Malcolm X grew up in a heavily Christian family. Although his father, Reverend Earl Little was a preacher, Malcolm had no interest in Religion. Indeed, he states
"Even at a young age, I just couldn't believe in the Christian concept of Jesus as someone divine" (Haley5). At this point in his life, Malcolm clearly rejected his family's faith for he was certain that Christianity did no good to his father because of the high authority and violence he had.
