Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Get Serious About Religion
July 10th, 2010 4:41pm EDT
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt encourage their six kids to show interest in all religions - but refuse to steer them towards any particular faith.
The actress has revealed the family library is stocked with religious books and the couple never misses an opportunity to take the kids to places of worship all over the world.
Jolie tells Parade magazine, "Brad and I are raising our children to respect everyone. We have a bookshelf in the house that has the Bible, the Torah, the Koran, everything.
"We will take our children to church, temple, Buddhist ceremonies, Mosques, teaching them about all faiths. Whatever religion they choose, the choice will be theirs."
And the movie star insists religion is very important - because to some of the most desperate refugees she has met on her travels, it's the only thing they have left.
She adds, "I respect all religions. What I don't respect is when people use religion to attack others. I've met people across the world, in the middle of nowhere, who are just trying to survive and all they have is religion. In some way it helps them, and I wouldn't take it away from them."
