Katy Kay conducted an interview with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and current Distinguished University Professor at Georgetown University, at Georgetown’s grounds.

During the BBC interview, Kay asked Fauci about his personal perspective on faith and why he decided to step away from traditional religious practice.

Fauci pointed out Dahlgren Chapel, where he was married to his wife Christine, prompting Kay to gain further insight into his current relationship with religion.

“That’s where you were married?” Kay asked.

“Yeah. Yeah,” he responded.

“It’s beautiful,” added Kay..

When the conversation shifted to his current religious practices, Fauci’s reply was firm: “No.”

“You don’t practice anymore?” Kay pressed.

“No,” Fauci confirmed.

Kay then asked him, “Why?”

“Uhh, a number of complicated reasons,” said Fauci.

“Go on. We have a whole corridor,” Kay said.

According to Fauci, his own personal ethics are enough to keep him on the right path and guide him in his life decisions.

He may as well have said: “I am God”

“First of all, I think my own personal ethics on life are—I think—enough to keep me going on the right path. And I think that there are enough negative aspects about the organizational church that you’re very well aware of. I’m not against it.”

“I identify myself as a Catholic; I was raised, I was baptized, I was confirmed, I was married in the church. My children were baptized in the church. But, as far as practicing it, it seems almost like a pro forma thing that I don’t really need to do.”


Fauci’s remarks about his faith have sparked a flurry of activity on social media.

One user wrote, “A number of complicated reasons,” he said when asked why he had stopped practicing. “First of all, becoming a messiah figure for a competing religion made it kind of AWKWARD. Plus, as the literal incarnation of The Science, I just thought it would be a bad look.”

“Why would Saint Fauci practice religion like mere mortals? After all, he is the science,” Kanekoa wrote.

Kanekoa was responding to Dr. Fauci’s claim that any criticism of him by Republicans would be equivalent to criticizing science itself, due to his status as a scientist.

“If you are trying to get at me as a public health official and a scientist, you’re really attacking, not only Dr. Anthony Fauci, you are attacking science,” Fauci said during an interview with MSNBC.

In another interview with CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan, Dr. Fauci said that “it’s easy to criticize, but they’re really criticizing science, because I represent science,” he said. “That’s dangerous.”
