burmese democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi.[6]

When asked about the newly-elected Barack Obama in 2008 (who he supports) Carrey's response was mainly about U.S. relations with the rest of the world. He said:

It's amazing to see the difference in one day after he was elected… We've been doing everything in our power in the last eight years to make [other countries] dislike us. We've completely discounted other people for the last eight years and I think this is a sign to them that we understand that they're there and that we have to play ball with everybody.[7]

He's also jumped on the purist medication, liberal train and protested the use of toxic vaccines in children by marching in Washington D.C.[8]
