Religious Quotes A-Z by Author
Economies are supposed to serve human ends.. not the other way round. We
forget at our peril that markets make a good servant, a bad master and a worse
Lovins - Economy
Jesus, as a philosopher is wonderful. There's
no greater role model, in my view, than
Jesus Christ. It's just a shame that most
of the people who follow him and call themselves
Christians act nothing like him.
Maher - Jesus
Time Magazine has to change its name to
God Weekly. This week, Mary is on the cover
again. In the last two years, Time has put
out: "The Secrets of the Nativity",
"The God Gene", "Faith, God
and the Oval Office", "The Bible
and the Apocalypse", "Who Was
Moses?", "What Jesus Saw",
"Why Did Jesus Have to Die?",
"Jesus in 2000." If Jesus gets
any more free press, he's going to start
thinking he's Paris Hilton. Look, I understand
we have a lot of Christians in this nation,
but how about a little equal time? "Vishnu
to Ganesh: Drop Dead". And "Is
There No Pleasing Zeus?"
Maher - Jesus
I'm the guy who thinks religion is bad and
drugs are good. I think children aren't
innocent, god doesn't write books, and Jesus
wasn't a republican.
Maher - Republican
If you have a few hundred followers and
you let some of them molest children, they
call you a cult leader. If you have a billion,
they call you Pope.
Maher - Criticism
No one is born hating another person because
of the color of his skin, or his background,
or his religion. People must learn to hate,
and if they can learn to hate, they can
be taught to love, for love comes more naturally
to the human heart than its opposite.
Mandela - Learning
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature,
the heart of a heartless world, just as
it is the spirit of a spiritless situation.
It is the opium of the people. The abolition
of religion as the illusory happiness of
the people is required for their real happiness.
The demand to give up the illusion about
its condition is the demand to give up a
condition which needs illusions.
Marx - Religion
Political economy regards the proletarian
like a horse, he must receive enough to
enable him to work. It does not consider
him, during the time when he is not working,
as a human being. It leaves this to criminal
law, doctors, religion, statistical tables,
politics, and the beadle.
Marx - Religion
Class - Economy
I believe that religion, generally speaking,
has been a curse to mankind that
its modest and greatly overestimated services
on the ethical side have been more than
overcome by the damage it has done to clear
and honest thinking.
L. Mencken - Thinking
The most curious social convention of the
great age in which we live is the one to
the effect that religious opinions should
be respected. Its evil effects must be plain
enough to everyone. All it accomplishes
is (a) to throw a veil of sanctity about
ideas that violate every intellectual decency,
and (b) to make every theologian a sort
of chartered libertine. No doubt it is mainly
to blame for the appalling slowness with
which really sound notions make their way
in the world.
L. Mencken - Evil
There's a gullible side to the American
people. They can be easily misled. Religion
is the best device used to mislead them.
Moore - America
Pray for our military men and women who
are, striving to do what is right also for
this country, that our leaders, our national
leaders are sending them out on a task that
is from God. That is what we have to make
sure we are praying for: that there is a
plan, and that that plan is God's plan..
So bless them with your prayers. (said in
a speech to graduating ministry students
Palin - America
I might add that in small towns, we don't
quite know what to make of a candidate who
lavishes praise on working people when they
are listening, and then talks about how
bitterly they cling to their religion and
guns when those people aren't listening.
(talking about Barack
Obama at the Republican convention speech
Palin - Politicians
When I was a kid I used to pray every night
for a new bicycle. Then I realized that
the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole
one and asked Him to forgive me.
Philips - Funny
Russia does not want confrontation of any
kind. And we will not take part in any kind
of "holy alliance".
Putin - Russia
On the whole, my
family had always adopted a reserved
attitude toward Zionism; my great-uncle
Edmond had acted on his own in generously
supporting Jewish Palestine, for reasons
more humanitarian and religious than political.
But the devastation caused by the war and
the extermination of six million Jews radically
changed all of our former attitudes. The
idea of a Jewish homeland acquired an intense
emotional appeal; I myself became an ardent
de Rothschild - Jewish
Rights - War
Any religion or philosophy which is not
based on a respect for life is not a true
religion or philosophy.
Schweitzer - Life
I love all religions, but I am in love with
Teresa - Religion
In religion and politics, people's beliefs
and convictions are in almost every case
gotten at second hand, and without examination.
Twain - Religion
If the statistics are right, the Jews
constitute but one percent of the human
race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of
star dust lost in the blaze of the Milky
Way. Properly the Jew ought hardly to be
heard of, but he is heard of, has always
been heard of. He is as prominent on the
planet as any other people, and his commercial
importance is extravagantly out of proportion
to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions
to the world's list of great names in literature,
science, art, music, finance, medicine,
and abstruse learning are also away out
of proportion to the weakness of his numbers.
Twain - Religion
Race - Power
