Shirley MacLaine, pretending that life is a bowl of cherries.Crystals are amplifying minerals. You have a crystal in a radio -- it amplifies the sound waves. You have a crystal in a television set -- it amplifies the light waves. When you hold crystals, they amplify thought waves.

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Rev Patrick Mahoney
Director of the Christian Defense Coalition; not a resident of Alabama

Rev. Patrick Mahoney (color by Cliff Walker)It is deeply troubling to have an appointed, unelected commission remove an elected official from office. The Court of Judiciary has overturned an election and crushed the democratic process through their actions.
-- Rev Patrick Mahoney, whining about the removal of the lawbreaking judge, Roy Moore, and suggesting that election ought to tenure an official into his office (that is, that elected officials are exempt from processes of law, such as the judicial processes, under which the rest of us are burdened), in a WorldNetDaily.com "Law of the Land" column, "Alabama voters file suit to restore Moore" (November 20, 2003)

The next judges who come up for the supreme court, it's going to be a referendum here in Alabama on the Ten Commandments. And finally we'll go back to Washington and push for federal legislation to protect the posting of the Ten Commandments in public places.
-- Rev Patrick Mahoney, in CNN's "Interview With Pat Mahoney " (August 26, 2003)

Governor James and Judge Moore affirm the best ideals of America.
-- Rev Patrick Mahoney, quoted in Conrad Goeringer, "Prayer Supporters
To Rally In Alabama

Colonial preacher; Congregationalist minister

Cotton Mather, after signing a lucrative deal with ElektraThat there is a Devil is a thing doubted by none but such as are under the influence of the Devil. For any to deny the being of a Devil must be from ignorance or profaneness worse than diabolical.

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Sen. Joseph McCarthy (1908-1957)
United States Senator from Wisconsin, Republican, the leading American anti-Communist figure in the late 1940s through the mid-1950s, who began a campaign designed to discredit atheists by linking atheism to Communism; this link became the butt of anti-American remarks made by Soviet cosmonauts (e.g., Gagarin, Titov) during the early years of the Space Race

Sen. Joseph McCarthy ijn 1953 (not shown: David Schine and Roy Cohn were cropped from this photo)Today we are engaged in a final, all-out battle between communistic atheism and Christianity.
-- Sen. Joseph McCarthy, identifying the "final, all-out battle" as being between atheism and Christianity (not Communism and Capitalism or the Soviet Union and the United States) in his famous address to the Ohio County Women's Republican Club on February 9, 1950. This is the address which launched the terrifying and destructive "McCarthy Era" attacks upon many US citizens.

Short Graphic Rule

McCarthyism Arose for Want of Resistance

Sen. Joseph McCarthy was eventually condemned by the very leaders he had previously influenced with his ideas, yet those ideas continue to reign unchecked (2003)"In the early 1950s in the US, there was what was called McCarthyism and the only reason it succeeded was that there was no resistance to it. When they tried the same thing in the 1960s it instantly collapsed because people simply laughed at it so they couldn't do it. Even a dictatorship can't do everything it wants. It's got to have some degree of popular support."
-- Noam Chomsky, in Noam Chomsky, "Interview With Chomsky" (December 28, 2002), The ensuing movement solidified the American public's support the "Cold War" between the United States and the Soviet Union. On March 13, 1954, vice-president Nixon denounced McCarthy's work as "reckless talk and questionable methods."

Drug-Induced Damage Continues Today

The swollen face of Senator Joseph McCarthy, in a 1954 photo shot only one year after the above photo, shows us what heavy drug use can do to a person's body, while the Senator's wanton disregard for the laws and policies under which he agreed to serve with his fellow lawmakers, as well as the hate-filled favoritism which colored his interaction with consituents, showed everyone who has eyes to see precisely what drugs and alcohol, when consumed in such huge quantities, can do to a person's mind and especially one's moral values. -- Cliff Walker (March 25, 2002)"Many of the effects of McCarthyism continue in America to this day. These range from a widespread public distrust of atheists to such niceities as that highly effective advertising slogan promoting religion, "In God We Trust," on all US currency and coinage to the insertion of the lie "under God" into our Pledge of Allegiance. One man wreaked all this damage and much more.
     "McCarthy died from the affects of heavy, almost uncontrolled use of alcohol and narcotics within a few years of his rise to influence. Although his heavy drug and alcohol use destroyed his family, his career, and his life, the fact that his ideas, his values, and his priorities were influenced by a drug- and alcohol-clouded mind did nothing to slow their spread nor hamper their influence on public thinking!"
-- Positive Atheism Magazine, McCarthy was censured by Congress on December 2, 1954; McCarthy's polarizing of America against atheists remains evident to this day, although its effects were reduced during the 1960s through the heroic (albeit controversial) efforts of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, who managed to bring about a distinction in the public mindset between "Communist" and "atheist."

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Kelly McGinley
Alabama conservative radio talk show host

Kelly McGinley (used with permission -- Thanks!)We live in a time and a day when people call what is evil, good and what is good, evil. We live in a time when everything is turned upside-down and we live in a lawless country.
-- Kelly McGinley, explaining why it's okay for the State Supreme Court's Chief Justice to break the law, speaking at a rally in defence of the Alabama Supreme Court's Chief Justice, the conniving Judge Roy Moore, who was eventually ousted because he broke the law by erecting, under cover of darkness, a 2½-ton graven image depicting religious edicts known as (but not called) "the Ten Commandments." These sectarian ordinances were, in ancient times, inflicted upon an abjectly itinerant tribe known as the Hebrews. This clan nevertheless felt occasional ethnic pride surrounding these codes. A notable example of actual celebration is described in the tale of when their sacred texts were lost for several generations and then discovered mouldering in a box by the servant of the king (yeah, right). Though patently superstitious, the Hebrews never carved up and worshipped their Ten Commandments. And though (at times) they were strict adherents of these laws, sometimes to their own peril, the Hebrews specifically forbade themselves from inflicting these edicts upon innocent bystanders, but made a religion (if you will) of keeping pretty much to themselves. Only in the United States are these things worshipped above any thing called "God," and only by a coalition of sects described as Evangelical Christian. This behavior has never been witnessed among the Hebrews themselves. Quotation excerpted from Alvin Benn, "Moore Rally Brings Foes" (Montgomery Advertiser: May 11, 2002).

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Joyce Meyer
President of Joyce Meyer Ministries; Christian Coalition sponsor; Christian Zionist

Joyce Meyer (press photo, cleaned up by Cliff WalkerIf God is in fact separated from the government, then we can never possibly have a godly government. There's no way for America to be good if she's not godly.
-- Joyce Meyer, explaining one of the core political dogmas of antiatheist bigotry at the Christian Coalition's 2002 Rally for Solidarity with [the modern nation of] Israel, quoted from Laurie Kellman, "Christian Coalition Hosts Rally to Boost Its Profile" (Associated Press: October 12, 2002)

[The notion of separating church and state with such policies as disallowing prayer in public schools] is a deception from Satan.
-- Joyce Meyer, deceiving her listeners at the Christian Coalition's 2002 Rally for Solidarity with [the modern nation of] Israel by claiming that prayer is not allowed in public schools (only orchestrated prayer before a captive group of student participants is barred by the United States Constitution), quoted from Laurie Kellman, "Christian Coalition Hosts Rally to Boost Its Profile" (Associated Press: October 12, 2002)

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)William Miller
Founder of the New England doomsday sect known as the 'Millerites'; some Millerites later formed the Seventh Day Adventist sect

William MillerThe world will be destroyed by fire on April 3rd 1843.
-- William Miller, originally made this prophecy for 1833, but decided (when it didn't come true) that he must have been a decade out. The New York Herald published his 1843 prediction, and when a comet appeared in March his followers, the 'Millerites', began killing themselves and their families in order to get to heaven early. On 3 April thousands gathered on a hilltop overlooking Miller's home. On 4 April Miller decided the date must be 7 July, and told the faithful to dig their own graves and order coffins. He also sold them special white shrouds for the occasion. On 8 July he announced the date as 21 March 1844. On 22 March 1844 he decided it was 22 October. The 100,000 Millerites had had enough; they dispersed, and one faction formed the Church of the Seventh Day Adventists. Quoted from David Milsted, The Cassell Dictionary of Regrettable Quotations (1999).

Augustin Misago
Roman Catholic Bishop southwestern Gikongoro who, in 2000, faces a possible death sentence over his alleged role in the 1994 Rwandan genocide

Augustin MisagoDefinitely I'm convinced that behind my case there is a trial of the church.
-- Augustin Misago, quoted from http://i.am/not_a_crook

They say the Catholic church played a big role in the genocide... and now they have me, a bishop, as proof, a prize to say there, that's what they did.
-- Augustin Misago, quoted from http://i.am/not_a_crook

But I will plead not guilty until death. I will plead not guilty until there is proof to the contrary.
-- Augustin Misago, quoted from http://i.am/not_a_crook

They didn't do this because they have facts, because they have solid proof against me. They did it because the president spoke and now they must prove that he was right and that is my great worry.
-- Augustin Misago, quoted from http://i.am/not_a_crook

They say that "at that moment you didn't do this, you didn't do that", but at that time I didn't have the means. I didn't have an army to stop the killings. I'm not Moses, I can't do miracles.

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Roy Moore
Former Alabama Judge who erected, in full view of his courtroom and despite a ruling against him by Judge Charles Price, a hand-carved replica of an abridged version of the Protestant listing of the first stone tablets of the Hebrew Ten Commandments; he then installed a 5,280-pound granite statue of a modernized "condensed version" of these same ancient religious edicts in the front lobby of the state court house; he was then removed from his position as Alabama Supreme Court Justice for his unlawful activities as a government representative promotion of religion on the job and his continued arrogance regarding the whole issue

Judge Roy MooreThe monument serves to remind the appellate courts and judges of the circuit and district courts of this state and members of the bar who appear before them as well as the people of Alabama who visit the Alabama Judicial Building of the truth stated in the preamble of the Alabama Constitution, that in order to establish justice we must invoke "the favor and guidance of Almighty God."
-- Judge Roy Moore, upon quitetly ordering the placement in the Judiciary Building of a huge stone monument containing an abbridgement of the Protestant listing of the first stone tables of the Hebrew Ten Commandments, a move which disturbed many legislators and citizens, since Moore did not even consult with other judges or elected officials, quoted from AANEWS 952 (August 29, 2001)

if they want to get [my statue of] the Commandments, they're going to have to get me first.
-- Judge Roy Moore, upon the announcement of his eight associate justices that they withdraw their support of his violation of state and federal law by erecting, in the State Courthouse, a huge stone monument containing an abbridgement of the Protestant listing of the first stone tables of the Hebrew Ten Commandments, in Jeffrey Gettleman, "Thou Shalt Not, Colleagues Tell Alabama Judge" (The New York Times: August 21, 2003)

I must acknowledge God. It says so in the Constitution of Alabama. It says so in the First Amendment of the Constitution.
-- Judge Roy Moore (attributed: source unknown)

All the Ten Commandments and prayer is an acknowledgement of the Almighty God. We will not back down from that.
-- Judge Roy Moore, to a group of supporters outside the hearing where the ACLU sued to remove from his courtroom his posted copy of an abbridgement of the Protestant listing of the first stone tables of the Hebrew Ten Commandments, quoted from Conrad Goeringer, "Ten Commandments Posting in Courtroom Challenged by Alabama Freethought Association" (September 13, 1996)

Acknowledgment of God is not now, or ever has been, a violation of the US constitution.
-- Judge Roy Moore, defending his "right" to promote the Christian religion above all other religions and above no religion at all while presiding in his Alabama courtroom, quoted from Conrad Goeringer, "Judge Says He'll Continue Courtroom Prayer Despite Ruling" (November 24, 1996)

I consider it my duty to acknowledge God. To take down the Ten Commandments and to stop holding prayer would be a violation of that duty. I will not take down the Ten Commandments and I will not stop holding prayer.
-- Judge Roy Moore, defending his "right" to promote the Christian religion above all other religions and above no religion at all while presiding in his Alabama courtroom while threatening not to pay fines and mentioning the possibility of mass arrests, quoted from Conrad Goeringer, "Judge Says He'll Continue Courtroom Prayer Despite Ruling" (November 24, 1996)

I feel that I'm sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Alabama, and those constitutions are founded upon a fundamental belief in God ... my display of the Ten Commandments and prayer before sessions are simply acknowledgments of God.
-- Judge Roy Moore, vowing to uphold different a Constitution than the ones under which we Americans live, quoted from Conrad Goeringer, "Judge Rules That Decalogue Is A Religious, Not Historical Statement" (February 13, 1997)

If you're here tonight to support me, you shouldn't be here. This is not about me. This is about something far more important. It transcends race, it transcends politics, it transcends gender. This is about the laws of God.
-- Judge Roy Moore, laying it on thick at a rally to blast the ACLU and "working the evangelical crowd into a frenzy," quoted from William C Singleton III, "Judge Blasts ACLU In Alabama Rally" (February 23, 1997)

To restore morality we must first recognize the source from which all morality springs. From our earliest history in 1776 when we were declared to be the United States of America, our forefathers recognized the sovereignty of God.
-- Judge Roy Moore, a judge, flat-out declaring that atheists cannot be moral; also, in saying that "we were declared to be the United States of America," he makes a grievous error: we declared our own sovereignty, which eventually became a government made up of "We, The People," this did not happen to us from afar, as Moore pretends, we did this ourselves, from Maranatha Christian Journal, "Ten Commandments Judge Displays New Monument,"

We've voted in a government
     that's rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges who
     throw reason out the door,
Too soft to place a killer in
     a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby
     before he leaves the womb.
-- Judge Roy Moore, anti-atheist sentiments in a poem by a man elected for his impartiality, from "America the Beautiful" by the judge

Worship With Your Vote.
-- Judge Roy Moore, his campaign bumper sticker, implying that to vote for Moore is to worship God, Philip Rawls, "Atom sculpture awaits place beside Ten Commandments monument," AP (October 27, 2001)

Khan: He Installed it Overnight: Why the Delay Removing It?

"There's no reason to drag this out. That monument was brought in in a matter of hours. It can be taken out in a matter of hours."
-- Ayesha Khan, legal director for Americans United for Separation of Church and State, which helped sue Chief Justice Moore, comparing how in the wee hours of the morning on July 31, 2001, long after the other justices had gone home, Justice Moore and a couple of workmen sneaked the monument into the rotunda of the Alabama State Courthouse with his subsequent refusal, after his eight associate justices withdrew their support of his having erected a huge stone monument of the Protestant rendering and abbridgement of the first stone tablets of the Hebrew Ten Commandments, in Jeffrey Gettleman, "Thou Shalt Not, Colleagues Tell Alabama Judge" (The New York Times: August 21, 2003)

 
Protestors: This Thing is God Himself

"Put it back! ... Get your hands off our God, God haters!"
-- Protestors, screaming at a crew of Georgia movers who had been hired to move Moore's 5280-pound "Holy Rock" from the rotunda of the Alabama State Courthouse, making them idolators in the language of traditional Judaism and Christianity, quoted from Jody Brown and Allie Martin, "Protestors Pray as Ten Commandments Monument Moved" (Agape Press: August 27, 2003)

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Rev G Campbell Morgan

The severity of the law of God is the necessary sequence of his infinite love.
-- G Campbell Morgan, The Ten Commandments, p. 22, quoted in Joseph Lewis, The Ten Commandments, p. 121

The adulterer is the enemy of the state, and as such, after being divorced in the divorce court, should be imprisoned by the criminal courts. The man or woman upon whose guilt the marriage tie is broken, no Christian minister of any denomination has the right to remarry. It is an act of treason to the state to allow such persons to go free. They should be incarcerated in separation from the other sex to the end of their days, and then they could not wipe out the wrong they did the nation when by unchaste action they struck a blow at the family.... The prevalent notion that incompatibility of temperament is sufficient for divorce is a blow at the very throne of God.... Purity must refuse to give a moment's countenance in any form to such a doctrine of hell. The command is a simple, unqualified, irrevocable negative.... A sevenfold vice is this sin of unchaste conduct, being a sin against the Individual, the Family, the Nation, the Race, the Universe and God.
-- G Campbell Morgan, The Ten Commandments, pp. 78, 81, 82, quoted in Joseph Lewis, The Ten Commandments

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Henry Morris
Hydraulic engineer; Christian "young-Earth" creationist

Henry MorrisThe approach we try to take here [Morris's Institute for Creation Research] is to assume that the word of God is the word of God and that God is able to say what He means and means what He says, and that's in the Bible and that is our basis. And then we interpret the scientific data within that framework.
-- Henry Morris, as quoted in Brian J Alters, "A Content Analysis of the Institute for Creation Research's Institute on Scientific Creationism," Creation/Evolution 15, no. 2 (1995): 1-15., quoted from Victor J Stenger, Has Science Found God? (draft: 2001)

If man wishes to know anything about Creation (the time of Creation, the duration of Creation, the order of Creation, the methods of Creation, or anything else) his sole source of true information is that of divine revelation.
-- Henry Morris, as quoted by Judge Overton in the Arkansas Balanced Treatment Act case, quoted from Victor J Stenger, Has Science Found God? (draft: 2001)

God was there when it happened. We were not there.... Therefore, we are completely limited to what God has seen fit to tell us, and this information is in His written Word.
-- Henry Morris, as quoted by Judge Overton in the Arkansas Balanced Treatment Act case, from Stephen Jay Gould, "Creationism: Genesis vs. Geology" Science and Creationism, p. 130 (1984)

Evolution is the root of atheism, of communism, nazism, behaviorism, racism, economic imperialism, militarism, libertinism, anarchism, and all manner of anti-Christian systems of belief and practice.
-- Henry Morris, in a seeming preliminary to what might be pat summary, "and that about covers it!", in The Remarkable Birth of Planet Earth (1972) quoted from Professor Lesikar, "Use of the Bible Against the Copernican Theory"

American evangelist of the loose-cannon variety; estranged son of Madalyn Murray O'Hair and subject of 'Murray v. Curlett' (1963)

Bull MurrayYou cannot pray them out of hell.
-- Bill Murray, announcing that he will not pray for the souls of his mother, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, his brother, Jon Murray, and daughter, Robyn Murray, in an interview with Associated Press writer Jim Vertuno, quoted in AANEWS #896 (March 18, 2001) "Fight over O'Hair remains, evangelist promises action in Orlando during Atheist convention"

The atheists traditionally hold their conventions from Good Friday to Easter Sunday during the hours Christ spent in the grave.
-- Bill Murray, in his newsletter for March, 2001, announcing that he would stage a protest march of American Atheists' planned memorial service for their founder, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, in AANEWS #896 (March 18, 2001) "Fight over O'Hair remains, evangelist promises action in Orlando during Atheist convention"

I will be in Orlando during the atheist convention to do my best to counter the assaults upon Christ of the atheists. I also plan on running a large newspaper ad in the Orlando Sentinel addressed to the atheists and warning the Orlando area of the atheists' vile plans for their children.
-- Bill Murray, in his newsletter for March, 2001, announcing that he would stage a protest march of American Atheists' planned memorial service for their founder, Madalyn Murray O'Hair, in AANEWS #896 (March 18, 2001) "Fight over O'Hair remains, evangelist promises action in Orlando during Atheist convention"

Atheist leader Madalyn Murray O'Hair was murdered. Jon Murray and Robin Murray-O'Hair were also murdered by individuals involved with the atheist organization.
-- Bill Murray, statement on his website; in his zeal to discredit atheists, Murray conveniently neglects to mention that the culprits became involved primarily for the purpose of gaining access to the organization's funds

Mrs. O'Hair died horribly, a victim of the world she helped to shape. Without the Deity she fought so hard against, there is no right and wrong, increasingly people are ruled by their passions and humanity is a tragedy waiting to happen.

‘The Scream’ by Edward Munch (This image is in the public domain.)Rev Frederick David Niedermeyer
American minister

Is God still jealous?
     "For I, the Lord thy God, am a jealous God"!
     Some Christians are ashamed of that declaration. They think it has an undesirable meaning and are sorry that it is included in the Scriptures. Therein they differ from God, for He has freely declared that He is jealous.... In the mind of the Creator there is no hesitancy whatever in proclaiming His jealousy, and He has no dislike for the word. Believers who are ashamed of it do not realize what it means....
-- Rev Frederick David Niedermeyer, The Ten Commandments Today, pp. 36, 38, quoted in Joseph Lewis, The Ten Commandments, p. 121

Our bodies, though ours, are also God's, and that they are to be the dwelling places of the Holy Spirit when we become believers in Christ Jesus ... [to that extent, our bodies should not be touched by another person] except for the conventional contacts approved by society and which can be made without embarrassment in the presence of witnesses, such as the shaking of hands which is vastly different from a lingering handclasp.... This Commandment forbids immodesty in dress. It also forbids insinuating words and gestures, and actions that have a questionable or undesirable meaning.
-- Rev Frederick David Niedermeyer, The Ten Commandments Today, p. 114, quoted in Joseph Lewis, The Ten Commandments, pp. 398-9
