Wishing she could be like her born-again brother Todd, Carrie would have been “happy to be shown that there is a God.” She believed that believers feel happier than even the most enthusiastic of agnostics.
Raised “Protestant Light” by her mother and as a secular Jew by her father, Fisher remained tolerant of religious perspectives. When a Church of England advertisement was banned from being played before a showing of Star Wars, she stated: I have no idea why they would do that... People should get a life.
Concerning her own rocky journey, Fisher once explained: Sometimes you can only find Heaven by backing away slowly from Hell.
