Religion

She was born into a born-again Pentecostal Christian family.

She has said, “I was raised in a real spiritual, Bible Belt household. So I developed my own cynicism because there are always things in the Bible that really bum me out…. I became really obsessed with the Kids in the Hall as a kid, and they had Scott Thompson, who’s like the one gay member. I remember having this feeling that ‘Oh, Scott Thompson isn’t going to heaven? How could that be?’ That was my first big tipoff that something wasn’t quite right with dogmatic Christianity. And then I was just trying to undo it at the age of 12.”
