Conservative comedian Rob Schneider announced Tuesday that he has converted to Catholicism.

“I am a new convert to Catholicism, I offer my apology for my lack of Christ’s forgiveness to my fellow man. I was so angry at the people who shut down schools and indeed the world and who coerced others to do things against their will which hurt many people deeply. I offer my unconditional forgiveness and amnesty,” Schneider wrote.

The comedian further shared the words of wisdom passed on to him over 30 years ago. “At 40, you feel like you can conquer the world and there’s a sense that nothing can stop you. But at 60 you realize the very real fragility of life and temporariness of it all,” he wrote.

Schneider recently made headlines after he railed against the Republican establishment. During his appearance on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” he expressed his desire for a diversified political landscape. Schneider also weighed in on the potential influence of third-party candidates, such as Cornel West and Robert F. Kennedy Jr., in the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election. In a candid exchange with Fox News host Laura Ingraham, Schneider voiced his concern, stating, “There’s just one party.”
