Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has some strong opinions on religion and Christianity.

Rodgers was recently on Danica Patrick’s podcast and he opened up about why he decided to stop closely following Christianity despite being involved in Christian church groups while in high school.

When I was in college I didn’t find any connection points and I started questioning things and had friends with other beliefs, had some good friendships to figure out exactly what I wanted to believe in and ultimately it was that rules and regulations and binary systems really doesn’t resonate with me. I enjoyed learning about other religions and meeting the Dalai Lama and that’s been a fun path to a different type of spirituality which to me is more meaningful

Later in the interview with Patrick Rodgers was much more critical of Christianity.

This isn’t the first time Rodgers has spoken publicly about his qualms with christianity. Back in 2017 Rodgers talked about the first time he questioned his beliefs.

I remember asking a question as a young person about somebody in a remote rainforest. Because the words that I got were: ‘If you don’t confess your sins, then you’re going to hell.’ And I said, ‘What about the people who don’t have a Bible readily accessible?’

Rodgers seems like a thoughtful guy and while some will take issue with his thoughts on Christianity it doesn’t like he cares.
