Legendary conservative columnist George Will says he is an atheist.
Will explained his religious views — or lack thereof — during an extensive interview with The Daily Caller on politics, culture and his new book, “A Nice Little Place on the North Side: Wrigley Field at One Hundred.” TheDC will be featuring segments from the interview over the next several weeks.
“I am not religious at all,” Will interjected, when The Daily Caller said it heard he wasn’t particularly religious.
TheDC brought up its previous interview Charles Krauthammer, in which the other conservative Washington Post columnist said, “I don’t believe in God, but I fear him.”
“Charles is a great friend of mine and I noticed when he said that. Give me a break!” Will said.
“I’m an amiable, low voltage atheist,” Will explained. “I deeply respect religions and religious people. The great religions reflect something constant and noble in the human character, defensible and admirable yearnings.”
“I am just not persuaded. That’s all,” he added.
