After getting his start on Saturday Night Live, Rob Schneider took to the big screen and has acted in nearly 100 films. However, Schneider has seen “Hollywood’s immoral monopoly” and recently committed to making more wholesome movies—thanks to his new faith in God.

There are “no movies that I’ve ever made that my wife will let my kids see,” the actor told Christian Headlines.

Actor Rob Schneider Is ‘Open to God’s Will,’ Living Out New Faith

Schneider recently converted to Catholicism and is already making some life and career changes. Amidst reflection, he told Christian Headlines, “I don’t know if I’m going to do the same stuff I’ve done. I don’t know what I’m going to do moving forward…I just don’t know if I’d use the same words or foul language again. I think there’s a more eloquent way to express yourself than I have.”

Over the past months, he has learned more about the ways of Christ. “It is forgiveness itself that is the gift that we give ourselves because it frees us as Christ intends for all of us to be free,” he said. “For his gift of ultimate and unlimited forgiveness is indeed the gift for all humanity.”

In an Instagram post mentioning his newfound faith, Schneider said, “I am a new convert to Catholicism, I offer my apology for my lack of Christ’s forgiveness to my fellow man.” He continued to extend apologies to specific people and groups, without naming names.

The actor said that he has reflected on the dozens of movies he’s made. Many have questionable content—including strong language. “My priest has been very forgiving of all the terrible words I’ve used,” he said, smiling.

Schneider and his wife, Patricia, have young children, and he said that there are “no movies that I’ve ever made that my wife will let my kids see. So, I said, ‘Well, I better start making some movies that they can see.'”

Schneider Has Turned to More Wholesome Acting Roles

“I think it’s important to have an alternative to…Hollywood’s immoral monopoly,” said Schneider. “There seems to be in show business in general an indoctrination into an ideology that most Americans find very loony.”

In the animated series “Chip Chilla,” Schneider plays Chum Chum Chilla, Chip’s dad. This “comedic, pre-school series is available for streaming on Bendkey.” The show follows a chinchilla named Chip as his “deeply loving” family learns life lessons together through homeschooling activities.

“It’s teaching American children that, hey, this is an incredible country—how we got here, it was because of the people who were here before us, and they did some incredible things,” Schneider said. “[America] has been a bastion of freedom and an example of freedom for the world. And I think that it’s high time that there is an entertainment project that celebrates America.”
