Hollywood legend Mark Wahlberg put the industry to shame on Ash Wednesday as he told NBC’s “Today” show, “I do not deny my faith.”
The statement came during an interview where he wore the ash on his forehead, which is given to mark the first day of Lent in the Catholic church, as well as a handful of other denominations.
Wahlberg told anchor Savannah Guthrie, “It’s a balance. I don’t want to jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith, that’s an even bigger sin. It’s not popular in my industry.”
Part of the reason he was on the show was to promote the Catholic meditation, prayer, and sleep app “Hallow.”
Additionally, Wahlberg said, “(Faith) it’s everything.. It’s afforded me so many things, God didn’t come to save the saints, He came to save the sinners.”
“We’ve all had things and issues in our lives. We want to be better versions of ourselves, and through focusing my faith, it’s allowed me to do that,” Wahlberg explained.
As we reported in October 2022, Wahlberg discussed in an interview his decision to move to swing state Nevada.
Wahlberg appeared to take some shots at California’s Dem Gov. Gavin Newsom as he said that he had moved to the golden state “many years ago to pursue acting and I’ve only made a couple of movies in the entire time that I was there.”
“So, to be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams whether it be my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, my younger son as a golfer, this made a lot more sense for us,” Wahlberg explained.
It was reported yesterday that Wahlberg sold his Los Angeles, California home for less than he had initially requested by still for a substantial amount.
Wahlberg discussed the move with Guthrie, who said she was giving up Instagram for Lent, and said that his teenage kids were busy with their new life there.
“It’s a balance,” Mark Wahlberg told @SavannahGuthrie of his practice of discussing religion. “I don’t want to jam it down anybody’s throat, but I do not deny my faith." https://t.co/ijCgDGhBi1 pic.twitter.com/W6h0uXvT1j— TODAY (@TODAYshow) February 22, 2023

Those pesky Christians…..a thorn in the side of the comrades, here in Satana.
So he’s the one. So why did he just move to California? That doesn’t even make sense.
Don’t buy it.
He is a convicted felon, people can change.
He is against private ownership of firearms and wanted Charlton Heston to die when Heston was president of the NRA.
No I don’t buy his shtick
