I am a militant atheist: Daniel Radcliffe

Despite being raised in a Christian-Jewish household, "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe says he is a militant atheist.

The 22-year-old actor believes it is important to separate religion and education because he thinks sex lessons are important, reported Guardian online.

"I'm not religious, I'm an atheist, and a militant atheist when religion starts impacting on legislation. We need sex education in schools. Schools have to talk to kids from a young age about relationships, gay and straight. In Britain it's better, more of a conversation is being had," Radcliffe said.

The actor also said that he continues to have a vested interest in politics, but having supported the Liberal Democrat party in the last UK election, he now thinks he is more of a Labour follower, because he believes they stand up for more left-wing values.

"I will probably be going to Labour. From what I've seen of Ed Miliband I really like him and he speaks for what I believe in. I think he's genuine, genuinely left wing and will act as such if he gets in," he added.
