‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Rev Mordecai Fowler Ham (1877–1961)
Baptist pastor and traveling preacher from Bowling Green, Kentucky, responsible for the conversion of the then-future evangelist Billy Graham; outspoken opponent of Blacks, Jews, and Roman Catholics; specialized in 'confrontational' style of preaching wherein he'd identify an enemy of the faith (bootleggers, Liberals, nebulous rings of Blacks, Jews, or Roman Catholics plotting to destroy Protestant America, presidential canddate Al Smth, etc) and launch an attack

If you vote for Al Smith, you're voting against Christ and you will all be damned.

Menendez: Americans delay their damnation

Back in 1928 when the Democrats nominated New York Governor Al Smith, a Catholic, for president, a lot of Protestant clergy went nearly berserk to prevent a papal takeover of the White House. In Oklahoma City an influential pastor mounted his pulpit at the city’s largest church and warned his members: "If you vote for Al Smith, you'll go to hell and you'll all be damned." I guess very few congregants actually thought their eternal salvation was dependent on their presidential vote. At least they couldn't say they weren't warned by the Reverend Mordecai Fowler Ham. A reporter was in the congregation that day, and he made sure the warning made the Monday newspapers. But Oklahomans apparently didn't want to go to hell and they voted heavily for Hoover, as did most Americans. Whereupon the country went to hell a year later.
-- Albert J Menendez, referring to the Great Depression, which struck during the watch of Smith's Republican opponent, Herbert Hoover, in "Address by ARL Research Director Albert J. Menendez" presented to the National Education Association Annual Conference, Los Angeles, California June 29, 2005.

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Katherine Harris (b 1957)
Former member of the US House of Representatives (2003-07); former Secretary of State of Florida; Lost the race for one of Florida's US Senate seats in 2007; Harris presided over the contested US presidential election in Florida (2000) amidst allegations of conflicts of interest and partisan, unethical behavior on her part

Katherine Harris[I]f you are not electing Christians then in essence you are going to legislate sin.
-- Katherine Harris, interview with the Florida Baptist Witness (August 24, 2006)

And if we are the ones not actively involved in electing those godly men and women and if people aren’t involved in helping godly men in getting elected than we’re going to have a nation of secular laws. That’s not what our founding fathers intended and that’s certainly isn’t what God intended.
-- Katherine Harris, interview with the Florida Baptist Witness (August 24, 2006), excerpted from Austin Cline, "Katherine Harris: God, not People, Chooses the Rulers"

The Bible says we are to be salt and light. And salt and light means not just in the church and not just as a teacher or as a pastor or a banker or a lawyer, but in government and we have to have elected officials in government and we have to have the faithful in government and over time, that lie we have been told, the separation of church and state, people have internalized, thinking that they needed to avoid politics and that is so wrong because God is the one who chooses our rulers.
-- Katherine Harris, interview with the Florida Baptist Witness (August 24, 2006), excerpted from Austin Cline, "Katherine Harris: God, not People, Chooses the Rulers"

They can say that abortion is alright. They can vote to sustain gay marriage. And that will take western civilization, indeed other nations because people look to our country as one nation as under God and whenever we legislate sin and we say abortion is permissible and we say gay unions are permissible, then average citizens who are not Christians, because they don’t know better, we are leading them astray and it’s wrong.
-- Katherine Harris, interview with the Florida Baptist Witness (August 24, 2006), excerpted from Austin Cline, "Katherine Harris: God, not People, Chooses the Rulers"

John Lewis ‘Johnny’ Hart (1931–2007)
American comic strip artist; philanthropist

Johnny HartJews and Muslims who don't accept Jesus will burn in Hell.
-- Johnny Hart, quoted from Claire Noland, “Johnny Hart, 76; Created ‘BC’ Comic Strip,” Los Angeles Times (April 9, 2007); quoted from Wikipedia, “Johnny Hart” (April 6, 2008). To inspire a great man say things like this takes religion. -- PAM Editor

Homosexuality is the handiwork of Satan.
-- Johnny Hart, quoted from Claire Noland, “Johnny Hart, 76; Created ‘BC’ Comic Strip,” Los Angeles Times (April 9, 2007); quoted from Wikipedia, “Johnny Hart” (April 6, 2008)

The end of the world is approaching, maybe by the year 2010.

Johnny Hart Did Not Say This:

Clam to Tortise cab driver: "Okay, what'll it be?" Tortise: "Three clams." Clam: "Okay, wait right there, I'll go get the kidsl" (Paraphrase of BC strip from at least 30 years ago, as remembered by Cliff Walker. These were the good ol' days!) And in the "Wizard of Id" department: Spook to monster: "Where did YOU come from!?" Monster: "The Wizard put me together from spare parts." Spook: "Okay. What's your name, then?" Monster: "Abra Cadaver." (Again, paraphrase as remembered by Cliff Walker from memory.)It's time we stop letting the forces of secularism and atheism trample all over Christianity. We must stand up and proudly, justly proclaim "Christians got rights!"
-- Satire. This is an example of what happens when we do the best we can but still get taken in by clever fakes! Who would have thought that the complex labyrinths of links leading from the Objective: Landover Baptist Shutdown page eventually lead to such web sites as C Dennis McKinsey's Biblical Errancy, Internet Infidels, and the like? It's entirely legitimate (albeit low-class) for a satire page to spoof Hart by "quoting" him as having said something like this, but for a quotations reference (such as ours) to quote him as having said this constitutes slander: there is a big, big difference! For having fallen for this little joke, we humbly and profusely apologize to Johnny Hart and to our readers. Although we might strongly disagree with some of what a person says and does, to slander any fellow human is among the last things we would ever wish to do.

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.) Brother Jack Harvey
Tabernacle Baptist Church, Killeen, Texas

The leaders of our country are going to give count to God with how they deal with witchcraft because our precious single soldiers are going to be involved in it if they allow it on military forts.
-- Rev Jack Harvey, overreacting to Gov. George W Bush's insistence that Wicca is not a religion, and that military bases should not allow Wiccans the same freedoms that Christians enjoy, quoted from Peggy Wehmeyer, "Witches in Combat Boots," from ABCNEWScom, June 23, 1999

I've heard they drink blood, eat babies. They have fires, they probably cook them. This is unbelievably wrong.
-- Rev Jack Harvey, quoted from Barry Shlachter, "Bothered and bewildered; Wiccans at Hood shrug off media hubbub," Star-Telegram, August 7, 1999

... in case a warlock tries to grab one of our kids.
-- Rev Jack Harvey, explaining why he has instructed "at least one member" of his congregation to bring a handgun to the Tabernacle Baptist Church worship services, quoted from Barry Shlachter, "Bothered and bewildered; Wiccans at Hood shrug off media hubbub," Star-Telegram, August 7, 1999

This is war.
-- Rev Jack Harvey, threatening to run Wiccans off the military bases, quoted from Barry Shlachter, "Bothered and bewildered; Wiccans at Hood shrug off media hubbub," Star-Telegram, August 7, 1999

Sorry. I get very emotional about this.
-- Rev Jack Harvey, excusing himself for what the reporter described as his "hell-broth boil," quoted from Barry Shlachter, "Bothered and bewildered; Wiccans at Hood shrug off media hubbub," Star-Telegram, August 7, 1999

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Orrin Hatch (b 1934)
US Senator from Utah

Orrin HatchCapital punishment is our society's recognition of the sanctity of human life.
-- Orrin Hatch, quoted from David Milsted, The Cassell Dictionary of Regrettable Quotations (1999)

Mentioning "God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is no different in kind than allowing government salaried Chaplains for the military or for the Congress, or including the official motto, "In God We Trust," on our currency.
-- Orrin Hatch, equating the fulfillment of our Constitutional Guarantee of access to religion in the case of sequestered military personnel deprived of the normal means of religious expression with the acts of gratuitously advertising religion on money and forcing children both to confess religious faith as well as to be indoctrinated in the notion of religion's superiority over the lack thereof, in yet another demonstration the sheer desperation demonstrated by those who would force children to practice religion, from a statement on his web site, "Hatch Disappointed in 9th Circuit Decision Not to Revisit 'Outrageous' Pledge Of Allegiance Ban," the title itself being falsehood (nobody banned the Pledge itself, only the Pledge as it was modified during the McCarthy Era. Quoted from a statement on Hatch's web site (summer, 2002).

Orrin HatchAs the well-reasoned dissent by Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain points out, "If reciting the Pledge is truly a 'religious act' in violation of the Establishment Clause, then so is the recitation of the Constitution itself, the Declaration of Independence, the Gettysburg Address, the National Motto or the singing of the National Anthem." Judge O’Scannlain points out that the majority decision means that 9.6 million public school students in nine western states are banned from voluntarily reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
-- Orrin Hatch, further displaying the desperation of his position (and that of numerous crooked politicians) by reciting O'Scannlain's lies that the Constitution contains religious language, that the Declaration is an official document or is ever recited by anybody, or that anybody but advanced students of music or history (or opportunistic "Christian-Nation" activists who, were it not for these two words in the last verse, would surely oppose the Anthem as "secular") even knows about the penultimate line of the fourth verse of the National Anthem; furthermore, the students are not banned from voluntarily reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, which they may do any time of the day, so long as the student so doing does not "have the floor" (so to speak) when so doing; in other words, command the attention (be the center of attention) of the classroom or assembly. Quoted from a statement on Hatch's web site (summer, 2002).

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Jesse Helms (1921–2008)
Republican Senator from North Carolina (1973–2003)

Jesse HelmsI've been portrayed as a caveman by some. That's not true. I'm a conservative progressive, and that means I think all men are equal, be they slants, beaners, or niggers.
-- Jesse Helms, North Carolina Progressive, February 6, 1985, quoted from the Democratic Alliance, "Yes, They Really Said It!"

Nevertheless, if the Administration insists on funding these programs I shall not stand in the way, so long as you agree to the following conditions: 1) that no funds be obligated to any affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) in Haiti, including PROFAMIL; and 2) that no funds be provided directly or indirectly to any group whose programs include producing material intended to be used in a voodoo ceremony ... AID is funding programs that endorse or legitimize what amounts to witchcraft."
-- Jesse Helms, quoted in Mat Honan, "Jesse Helms' Political Voodoo," Mojo, March 23, 1999

This bill attempts to make sure that President Clinton is not allowed to do by Executive Order what Congress has declined to enact in the past two congressional sessions namely, to treat homosexuals as a special class protected under various titles of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
-- Jesse Helms, introducing an anti-gay bill in January, 1999, quoted from Rhonda Smith, "Jesse Helms Introduces Anti-Gay Bill," The Washington Blade, February 26, 1999

Your tax dollars are being used to pay for grade school classes that teach our children that CANNIBALISM, WIFE-SWAPPING, and the MURDER of infants and the elderly are acceptable behavior.
-- Jesse Helms, part of the text of a fundraising mailer sent out by the Helms campaign, quoted from House of Crooks

The Lord did not make me impossible of error. All I've had to offer you is the total dedication in serving you as best I know how. And I've always leveled with you, and always will, knowing full well that everyone will not agree with me.
-- Jesse Helms, campaign debate, News & Observer, July 30, 1984

Austrian-born German Nazi leader

Therefore, I am convinced that I am acting as the agent of our Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the Lord's work.
-- Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

Secular schools can never be tolerated because such a school has no religious instruction and a general moral instruction without a religious foundation is built on air; consequently, all character training and religion must be derived from faith.... We need believing people.
-- Adolf Hitler, April 26, 1933, from a speech made during negotiations leading to the Nazi-Vatican Concordat of 1933, quoted from the Freedom From Religion Foundation quiz, "What Do You Know About The Separation of State and Church?"

Adolf HitlerHow fortunate for leaders that men do not think (also, “What luck for rulers that men do not think”).
-- Adolf Hitler (attributed: source unknown)

We stand at the end of the Age of Reason. A new era of the magical explanation of the world is rising.
-- Adolf Hitler, quoted from Victor J Stenger, Has Science Found God? (2001)

-- Rep Alvin Holmes, saying about atheists what he dare not say about Jews ("I'm against anything Jews represent because I believe in Jesus") or Muslims ("I'm against anything Muslims represent because I believe in the God of Abraham and Isaac"), etc, regarding the flap over Judge Roy Moore's having erected a washing machine-sized monument to his own abbridgement of the Protestant listing of the first tables of stone edition of ten (or so) religious (not moral) edicts of a minority sect among the ancient Hebrew tribes; quoted from Phillip Rawls, "Atom Sculpture Awaits Place Beside Ten Commandments Monument" (AP: October 27, 2001)

Roman Catholic theologian, philosopher, and encyclopedic writer who lived in the first half of the twelfth century

How is the soul profited by the strife of Hector, the arguments of Plato, the poems of Virgil, or the elegies of Ovid, who, with others like them, are now gnashing their teeth in the prison of the infernal Babylon, under the cruet tyranny of Pluto?
-- Honorius of Autun, showing disdain for human education by opposing the revival of classic literature, in Charles Homer Haskins, The Renaissance of the 12th Century (1927), p. 96, quoted from Helen Ellerbe, The Dark Side of Christian History

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)‘Dr’Kent Hovind
American fundamentalist Christian and stumper for creationism; accredited with a phony doctorate from Patriot University, a diploma-mill which once operated in Colorado

Kent HovindWhat difference does it make?
-- ‘Dr’ Kent Hovind, in a letter to Tom Weaver (October 29, 1998) after the latter asked him if he "ever got a real degree of any sort from a legitimate institution as opposed to the diploma-mill 'Patriot University', 'accredited' by yet another phony organization," quoted from holysmoke.org

I have a standing offer of $250,000 to anyone who can give any empirical evidence (scientific proof) for evolution. My $250,000 offer demonstrates that the hypothesis of evolution is nothing more than a religious belief.
-- ‘Dr’ Kent Hovind, making a "standing offer" on his website. What's the proceedure for collecting this money? Quoted from John Stear, No Answers in Genesis.

Prove beyond reasonable doubt that the process of evolution (option 3 above, under "known options") is the only possible way the observed phenomena could have come into existence.
-- ‘Dr’ Kent Hovind, explaining on his website that one must simply "prove beyond a reasonable doubt" that "Option 3" of his list of options is "the only possible way" these things could have taken place, quoted from John Stear, No Answers in Genesis

3. The universe came into being by itself by purely natural processes (known as evolution) so that no appeal to the supernatural is needed.
-- ‘Dr’ Kent Hovind, explaining on his website that all you must do is prove that evolution is how the universe came into existence, suggesting that either (1) he doesn't understand the evolutionary process; (2) he deliberately sets out to deceive prospective claimants; (3) he intends to fool only those impressionable young fundamentalist Christians who are likely to go no further than seeing the impressive-looking $250,000 "standing offer" before they look with awe upon Hovind and consider that he therefore must be a truthful man, because $250,000 is a lot of money, quoted from John Stear, No Answers in Genesis

Since all taxpayers are being forced to fund the religion of evolution in schools and it is evolution that must be proven to be the only way our universe came into being like the textbooks say, what happens if one jury member will not vote with the rest?
-- ‘Dr’ Kent Hovind, on being asked if the committee vote must be unanimous, in a letter to Dr Barend Vlaardingerbroek, Senior Lecturer in Science Education at the University of Botswana, quoted from John Stear, No Answers in Genesis

Jack T Chick’s stereotype of the ‘angry atheist.’ The atheist is here portrayed as an intolerant science professor letting off some steam as he ejects the mild-mannered creationist student from class. (Children and impressionable teens read these things - by the millions!) 'Dr' Kent Hovind helped write the revised version of Chick's famous 'Big Daddy' tract, from whence this drawing and caricature came.In order to collect the money you must 'Prove beyond reasonable doubt that the process of evolution (The universe came into being by itself by purely natural processes (known as evolution) so that no appeal to the supernatural is needed.) is the only possible way the observed phenomena (the universe, planets, life and mankind) could have come into existence.' If you want everyone to pay for this silly theory of evolution to be taught then the burden of proof is on you.
-- ‘Dr’ Kent Hovind, in a reiteration of his offer to Dr Barend Vlaardingerbroek (with "Dr" Hovind's "grammatical and punctuation errors faithfully reproduced" says professor Vlaardingerbroek), quoted from John Stear, No Answers in Genesis, see also Buddika's 300 Creationist Lies Index

Vlaardingerbroek: Bottom of the Ethical Barrel

A publicity stunt that scrapes the bottom of the intellectual and ethical barrels.

High-profile Christian preacher; US presidential wannabe, Republican Party, of course (2008)

I have opponents in this race who do not want to change the Constitution, but I believe it's a lot easier to change the Constitution than it would be to change the word of the living god. And that's what we need to do -- to amend the Constitution so it's in God's standards rather than try to change God's standards so it lines up with some contemporary view.
-- Mike Huckabee, seeking the premier job wherein the first and foremost requirement is to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America; thank human ingenuity for the courts in this system of checks and balances and World help us if he gets elected anyway; transcribed by Positive Atheism from a broadcast of MSNBC's Morning Joe program (January 15, 2008); [MP3]

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Pope Innocent III (1161–1216)
This oxymoronically named Roman Catholic pope, whose understanding of reality epitomized the vicious disposition of the Crusades and the Christian Inquisitions, is now called ‘one of the greatest popes of the Middle Ages’ by the Catholic Encyclopedia

Pope Innocent III, riding in the Lord's CrusadesUse against heretics the spiritual sword of excommunication, and if this does not prove effective, use the material sword.
-- Pope Innocent III, reiterating the death sentence which the Christian Church had meted out to all heretics and unbelievers for many centuries and which would continue to be endorsed by Christian denominations for centuries to come, even in the twentieth century by Pope Leo XIII (attributed: source unknown)

If it shall be necessary, through sentences of excommunication against their persons and of interdict against their lands, all backsliding being put an end to, they compel them to fulfil their vows.
-- Pope Innocent III, explaining where much of the land that formerly belonged to our philosophical forebears went to: land was confiscated from any person suspected of heresy, "Bullariulii Romanum, editio Taurinensis," the Bull summoning the Crusades (December 14, 1215)

Pope Innocent IIIWe believe that the Greeks have been punished through [the Crusades] by the just judgement of God: these Greeks who have striven to rend the Seamless Robe of Jesus Christ ... Those who would not join Noah in his ark perished justly in the deluge; and these have justly suffered famine and hunger who would not receive as their shepherd the blessed Peter, Prince of the Apostles.
-- Pope Innocent III, to the Greek (Byzantine) Emperor, after sending a group of crusaders to Constantinople in 1204 in humble obedience to the edict of Christ in Luke 19:27: "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me" (the chronicler Geoffrey Villehardouin said that never since the creation of the World had so much booty been taken from a city), in G G Coulton, Inquisition and Liberty (1969), p. 164-5, quoted from Helen Ellerbe, The Dark Side of Christian History
