Harry Potter is a militant atheist? Well, not the fictional character himself, but the actor who plays him.

From TVNZ:

Daniel Radcliffe – militant atheist

Daniel Radcliffe believes it is important to separate religion and education because he thinks sex lessons are important.

The 22-year-old “militant atheist” was brought up in a Christian/Jewish household and told Attitude magazine he’s not religious.

“I’m an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation.

“We need sex education in schools. Schools have to talk to kids from a young age about relationships, gay and straight. In Britain it’s better – more of a conversation is being had.”

Man, I miss Zappa. Love him or hate him, few have brought the brutal – and necessary – honesty as forthright as he used to.

This review by Jonathan Kim of What the Flick sure makes it sound like it is:

 

 

Dancing movies most definitively aren’t my thing. And although it’s been years (and years) since I saw it, my residual memories of the original Footloose leave me feeling like it carefully dodged the political, tiptoed around anything substantively religious, and primarily was all about a “let kids be kids” message. So the new version sounds pointedly different.

I’ll still probably wait for video, but I have to admit this review does make me intrigued.
