... Judea and Samaria ...
I know there are some people that are very worried about the faith based initiative that the president supports. And most of the distress is about that, "We don't want the federal government coming into our business." Well, my answer to that is don't accept the money. But I see it as a great opportunity to bring God back into the public institutions of the country. God has been removed from all our public institutions. And our way to bring him back into these institutions and do it where -- and, and, and uniting, and a way of standing up and rebuking this notion of separation of church and state that has been imposed upon us over the last 40 or 50 years. You see, I don't believe there is a separation of church and state. I think the Constitution is very clear. We have the right and the freedom to exercise our religion wherever we are at any time we choose to do so. The only separation is that there will not be a government church. But we should never ever be limited in our ability to exercise our religion no matter what it is anywhere we choose to do it. We have an opportunity to once again get back into the public arena. The reason that all these social programs have failed, in my opinion, is they are social government programs, they are impersonal. They don't start with the right world view: the [idea?] that man is sinful and the redemption of man is through Jesus Christ or if you're Jewish through practicing your religion -- the [part?] that we need to get back in.
[Believers] are told, "You can go in the church ... and stay in it, but if you stick your head out and you say anything that reflects your worldview, we're gonna knock your head off." And they do. And they come after me like you wouldn't believe. I'm the most investigated man in America. Especially when we impeached Bill Clinton.... If I wasn't walking with the Lord, I would have been destroyed. I was totally consumed with holding this man accountable, because what he was doing was not just, in the secular world, undermining the rule of law. He was undermining everything that I believe in and everything that I have been working for. And he was standing for the wrong worldview.
Don't send your kids to Baylor. And don't send your kids to [Texas] A&M... Texas A&M used to be a conservative university. It's lost all of its conservatism.... My daughter went there. You know, she had horrible experiences with coed dorms and guys who spent the weekends in the rooms with girls.
Barrier: Wants C-SPAN to Cover Hypocrisy
"Jesus told his followers not to pray in the public square 'as the hypocrites' do, but rather 'enter into thy closet, and when thou has shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret,' Mr. DeLay not only wants to pray in public, he wants C-SPAN and the nightly news to cover it!"

minds of the people. It is a war over ideas. And someday soon, I believe, a winner will emerge and the loser will fade from memory. For now, the outcome is very much in doubt.

be any to favour his fatherless children.

I can only be as good as [the audience members] at acknowledging and owning the information that's coming through ... and sometimes, nobody comes through.... One of the things that I've learned is that I am not an operator and I can't dial direct, ... and even if I do make the connection with the person they want to hear from, there's no guarantee that they're going to come through and tell them what they want to hear.
Even more precious is his Edward writes, "I'm always saying that it is not the spirits who are getting it wrong; it's more likely that I am misinterpreting their messages.
Guidelines: How to Help John's Cold Reading
Validation is important! Since John does not know your friends and relatives, it is very important you give feedback. A simple nod of the head, a yes or no answer goes a long way in a reading. Please don't give more information than John asks for.
[The Deists] wholly cast off the Christian religion, and are professed infidels. They are not like the Heretics, Arians, Socinians, and others, who own the Scriptures to be the word of God, and hold the Christian religion to e the true religion, but only deny these and these fundamental doctrines of the Christian religion: they deny the whole Christian religion. Indeed they own the being of a God; but deny that Christ was the son of God, and say he was a mere cheat; and so they say all the prophets and apostles were; and they deny the whole Scripture. They deny that any of it is the word of God. Theyd eny any revealed religion, or any word of God at all, and say that God has givehn mankind no other light to walk by but their own reason.

The Supreme Court has made God unconstitutional.
The existence of the devil isn't an opinion, something to take or leave as you wish.... [The devil] deceives men, making them believe that you find happiness in money, in power, in carnal desire. He fools men by persuading them that they do not need God and that they are self-sufficient.
Other writers of history recorded the fighting of wars waged for the sake of children and country and other possessions. But our narrative of the government of God will record in ineffaceable letters the most peaceful wars waged in behalf of the peace of the soul.

[Gays and lesbians are] left out of my program to the extent that their own state doesn't include them. I cannot get into a position in this program, which has a one-and-a-half or two-year life, start second-guessing what the state of New York or the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or the state of Virginia or New Jersey, how they treat same-sex partners, domestic live-ins, etc. I simply say this: What does your state law say about who is eligible? If your state law makes you eligible, I will honor state law. If it doesn't, I go with the state. Otherwise, Tim, I would find myself getting sued in every state by people claiming that I'm not following how the state distributes money. I can't get into that local battle. I've got to rely on state law.

I was born black, I attended all Negro schools including college, I grew up in the segregated South during Jim Crow. If anybody knows a racist, I do. Pat Buchanan ain't no racist.
Well, from 1969 to 1984, until he died of AIDS, a teacher and I were very good friends. He even attended celebrations at my home, and I have to admit I even went with him to gay bars once in a while. So I know a homophobe when I see one. Pat Buchanan ain't no homophobe, believe me.
The Freedom which Christianity gives, is a Freedom from the Bondage of Sin and Satan, and from the Domination of Men's Lusts and Passions and inordinate Desires; but as to their outward Condition, whatever that was before, whether bond or free, their being baptised, and becoming Christians, makes no manner of Change in it.
Thus, for a theory to qualify as a scientific theory, it must be supported by events
or processes that can be observed to occur, and the theory must be useful in
predicting the outcome of future natural phenomena or laboratory experiments.
An additional limitation usually imposed is that the theory be capable of
falsification; that is, one must be able to conceive some experiment the failure of
which would disprove the theory. It is on the basis of such criteria that most
evolutionists insist that creation be refused consideration as a possible
explanation for origins. Creation has not been witnessed by human observers, it
cannot be tested scientifically, and as a theory it is non-falsifiable.
What we call creation science makes no reference to the Bible. It says there are two possible explanations for the origin of the universe and living things: theistic, supernatural creation by an intelligent being, or nontheistic, mechanistic evolutionary theory that posits no goal and no purpose in the evolutionary process. We just happen to be here.
Eugenie Scott: They Know They're Altering Facts
"I think what bothers me so much of the time is they take the data and theory and distort it. They must know they're distorting."
"Creationists contend that evolution can never be established since it was not
witnessed by human observers. But then, neither have the early big bang and live
dinosaurs been observed. Humans cannot observe electrons inside atoms or quarks
inside atomic nuclei. Yet these are all phenomena that are (1) supported by events or
processes that have been observed to occur, (2) useful in predicting the outcome of
future natural phenomena or laboratory experiments, and (3) described by falsifiable
theories. Certainly, evolution also meets Gish's criteria.... [It] was even
falsifiable at the time Darwin and Wallace first made their proposal of the natural
Check out Al Gore's More Reasonable Sayings
Those who are quick to feel disrespected often have a spiritual vacuum in their lives, because they feel disconnected to the love of their Father in Heaven.
I strongly believe in the separation of church and state. But freedom of religion does not mean freedom from religion, there is a better way.

The United States has an absolute, uncompromising commitment to Israel's security and an absolute conviction that Israel alone must decide the steps necessary to ensure that security. That is Israel's prerogative. We accept that. We endorse that. Whatever Israel decides cannot, will not, will never, not ever, alter our fundamental commitment to her security.
We can build a collective civic space large enough for all our separate identities, that we can be E Pluribus Unum -- Out of One, Many.
Hear Al Gore admit he's clueless about US history.
Johnson: Erroneous and Intolerant View
"Whether he intended to or not, Mr. Gore is unfairly connecting a lack of belief in a god with antisocial, criminal behavior. In those twenty-seven words, he just marginalized and insulted the ten percent of Americans -- over 26 million people -- who have no religious belief, and describe themselves as atheists, nonbelievers, freethinkers or skeptics of some kind.
Barrier: The Next 'Willie Horton'
"In effect, Gore is unwittingly characterizing a large segment of the US population as the next 'Willie Horton.' This is unfortunate and counterproductive to any dialogue between those who 'believe' and those who don't."
As a Christian I have hope not just for this life but for Heaven and the
life to come. And many of those people who died this past week are in
Heaven right now. And they wouldn't want to come back; it's so glorious
and so wonderful. And that's the hope for all of us who put our faith in God. I
pray that you will have this hope in your heart.
We are more united than
never know when we too will be called into eternity. I doubt if even one
of those people who got on those planes or walked into the World Trade
Center or the Pentagon last Tuesday morning thought it would be the last
day of their lives. They didn't -- it didn't occur to them. And that's
why each of us needs to face our own spiritual need and commit ourselves
to God and his will now.

freedom from religion.
I go and I keep friends with [Abe] Rosenthal at the New York Times and people of that sort, you know. And all -- I mean, not all the Jews, but a lot of the Jews are great friends of mine, they swarm around me and are friendly to me because they know that I'm friendly with Israel. But they don't know how I really feel about what they are doing to this country. And I have no power, no way to handle them, but I would stand up if under proper circumstances.
The difference between the people of Israel and the nations of the world is an essential one. The Jew by his source and in his very essence is entirely good. The goy, by his source and in his very essence is completely evil. This is not simply a matter of religious distinction, but rather of two completely different species.
I despise the proper constructions and cases, because I think it very unfitting that the words of the celestial oracle should be restricted by the rules of Donatus [a well-known grammarian].
The people will have no need to change their place of concourse; where of old they were wont to sacrifice cattle to demons, thither let them continue to resort on the day of the Saint to whom the Church is dedicated, and slay their beasts, no longer as a sacrifice to demons, but for a social meal in honour of Him whom they now worship.
Cursed be the man who holds back his sword from shedding blood.
From the most foul well of indifferentism flows that absurd and erroneous opinion, or rather delirium, of liberty of conscience.
