During an interview with Mandisa Thomas of Black Nonbelievers, Walter “Killah Priest” Reed revealed he now no longer subscribes to any doctrine. Reed showed his support for Openly Secular, a campaign to eliminate discrimination and increase acceptance of atheists, freethinkers, agnostics, humanists, and other non-religious people.

“I’m not religious. Someone told me before that religion keeps everything divided. You can’t really kick it if your mom is a Jehovah Witness and you’re a Baptist. There’s no unity,” said Priest. He also challenged non-believers to be vocal about their views on religion.

The 45-year-old Brooklyn native has become known for addressing spirituality in his music. Priest’s most recent album, Planet of the Gods, was filled with religious and mystic references.

  • Such a underrated lyricist. For my money Heavy Mental was the album for me. He always dropped you a little knowledge to go with his raps. He made sure you had something to think about after the song was well over.

  • It’s about time. Come together as humans and stop religion once and for all. It’s very important here to mention that rappers like Greydon Square started the movement. Google for Greydon Square. He is probably the most intelligent person ever to rap
    on a record.

  • I’ve been saying this sh*t for the longest. Religion is the oldest form of gang sh*t. You’re always beefing with someone. A person’s relationship with God ain’t got sh*t to do with what church you go to. A relationship with God is personal. I find it hard to believe that anybody would be denied entrance into heaven if they worshipped at a mosque instead of a Baptist church. What matters is the soul of the person. And even if you don’t believe in God, that’s a relationship you’re choosing to NOT have with God. It ain’t got sh*t to do with me. That’s the individual’s choice. Religion be on some serious gang sh*t sometimes….

    Unfortunatley , religions like Christianity refuse to check their own eccentrics (evangelists, apologists, etc) that are making the rest of them look bad…..
