New York, Feb 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Denzel Washington has come under barrage of criticism for placing atheists in the same bracket as sociopaths. The actor is currently promoting his new project “Safe House.”

When Washington appeared on TODAY’s show, he said that, “I read this book called ‘The Sociopath Next Door,’ and that was like my Bible, that I related to. The traits of a sociopath: No conscience, no sense of remorse, usually atheist, just always want to win, dominate…. He’s about to get waterboarded and he’s telling the guy he brought the wrong towels. He’s still trying to win.”

Despite the protests from atheists on the comment, Washington has shown no remorse about the comparison.

He also has plans to return to the Broadway. He has already bagged a Tony award for his role in the 2010 theatrical work “Fences.” He said that, “I love theater and I want to get back on stage. I’m talking with Kenny Leon (”Fences” director) now about another play. I’m producing a new film that will start shooting in April or May. I like directing, and I like acting.”

Washington has received several awards for his acting career.
