10 Famous American Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Muslim

What would a country look like if there were no American Muslims? Islamaphobes might find they don’t actually like the result.

The recent events in Paris and ISIS’s rise to power in the Middle East are a misunderstanding of Islam and violent extremism has led to rampant Islamophobia throughout the world and most notably in America and some Islamophobia. We’d like to ban Muslims into the country altogether which is stupid and ridiculous because a lot of Muslim Americans have made some pretty great contributions to our country here.

Ten famous Muslim Americans that you may have not known are actually Muslim.

Now I hope you know with the first one Malcolm X human rights activists obviously extremely influential in the civil rights movement. Obviously a Muslim as well.

The next one is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The Center for the Lakers team. The NBA leading scorer and one of the greatest players in American history.

Steve Jobs many of you probably using a device produced by his company. His father was a Syrian emigre to America also a Muslim.

The next one. Of course we all know Muhammad Ali the boxing legend and one of the most recognized sports figures in the world. But he also outside of the ring was a big proponent of religious freedom Regional Justice and the triumph of principle over expedience.

And he was a big proponent for peace. That’s true as well.

Ellen Burstyn very famous actress she was in The Exorcist. Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore. And most recently inter-stellar which I hear wasn’t amazing but that’s not her fault.

She actually converted to Islam which is interesting.

At the next one is Jawi Karim the co-founder of whom for whom. Without him we would have zero jobs.

Exactly. Yes I would be on the street a man as well. Incredibly beautiful model and actress a business owner as well she has her own line of cosmetics which I use daily.

The next one is Snoop Dog or Snoop Lion where you like to refer to him as. He’s obviously a rapper and actor.

Yep great chef as well he cooks up gin and juice and it’s delicious. Dr. Oz. Yes he’s got a little bit of trouble recently but he did quite a bit of good prior to that a health expert and a TV host for many years had some great smoothie recipes.

And the last one Dave Chappelle the comedian screenwriter TV and film producer and actor funny man and he’s obviously plenty of Muslims have had a credible positive impact on American politics civil rights technology arts media and the list goes on and on.

And by the way even if they hadn’t the very idea of trying to ban an entire group from coming into this country based on religion or race or sexual orientation or national origin or whatever characteristic you want to list is freaking ridiculous and goes against everything our country was founded on.

Exactly and we just kind of provided you a sample of some of the most notable Muslim Americans. But I want you guys to go down the comments and names of Muslim Americans who have contributed to our country to any country and looks like this Islamophobia because it’s ridiculous.

20 Famous Celebrities and Entrepreneurs Who are Atheists and Agnostics

Here’s an interesting question. Who are the most famous atheists and agnostics. This is a really really interesting list. A lot more people than I thought are on the list. So rent lifestyle. Put this together.

Well we’ll go through a few of them here. I actually ranked them. I’m going to give you the top 20. But first of all let me say that I purposely left off the ones that are obvious the ones that are like almost most are known for their atheism. So Richard Dawkins Christopher Hitchens Sam Harris love all those guys to death. They’re the best but I’m leaving them off the list on purpose because they’re specifically kind of known for that. Even Bill Maher comedian very well-known atheist George Carlin same thing. So they’re off the list on purpose so don’t worry I didn’t forget about them. They’re in their own separate special category. But let me give you the other ones. The most famous atheists and agnostics.

Number 20 Steve Wozniak. He’s one of the founders of Apple. He says he quote falls somewhere in the middle of atheism and agnosticism. Pretty cool to have a guy like that here. Then we have Billy Joel atheist Joaquin Phoenix. Quote I don’t believe in God. I don’t believe in an afterlife. I don’t believe in soul. I don’t believe in anything. I think it’s totally right for people to have their own beliefs if it makes them happy. But to me it’s a pretty preposterous idea. Could agree with him more there buddy. Daniel Radcliffe aka Harry Potter.

Apparently an atheist James Cameron director Lance Armstrong Jodie Foster Seth MacFarlane, of course, the creator of Family Guy and Cosmos. Now Bruce Lee legend Bruce Lee. He said he was influenced by different religions but he considers himself to be an atheist. Mick Jagger atheist John Lennon atheist and now let’s get to the top ten

Number Ten. Jack Nicholson said quote I don’t believe in God now.

But he added I can still work up an envy for someone who has a faith. I can see how that could be a deeply soothing experience. So that’s interesting there’s a lot. And by the way the diversity of beliefs on this list it’s actually white as well because you have between atheists and agnostics and also people who have different feelings and beliefs towards religion to some of these guys or hostels or religion like I am. Others say well look I see some reason for it even though I don’t agree with it.

Number 9 Jesse Ventura, of course, former governor now big time conspiracy theorist former wrestler just an all around are really really interesting guy. I certainly don’t agree with him on everything. I do agree with him on some things.

Number eight. Rafael Nadal. Of course the incredibly talented tennis player.

Number seven Howard Stern he says quote In a typical Howard Stern way here’s what happens when you die. You sit in a box and get eaten by worms. I guarantee you that when you die nothing cool happens. That’s a Howard Stern comment.

Number six now for the record the reason I put it in this order is half because I wanted to put them in this order. But the other half is because I feel obligated to put them in this order by popular demand. I guess you could say.

And that’s why Brad Pitt is number six. Brad Pitt arguably the best looking man in the history of the universe according to some people I’m sure. That is why he’s number six and he’s a decent actor in my opinion. Some people might attack me and say How dare you only call him decent. OK he’s good he’s a good actor. They’re just not big into all this stuff anyway.

Number five Angelina Jolie. Again I felt obligated. She said there doesn’t have to be a god for me. There’s something in people that spiritual that is God like. So she’s one of those kind of like New Age atheists that still has like weird spiritual beliefs. I disagree with her on that stuff. But nonetheless she’s an atheist.

Number four Mark Zuckerberg the guy who’s worth 97 quadrillion dollars. Of course founder of Facebook creator of Facebook.

Number three Bill Gates, of course, another guy worth nine thousand four hundred and six septillion dollars founder of Microsoft creator of Microsoft. And now we get to my two favorites.

Number two the great Albert Einstein Albert Einstein is the man.
There’s a little bit of controversy over this one. I have to say because there are some quotes of his where he references God and a lot of Christians and deists like to use that in their favor. But if you look at the totality of his quotes he doesn’t believe in God in the way that you think he does. He uses that to represent nature. So that’s not God he’s just using it in that way. And here’s a quote here that sets it to rest for me. Albert Einstein said quote The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses. The Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can for me change this. So the dude is at at least an agnostic. That to me sounds like an atheist certainly an anti-theist brilliant guy. Obviously one of the smartest people that ever lived and number one. Who the heck beat out Albert Einstein you’re ready for this.

Number one. Stephen Hawking the only guy that is arguably is smarter than Albert Einstein. Just an amazing guy. He deserves the number one position. Ladies and gentlemen on this alone I rest my case.

10 Celebrity Names You Didn’t Know Were Hardcore Atheists

These famous folks just don’t believe in a higher power until it’s disproven. We have faith that if it’s true if the mathematics work out Minaj true until it’s proven to be untrue.

Welcome to watch. And today we’re counting down our picks for the top ten celebrity atheists. Before we begin we publish new videos every day. So be sure to subscribe for more great content for this list. We’ll be ranking the most high profile celebrities who’ve been the most forthright or outspoken about their atheist beliefs. We’ll also be including agnostics as part of this list but not scientists or philosophers. To be clear we’re not making any moral judgments about the superiority of any one religious or life choice over another. We’re simply listing those celebrities who’ve made it a point to come out in public as atheists or agnostics. Or I thought you were a practicing Catholic. I am I’m good at it.

Number 10. Brad Pitt. Not every child grows up adhering to the same religious beliefs as his or her parents. Case in point. Brad Pitt who was raised in a religious Southern Baptist family with strict rules and regulations and don’t agree. I do know that eventually grew to adopt a spiritual view which he claimed was quote 20 percent atheist 80 percent agnostic and an interview with The Telegraph stressed the actor’s identification as atheist. Stated that his youth was filled with what he referred to as quote Christian guilt an upbringing that the actor feels eventually led to a spiritual shift.

Number nine. Stephen Fry. Why should I respect a capricious mean minded stupid god. The noted British comedian writer and actor has long been a staunch and outspoken proponent of atheism. One particular conversation that turned mainstream attention towards Frye’s belief was a 2015 interview with Irish broadcaster Gabe Byrne when commenting on what he’d ask God if given the opportunity. Frye said he’d bring up injustices like bone cancer in children as proof that God quote deserves no respect whatsoever. So a bone cancer in children. But. The clip proved to be a viral hit as well receiving millions of views within only a few days of being uploaded and it shed further light on the artist’s religiously sceptical atheist viewpoint as well as his support of humanist causes and gay rights.

Number eight. Daniel Radcliffe you’re a wizard Harry. I lost in a 2009 interview the Harry Potter actor talked about his quote relaxed form of atheism. What do we mean by relaxed. Well Radcliffe has been anything but vocal regarding the spiritual beliefs or lack thereof. And prefers to mostly keep his beliefs to himself. However one notable figure did seem to be annoyed about Radcliffe’s religious choice. Ohio Governor John Kasich commented that he felt it was quote weird that Radclyffe is an atheist. Considering the level of success he reached with the Harry Potter franchise. Funnily enough Casey has probably said more publicly about Radcliffe’s atheism than Radcliffe has.

Number seven. Trey Parker South Park has poked fun at just about everything under the sun. My God Is that all things to a good person just to prove a point to Satan. Oh.

I don’t know. But just because he usually identifies as an atheist and mocks religion pretty much every chance he gets doesn’t mean Trey Parker hates religion. In fact he referred to his and Matt Stone’s hit Broadway musical The Book of Mormon as quote an atheist love letter to religion during a 2011 interview. Parker admits that he didn’t grow up with a deep personal connection to religion and instead prefers to see the levity and humor in it all. As a result he has also commented that he sees Star Wars as a viable religious option. May the Force be with.

Number six. Keira Knightley. Some atheists are more likely than others to poke fun at their own life choices. One such nonbeliever is actress Keira Knightley who lamented humorously in a 2012 piece with Interview magazine that she quote could get away with anything if she weren’t an atheist. Knightley was specifically commenting on the sexual indiscretions of some high profile conservative Republican leaders during the interview and continued by admitting how much easier it would be to simply ask for forgiveness from a higher power as opposed to living with human guilt. I’m so sorry please forgive me.

Number five George Carlin. George Carlin was and is a legendary comedian. Partly because he never shied away from controversy. The New York-born Carlon may have attended Catholic grammar school as a child.

But his path eventually led him to atheism a choice Carlin mentioned in much of his material as he got older the comedian would satirize everything from the belief in a quote invisible man in the sky to the idea that praying to the sun or to actor Joe Pesci were more worthwhile endeavors.

Carlin continued to be critical of religion up until his death in 2008. Frequently returning to the subject on stage in print and on the silver screen or having ten commandments was really a marketing decision.

Number four Simon Pegg opens the concept of religion and has not entirely convinced by writer actor and all round geek icon Simon Pegg may not be as outspoken on atheist issues as George Carlin. But the popular entertainment personality remains an example of a well-adjusted celebrity atheist Pegg’s stances on the topic are seen mainly on his Twitter account where the actor has commented on such issues as the perils and challenges of atheist parenting to how many atheists are accused of possessing quote no moral compass. Throughout

Throughout it all pagans managed to continue balancing his personal beliefs with his thriving career as one of victims most in-demand creative voices.

Number three. Bill Maher and his formidable career as a commentator and talk show host Bill Maher has long been regarded as an influential creative voice when it comes to the world of biting political satire. The writer-actor and critic has also been quite outspoken when it comes to the subject of religion.

With Maher having identified over the years as an atheist agnostic and a pantheist the latter of which is defined as one who is apathetic to the existence of God I don’t have anybody from my tribe of atheists ever thanked you for giving us a shout out at your first inaugural but you didn’t mention nonbelievers self-labeling may have varied over the years but his criticisms against organized religion remain as fiery today as they ever were. I don’t even believe in Christ but for Christ sake.

Number two. Seth MacFarlane. Seth MacFarlane may have hedged his bets when he called himself 99 percent atheist in a 2015 tweet but that 1 percent hasn’t stopped him from being an outspoken advocate for atheism in the public eye.

What do you think of the fact that it seems to be a movement that’s gaining credibility as of late. I think it’s about the writer slash actor gave an interview in 2009 with Esquire about the necessity for promoting quote knowledge over faith.

And made further connections between the fight for atheists to be heard and the struggles of the civil rights movement.

It’s just another way God mysteriously shows that he loves us.

MacFarlane’s criticism of religion has also made its way into some episodes of Family Guy a show that’s always served in part as a window into McFarland’s beliefs and ideas.

Well if you’re not Jesus Christ then you won’t mind if I pee on these Amy Grant CDs don’t you are Jesus.

Yes before we unveil our number one pick. Here are some honorable mentions.

That’s essentially how I feel about life full of loneliness and misery and suffering and unhappiness and it’s all over much too quickly.

We’ll eat well we’ll drink good wine we’ll make love. You know who exactly is going to make love. Hopefully the three of us are not as a man of God. You’re not number one.

Ricky Gervais. I think that’s a strange myth. I have nothing to live for. Is the opposite. We have nothing to die for. Few celebrities are as open about their atheist beliefs as writer actor and comedian Ricky Gervais. The co-creator of The Office openly discusses the subject with the media and through his Twitter account the latter of which has sparked interesting and occasionally hostile conversations with his audience. Gervais’s remains undaunted and unintimidated However even using an interview with The Independent in 2015 to discuss what he felt were misconceptions about atheists like the idea that atheists are arrogant or equivalent to Satanists or agnostics. Basically when someone asks him why he doesn’t believe in God he is most likely responses. Well why do you.

I don’t think there is a heaven and I don’t think there’s a how. But you know will be nice to anyone. Do you agree with our picks. Check out these other great clips from watch mojo and subscribe for new videos every day.

10 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Religious and What They Believe

These celebrities all have faith. Today we’re counting down our picks for the top 10 celebrities you didn’t know were religious.

For this list we’re taking a look at celebrities whose faith or religious beliefs may come as a surprise or sometimes even as a shock to most people. Celebrities whose religions aren’t necessarily established can be included on this list as well. Maybe because of the foundations that are laid in my life my mom taking me to a church that I want to take a different approach I guess.

10 – BECK

It’s been in my family. My dad’s. Been doing it for about almost 40 years.
That is a second generation Scientologist who only first publicly acknowledged his affiliation with the religion in 2005. There are many controversies associated with Scientology including the accusation that it’s a cult. So Beck usually keeps to himself when it comes to his faith.
You can feel it’s unfairly criticized at times.
Well I mean yeah I think it’s the good done is speaks for itself.
Well the musician himself didn’t give the most eloquent and coherent of answers to the Sunday Tribune with regards to Scientology’s philosophy. He did give vulture a simple and seemingly humble response a few years later. Basically for back Scientology is just this thing that he does. And like anything it has its fair share of crazies regulars and everything in between.

9 – Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson you have to love everybody and that’s what God is about love. Religion isn’t the first word that jumps to mind when you think of former professional boxer and heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. That’s probably because of his reputation as a fierce fighter and his past problems with the law. To. Get me. At that point trying to. Be that as it may. Tyson reportedly converted to Islam in the 1990s while serving jail time for rape and he hasn’t looked back. Today Tyson maintains that quote a law doesn’t need him. He needs a law. My first line to my first obligation is to a law. In the time since he’s joined the faith Tyson has adopted the name Malik Abdul Aziz traveled to Mecca and sobered up maintaining that he sees Islam more as a discipline than simply a religion a Muslim a better appreciation of God now than I ever did back then.

8 – Orlando Bloom

Orlando Bloom and here with as though he was raised as an Anglican. Orlando Bloom has been dedicated to his Buddhist faith since the age of 19. A full member of the United Kingdom branch of Soka Gakkai International since 2004 a group devoted to quote peace education and cultural exchange has said he credits Buddhism with keeping him quote anchored and giving him a quote sense of self something that probably comes in handy in Hollywood. Orlando Bloom actually and Justin Bieber Blum has explained that his chosen religion helps him on a day to day basis. He said that Buddhism is quote about studying what’s going on in his daily life and using that as fuel to go and live a bigger life. Seems like it’s working for him. Moon is so comfy around Perry has no issue ditching his shorts and Katie doesn’t seem to mind one bit.

7 – Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg became tough because he chose to be the man once known as Marky Mark used to have a reputation as a bad boy. But today Mark Wahlberg says that his faith is one of the most important aspects of his life. In fact he’s credited religion with helping him get back on track after his life took some dark turns raised Irish Catholic in Boston. This rapper turned movie star says that he prays and attends church regularly if not every day but does not wish to push his religion on anyone else was.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars. So he’s very generous. He is extremely.
So is Wahlberg praying for his next movie to be a hit. No he says he’s simply focusing on being good in all the things he does gives his time and money to help kids. Many of whom now see him as a hometown hero.

6 – Brandon Flowers

My name is Brandon Flowers. My father has been on the Mormon hill rock out with the best of them as lead singer of The Killers. But aside from being a rockstar. Brandon Flowers is a devout Mormon and family man Flowers says that when he was six years old his father quit drinking as part of his newfound Mormon faith. That change affected flowers deeply and although he also struggled with alcohol abuse when he first got involved in the rock n roll scene he too devoted himself more fully to his Mormonism when he started his family.
I was like there’s a chamber in your heart that you don’t know exists. Opens up when you have a baby.
Now that he’s sober flowers has become a notable face for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints aiming to clear up common misconceptions about his faith. And I realized.
I was raised in it and I still there’s still a fire burning in there.

5 – Prince

Wanting to make love to you my whole life.
With his flamboyant outfits and sexually charged lyrics. Prince was a larger than life personality in the music world. What many fans may not have realized however is that when he wasn’t shredding his guitar he was quietly adhering to his faith as a Jehovah’s Witness after joining the faith in the early 2000s. Brother Nelson embraced his chosen religion engaging in charitable activities philanthropy and even going door to door to discuss his beliefs. According to his fellow parishioners the outrageous rock star they’d see on stage was a far cry from the shy man who attended church wearing understated clothing but maybe most important of all for such a gifted musician. Prince credited God with inspiring his talent.

4 – Dave Chappelle

Dave Chappelle you get to choose from the celebrities who you think is the most them. Is Close but no your best days are very good.
Dave Chappelle is known as a comedic genius who challenges societal norms and isn’t afraid of offending.
Scientists say AIDS started. Somebody had sex with a monkey. Work.
But since 1998 he’s also led a faith based life as a convert to Islam. Chappelle’s religion is a topic he doesn’t often discuss in public however and he’s got a good reason for that. He doesn’t want people to link any problems they might have with him with Islam. This is especially important to him because he believes Islam is quote beautiful. If you learn the right way for chapell his religion is basically a guidebook for how he lives his life in a well balanced way. And fortunately he’s been able to keep his sense of humor as well.
A lot of black people don’t have the privilege of knowing about grape juice because they have great drink. It’s not the same formula.

3 – Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods feels good clever she makes this.
Tiger Woods was raised a Buddhist and practiced the religion for most of his childhood. However during his infidelity scandal in 2009 Woods brought awareness to his faith. When he mentioned it in his very public apology he said that he had strayed from Buddhism and lost track of why it was an important part of his life.
People probably don’t realize it but I was raised a Buddhist and I actively practiced my faith from childhood until I drifted away from it.
In recent years but core tenets of the faith are respect and personal responsibility. So Woods said he was making a spiritual commitment to revisit his once devout faith in the past. Woods has explained that Buddhism to him is a way of life.
It teaches me to stop following every impulse and to eat and to learn restraint and at least as a youth he practiced it with the same discipline he devoted to the sport of golf.

2 – Alice Cooper

Today the King of Shock Rock is not only an avid golfer and a teetotal. He’s also a born again Christian though the image that made him famous is more demonic than heavenly. And he once struggled through drug and alcohol abuse. A bottle of whiskey a day. Cooper grew up in a Christian household. His father was a preacher and he himself was active in his church as a child.
I grew up in a Christian home by my wife’s father was a Baptist pastor.
He says he revisited his faith in the 80s after he realized that all the partying and materialism he’d experienced wasn’t what he wanted from life.
And so I don’t think there’s anything in the Bible that says you can’t be a rock n roller. I don’t know Zo.
He quit drinking went back to church and now says he’s more satisfied in his life. Before we unveil our number one pick. Here are some honorable mentions.
How much is too long to come back to night service in a bed at night.
I think you believe what you have to choose. Used of faith yes.

1 – Stephen Colbert

No word yet on whether they were in Cuba to sell real estate or find a fresh supply of beauty contestants to fat shame.
You know him best is a witty late night talk show host. Or perhaps the pompous blowhard who used to play on TV but did you also know that Stephen Colbert is deeply religious and we know every word is true because the Bible says that the Bible is true.
And if you remember from earlier in this sentence every word of the Bible is true.
Raised Roman Catholic by devout parents. Was taught that challenging the church does not make you any less Catholic. Hopefully you can still feel your faith fully.
And let your mind have a logical life of its own.
That might explain his willingness to poke fun at religion to a point. Or I thought you were a practicing Catholic. I don’t mean I’m good at it.
A Sunday school teacher who also officiated a wedding live on his show Colbert has credited his faith with helping him deal with the tragedies in his life. Like when his father and two of his brothers were killed in a plane crash when he was a child. But perhaps most importantly he stressed the value of humor in faith.
Jesus says so I say to you do not worry for who among you by worrying can change a hair on his head or add a Cuban to the span of his life. What I like about it is that it is a commandment to not worry and I’ll go with that.

Talk about brotherly love Ariana Grande day is opening up about her decision to leave the Catholic Church and it has a lot to do with her brother Frankie as we’re sure you know Agee’s half brother Frankie is openly gay and when he came out it made Ariana question her faith. In an interview with The Independent Ariana opened up about the whole situation and was very candid telling the outlet when my brother was told that God didn’t love him I was like OK that’s not cool. However Adriaan it is a spiritual person so they decided to try their hand with another religion Kabbalah and discuss how they came to that decision.

Arianna said that since joining the church quote My life has unfolded in a really beautiful way and I think that it has a lot to do with the tools I’ve learned through Kabbalah. I really do bring it back to her brother Frankie Arianne has said that he is the main reason she even got in this thing because since he’s 10 years older than her she really idolized him. So when Frankie got into musical theater Ariano followed suit. Well that seemed to work out pretty well for her.

I bet you didn’t know that about gifts.

Julia Roberts is one of the most popular actresses Hollywood has ever seen.

Julie considers herself a practicing Hindu and she and her family go to a Hindu temple where they pray.

But you didn’t know Mark Wahlberg was so religious either. Mark was raised in a Roman Catholic family but because he was not always so observant people usually don’t think that he is religious at all. Actually, Mark is thankful to the Catholic Church for saving him from a life of crime. Today Mark attends church daily and when he can not attend he regularly prays in his room where he has a crucifixion art. That is a replica of the one at the Vatican and they have five famous people you didn’t know were so religious if you like the video.

5 Stupid Celebrities Who Say They Don’t Beleive in God

Celebrities are role models for a lot of reasons and religion is no exception. Then there are those celebs who have very little religion as we know it and even less belief in God. And that’s not perhaps a good or bad thing. But wait until you see who is listed here. It might even surprise you with this being said here are five celebrities who don’t believe in God.

Daniel Radcliffe Not just any atheist. Daniel is passionate about separation of church and state. The Harry Potter star becomes militant’s when he sees religious beliefs dictating laws and is happy to openly anger the far right. It was just in front of the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince that Daniel now says atheism which had American conservatives in an uproar. He also loves the fact that people think he’s gay as it allows them to go to the gay communities against those who oppose them.

Lance Armstrong last had his fair share of trials in his life and each time he has believed in science rather than any god. It was first at the age of 25 that he felt like God cannot exist. This was just before he was to get a cancerous brain tumor removed. Later Lance would also fight prostate cancer and then famously be stripped of his seven Tour de France titles for doping. According to Lance and many others if God is up there then why would he judge us based on some book and not our personal actions. Lance has made no secret to his atheism.
