John Calvin (1509-1564)
Let it stand, therefore, as an indubitable truth, which no engines can shake, that the mind of man is so entirely alienated from the righteousness of God that he cannot conceive, desire, or design any thing but what is wicked, distorted, foul, impure, and iniquitous; that his heart is so thoroughly envenomed by sin that it can breathe out nothing but corruption and rottenness; that if some men occasionally make a show of goodness, their mind is ever interwoven with hypocrisy and deceit, their soul inwardly bound with the fetters of wickedness.
Who will venture to place the authority of Copernicus above that of the Holy Spirit?

Maybe the Christian faith is under more attack (by the adversary through the unbelievers) than any other faith because it is the "right one": the one faith that poses the greatest and maybe the only real threat to the adversary.

In a sense, it's a compliment," he told reporters. "They're not a Christian, they're still a Jew. They've just found another part of themselves. I thought I was being kind ... Evidently I'm in error, I apologize for that.
George W Bush: Let's Fund These Guys!
"We need to have mentoring programs energized by government, paid for by government, but who exist not because of government. Teen Challenge is a way to get people off drugs and alcohol. Teen Challenge is a faith-based program that changes people's hearts."
Rabbi David Sapperstein: Keep Them Private
"They engage in activities aimed at bringing them [clients] to Jesus.
That's fine, but it shouldn't be done with government money."

|Rev Tim Chaffey and Jason Lisle, PhD
Co-authors of Old Earth Creationism on Trial: The Verdict is In
Since the Bible undisputedly teaches a young earth, when someone claims that scientific evidence proves otherwise, we can be certain they are mistaken.
|Rev R H Charles
[Those who oppose capitol punishment and war] are moral perverts and degenerates; they have lost the capacity for righteous indignation.
For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible.
Common sense ... [is] that which tells you that the world is flat.
There is advertising on beer, trucks and on the floors of grocery stores, so why not advertise Jesus?
Hell is God's great compliment to the reality of human freedom and dignity of human choice.
Woman is a necessary evil, a natural temptation, a desirable calamity, a domestic peril, a deadly fascination, and a painted ill.
The slave should be resigned to his lot, in obeying his master he is obeying God.
Every trace of the old philosophy and literatureof the ancient world has vanished from the face of the earth.

In a state where the majority of people are Catholic, the church will require that legal existence be denied to error, and that if religious minorities exist, they shall have only a de facto existence
without opportunity to spread their unbeliefs.
Minneapolis, Minnesota, Fire Chief
I think it was something of a miracle.

NOTE: We are investigating the (very high) likelihood that this is a phony quote -- a misquote, actually. -- editors
Every woman ought to be filled with shame at the thought that she is a woman.

Hillary Clinton Did Not Say This:
"It saddens me that a historic event like this is being misconstrued by a small but vocal group of critics trying to spread the notion that the UN gathering is really the work of radicals and atheists bent on destroying our families."
-- Hillary Rodham Clinton: from Andrew Browne, "China, UN Seek to Put Conference Back on Track" (Reuters: September 4, 1995)
It's not appropriate to have an atheist in here. There are ways to find out whether they are believers or not.
No atheist, as such, can be a true friend, an affectionate relation, or a loyal subject.... A disciple following his tenets would not hesitate to debauch, or, after debauching to abandon any woman.
The first rule of politics is dance with the ones that brung you.
Not all Muslims
may be terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.
This is no time to be precious about locating the exact individuals
directly involved in this particular terrorist attack.... We know who the homicidal maniacs are. They are the ones cheering and dancing right now. We should invade
their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity.
All we can do is politely ask aliens from suspect nations to leave ... while we sort the
peace-loving immigrants from the murderous fanatics....
Frankly, I'm getting a lot of great publicity.
Goldberg: Crappy Writing, Crappier Behavior
"By this point, it was clear she wasn't interested in continuing the
relationship. What publication on earth would continue a relationship with
a writer who would refuse to discuss her work with her editors? What
publication would continue to publish a writer who attacked it on TV? What
publication would continue to publish a writer who lied about it -- on
TV and to a Washington Post reporter? ...

There are no athists in the foxholes.
I proudly declare this country of ours [the United States] to be thoroughly Christian and Catholic in its very roots.
