‘Succession’ Actor Bashes The Bible In Harsh Commentary

(Republican Insider) – Scottish actor Brian Cox, who stars in the hit series ‘Succession,’ is no fan of the Bible, God, or religion in general, a belief he made quite clear during an episode of ‘The Starting Line’ podcast that was released on Monday. And before we all get angry and ready to rip him a new one, which, I admit, I’m tempted to do myself, let’s remember that the Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to pray for people like Cox and do our best to love them. The kind of love that seeks to do good to someone even if they’re hostile to you and your faith.

According to Fox News, the actor, who is a self-professed atheist, said that religion gives humanity false stories about the nature of reality and has contributed to their “stupidity.”

“Human beings are so f—d, basically… because they’re so stupid,” he declared during the interview. Cox then remarked that religion has “led us into all kinds of horror,” referencing both the Holocaust and the conflicts raging in Ukraine and Gaza. I guess he forgot about atheistic communism and the millions of deaths it caused. Must be nice to have such a selective memory.

“The same things are being repeated again and again in belief systems which do not serve,” he added.

“The actor claimed the conflict in the Middle East is ‘never going to go away,’ because it is fueled by these faulty systems which hurt both Muslims and Jews. Lamenting the lives lost in the conflict, he added, ‘People are so stupid… and they cannot see the writing on the wall.’ The problem with religion is that it shields humans from examining how they are contributing to society’s problems, he argued,” Fox reported.

“It’s all about this notion of God, the idea that there’s a God that takes care of us all. There’s no such thing, doesn’t happen, that’s not what it’s about. It’s about us, and we don’t examine ourselves nearly enough. We don’t look at who we are. We’re always looking outside of ourselves, instead of looking inside ourselves,” Cox stated as he explained his take on humanity’s relationship with religion.

He then proceeded to call the Bible “one of the worst books ever.”

I typically don’t like to presume upon the state of a person’s soul, but I think it’s safe to say, at this point, if Cox is called to account for his life, he’s probably taking a trip downstairs rather than upstairs if you know what I mean.

Cox whined about the creation account of Adam and Eve, saying that it’s “propaganda” and has contributed to the establishment of a “patriarchal” society. You know, this guy strikes me as the type that likes to hear himself talk because he feels he’s smarter than every other person in the room. Arrogance and pride must ooze out of his pores.

“Because it starts with the idea that Adam’s rib – you know that [from] Adam’s rib, this woman was created, and they’ll believe it because they’re stupid enough,” the actor railed. “It is not the truth, it’s a mythology,” he added. “We’ve created that idea of God, and we’ve created it as a control issue, and it’s also a patriarchal issue… and it’s essentially patriarchal – we haven’t given enough scope to the matriarchy.”

If God was created as a control mechanism to keep people in line, it’s failed spectacularly, don’t you think? People are doing whatever weirdness they want to, believing they’re cats, dogs, the opposite gender, and all sorts of madness. The vast majority of society is not Christian and has moved further and further away from religion in general. Not sure why Cox is acting like we’re still living in Old Testament times because people seem to be doing whatever their heart desires, which is the opposite of being controlled.

“The ‘Succession’ star explained how he’s found more answers to life’s questions through acting. He explained that he believes the ‘one true church’ to be the theater because it ‘is the church of humanity,'” Fox News noted.

“It’s people dealing with… those false gods we create for ourselves and the notion of the word God anyway, is a conceit. It’s a terrible conceit that we don’t really acknowledge,” the actor commented in closing.

  1. Evidently Mr Cox is not aware that all religion are belief systems.
    Some of us believe in the teachings of God and his Son Jesus Christ. Others believe in Muslim, Indian, and even Satanic deities.

    Mr Cox’s belief system – his RELIGION! – is that he is free to do anything he wishes since there is no afterlife accounting for his deeds while alive. To him that is the justification to act anyway he wishes regardless of the impact on others.

    Maybe Mr Cox feels that his view on religion is superior to all others and maybe he believes that the Government is the true god (lower g is intentional) that he, Mr Cox, worships.

    To individuals like Mr Cox I just politely tell them the can believe whatever they wish and to leave me alone with MY belief system of an ALL Powerful GOD and his SON!

  2. I agree with Mr. Cox. I really don’t care if you choose to believe in a god for whom you have no proof. You choose to attempt to explain that with things made up like fairy tales. If one believes in the easter bunny, the tooth fairy, santa clause, would you disagree. How about unicorns.
    People like you tend to want to force your will on those who don’t believe as you rather than the other way around as illustrated by your beginning. As for me I try disassociate myself from ignorance and stupidity.
