Christian Bale calls Moses “barbaric” and “schizophrenic”

 HOLLYWOOD (TAB) — In an interview on Friday actor Christian Bale called Moses “barbaric” and “schizophrenic,” an opinion he gathered after preparing to play the biblical character in “Exodus: Gods and Kings.” Bale said he read the Bible, the Torah, the Quran and Jonathan Kirsch’s ‘Moses: A Life’ to understand Moses, according to The Huffington Post. Kirsch said that while the multiple personalities of Moses seem to be conflicting at times, it’s possible “that we have multiple versions of Moses because the Bible is he work of multiple authors who wrote at different times and places and with entirely different motives.” Set to premiere Dec. 12, the film’s director, Ridley Scott, has spoken against religion in the past, blaming religion for most of the world’s problems in an interview with Esquire in 2012.
