On Monday, “The Muppet Show” star Michael Cera said he’s “100% certain” he doesn’t practice “the Christian faith.”
Cera was speaking to “Good Morning America” co-anchor Maria Bartiromo.
“I think there are people that do not believe in the Christian faith,” Cera added.
“So, I just feel like I have a lot of confidence in the faith.”
The actor told Bartirom he was not the first to share his faith.
“People in my family have always been atheists, and I think that’s probably what inspired me to come out as an atheist,” Cermak said.
“And I guess I’m not the only one.
I mean, it’s a lot to be a Christian and a person in the world and just to be honest about it,” Cesarino continued.
“You just have to know that.”
Cesarino, who was raised in Southern California, was raised Catholic and was raised as a Baptist.
“And my parents were so religious,” he said.
“My dad is a preacher, and they would pray to God for the things that he would say.”
Ceramics and artistryCesarinos family is based in Los Angeles.
His father, Carl, is a carpenter, and his mother, Susan, is an artist.
He’s also a father of two, his mother said.
Cera said that as an adult he’s changed.
“Growing up, I didn’t really like religion,” he explained.
“But as I got older, I was just more aware of it, and you know, I think I was kind of like a little kid that had this deep faith.”
In a Facebook video, Cera also said that while he doesn�t consider himself a Christian, he does believe in God.
“If I was a Christian,” he says, “I would know what the Bible is, and all of the other books.
So, I would know everything that they teach about God.
I would be like, I believe in Jesus.”
Cermak says he believes the Muppeteers are “totally aware of the Bible.”
“I feel like they are just so much more authentic, more authentic than most,” he told the news outlet.
“They don’t even try to disguise that,” he added.
“I think they’re just incredibly sincere,” Cervelli said.
