"…Fuck Reddit. I don’t want to read shit like that! I mean, these poor kids didn’t know they would spend their last day as the worst of their lives. All those happy times, when they were children, or even when they woke up that morning, they didn’t realize their last day would be spent choking on bleach and being raped repeatedly, suffocating in a dumpster. I was deeply depressed for days after reading it. I couldn’t get off the couch for two hours, Caitlin. That’s why I fucking hate Reddit.
I was raised Catholic, it’s my mom’s religion and like any good mother she said, “That’s your religion as well”… I’m joking. But you know how it is with mothers, like, “You’re my child, you were baptised so this is your religion, this is your faith.” How ironic. It’s a strange world for sure, but kind of fascinating as well. It’s like a comic book in a way, it’s hard to believe it actually exists and that people actually believe in this stuff, all the superheroes in there like the Pope. It’s hilarious to me, that the Pope is the voice of God and has these powers, he’s not just a man who takes shits every day like anyone else. He’s just a man, he’s not anything! It makes me realise how much we have to mature intellectually, spiritually, emotionally to get to a point where we’re really just focused on reality and not mysticism. I mean as an artist I can appreciate mysticism, but I’m a realist and I’m not about to go believing in my fantasies.
If you were to set up your own religion Alan Moore-style what would it be like?
KB: I guess it would be something in line with progressive humanism, where we just realise that we don’t have any divinity looking out for us so we have to look out for each other. In a way that is God, by caring for each other we’re able to create God amongst ourselves.
