My nephew Austin got married in early January 2017. They had a photographer, naturally, but they also took some video. They recently released the video and you can see it here, if you'd like. I am in there somewhere.
Terry Gross: "So when you left Mexico and were faced with a different part of the Catholic Church, did you consider going back or were you just done?"
Jorge Ramos (b. 1958): "No, I was done. I was done...once I started going to college, and once I realized that nobody really knows if there's afterlife, that there's really no explanation, no religious explanation on why children die, why children have cancer, why all the cruelty in wars happen, why all these terrible things that I've seen as a journalist. Once you realize that there's no religious explanation, then I really had no choice but to leave Catholic Church and I became an agnostic.
