I had a very Christian education.
Born in London, I was a Choirboy at York Minster, New College Oxford, St Paul’s Cathedral, Queen’s Chapel of the Savoy, built in 1515
and Chapel Royal, St James’ Palace, which dates back to 1530.
When Billy Graham brought his ‘Revival Meeting’ o London’s Wembley Stadium in 1955 I was ‘converted’…. for all of two weeks!
Two weeks of very intensive Bible study, but I was accused of asking far too many questions! I was told:
“Stop all the questioning and just have faith!”
I was a busy actor for many years. I played the title role in the original production of “The Winslow Boy” in London and on Broadway and toured the USA and Canada with the play, a three year run.
I worked a lot on stage, TV and films, one for MGM with Gene Kelly.
I knew young Marlon Brando in New York and I've traveled the world.
Having lived and worked in Spain, Portugal, Kenya, South Africa and California, also North Carolina… I'm now living in the Virginia Bible Belt (for my sins!), surrounded by big Born Again Baptists, and I've felt compelled to thoroughly re-examine my core beliefs …my religious research and study made me realize at long last, once and for all, that I do not believe any of it.
No more ‘maybes’ anymore… it’s all fabricated…for profit and power.
I've just produced an eBook "NO GOD! 500 FAMOUS ATHEISTS AND INFAMOUS THEISTS!" An antidote for America's religiosity!
