Daniel Radcliffe as Harry PotterImage by longplay via Flickr
Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who has player Harry Potter in the films of that name, has confirmed in an Esquire interview that he is an atheist. As reported in The Telegraph, Radcliffe not only identified himself as an atheist in this interview but expressed his respect for Richard Dawkins. I suppose Christian extremists have yet another reason to boycott the Harry Potter films.

Radcliffe was quoted as saying,

I'm an atheist, but I'm very relaxed about it. I don't preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do. Anything he does on television, I will watch.

Daniel Radcliffe's beliefs (or lack of them) are typical of the vast majority of young people in England.
Only around 3% of young people in the UK attend church.

I knew there was something about that kid I loved. Can't wait til the fundies start hopping up and down and pissing down both legs over this bit of news. Let them boycott....more room for the rest of us.
