[Non-Catholic Christians are] in
a gravely deficient situation in comparison with those who, in the [Roman Catholic] church, have the fullness of the means of salvation.
Wonderful things were to be seen. Numbers of the Saracens [Muslims] were beheaded ... Others were shot with arrows, or forced to jump from the towers; others were tortured
for several days, then burned with flames. In the streets were seen piles of heads and hands and feet. One rode about everywhere amid the corpses of men and horses. In the temple of Solomon, the horses waded in the blood up to their knees, nay, up to
the bridle. It was a just and marvelous judgement of God, that this place should be filled with the blood of unbelievers.
The truth is, politics and morality are inseparable. And as morality's foundation is religion,
religion and politics are necessarily related. We need religion as a guide. We need it because we are imperfect.
The most sublime picture in American history is of George Washington on his knees in the snow at Valley Forge. That image personifies a people who know that it's not enough to depend on our own
courage and goodness; we must also seek help from God, our father and preserver.
God, the source of all knowledge, should never have been expelled from our children's classrooms.
Well, it's a theory, it is a scientific theory only, and it has in recent years been challenged in the world of science and is not yet believed in the scientific community to be as infallible as it
once was believed. But if it was going to be taught in the schools, then I think that also the biblical theory of creation, which is not a theory, but the biblical story of creation, should also be taught.
I am told that tens of thousands of prayer meetings are being held on this day; for that I am deeply grateful. We are a nation under God, and I believe God intended for us to be free. It would be fitting
and good, I think, if on each inaugural day in future years it should be declared a day of prayer.
For the first time ever, everything is in place for the Battle of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ.
We may be the generation that sees Armageddon.
"The first man in twenty years to make the Presidency a part-time job, a means of filling up a few of the otherwise blank days of retirement."
"A triumph of the embalmer's art."
Pat Robertson's one-time replacement as chief of the Christian Coalition
It's like guerrilla warfare. If you reveal your location, all it does is allow your opponent to improve
his artillery bearings. It's better to move quietly, with stealth, under cover of night. You've got two choices: You can wear cammies and shimmy along on your belly, or you can put on a red coat and stand up for everyone to see. It comes down to whether
you want to be the British army in the Revolutionary War or the Viet Cong. History tells us which tactic was more effective.
I want to be invisible. I do guerrilla warfare. I paint my face and travel at night. You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag. You don't know until election night.
The Christian Coalition's Agenda
We should resist the temptation to identify our religious convictions with the platform of a party or the platitudes of favored politicians.
Pat Robertson Disagrees:
"We want ... as soon as possible to see a majority of the Republican Party in the hands of pro-family Christians by 1996."
"You know, I'm a convention, at the Republican convention I'm a delegate from VA. So is Ralph Reed. We're both delegates elected by our state to come to this convention. And,
uh, we have another 450 Christian Coalition members. Uh, so to say that we're non-partisan is a little ingenuous. I mean, obviously we're partisan. The Christian Coalition's voter guides, on the other hand, are non-partisan. The money that is spent in
an election cycle is a non-partisan, uh, effort. But I think under the various laws, the FEC rules, and so forth, it is perfectly all right to advocate candidates who support your positions on key issues, be they abortion, or family tax credits, or whatever.
The Supreme Court has said that's part of our First Amendment freedom. So I, I, I don't deny that we have that right. But so far we have been more or less non-partisan, but I think rather clearly Republican."
Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court
The "wall of separation between church and state" is a metaphor based on bad history, a metaphor which has proved useless as a guide to judging. It should be frankly and explicitly abandoned.
Janet Reno Did Not Say This:
"A cultist is one who has a strong belief in the Bible and the Second Coming of Christ; who frequently attends Bible studies; who has a high level of financial
giving to Christian causes; who home schools his children; who has accumulated survival foods and has a strong belief in the Second Amendment; and who distrusts big government."
Mayor of the small Florida town of Inglis
Satan, ruler of darkness, giver
of evil, destroyer of what is good and just, is not now, nor ever again will be, a part of this town of Inglis.
[Funding for faith-based charities
should] be judged based on performance and results -- not religion. Now, if our sin is that our religion can produce the results, then we plead guilty.
Let me be very blunt: the heterosexual transmission of AIDS is, in Africa, a function of truly pathological promiscuity. So this is really a violence issue -- not the same violence we deal with in Boston,
where teenagers stab and shoot each other, but the violence of African men who are killing themselves, and killing African women and children, with pathological promiscuity.
And we can't discharge that moral responsibility by passing out contraceptives. Contraceptives have been circulating all over Uganda, and it is not clear how many people are using the things. The best
contraceptive in this case is abstinence.
The Court has now officially stated its disbelief in God Almighty.
It's my experience that in any church, from 60 to 70 percent of men are losing
the battle for purity.
Robertson (b. 1930)
Founder of Christian Coalition (the Muthah of all Radical Religious Right groups)

We have enough votes to run the country. And when
the people say, "We've had enough," we are going to take over.
There is no such thing as separation of church and state in the Constitution. It is a lie of the Left and we are not going to take it anymore.
When I said during my presidential bid that I would only bring Christians and Jews into the government, I hit a firestorm. "What do you mean?" the media challenged me. "You're not
going to bring atheists into the government? How dare you maintain that those who believe in the Judeo-Christian values are better qualified to govern America than Hindus and Muslims?" My simple answer is, "Yes, they are."
You say you're supposed to be nice to the Episcopalians and the Presbyterians and the Methodists and this, that, and the other thing. Nonsense. I don't have to be nice to the spirit of the Antichrist.
I can love the people who hold false opinions but I don't have to be nice to them.
The Constitution of the United States, for instance, is a marvelous document for self-government by the Christian people. But the minute you turn the document into the hands of non-Christian people
and atheistic people they can use it to destroy the very foundation of our society. And that's what's been happening.
[Planned Parenthood] is teaching kids to fornicate, teaching people to have adultery, every kind of bestiality, homosexuality, lesbianism -- everything that the Bible
The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft,
destroy capitalism, and become lesbians.
The Islamic people, the Arabs, were the ones who captured Africans, put them in slavery, and sent them to America as slaves. Why would the people in America want to embrace the religion of slavers.
wars of extermination have given a lot of people trouble unless they understand fully what was going on. The people in the land of Palestine were very wicked. They were given over to idolatry. They sacrificed their children. They had all kinds of abominable
sex practices. They were having sex apparently with animals. They were having sex men with men and women with women. They were committing adultery and fornication. They were serving idols. As I say, they were offering their children up, and they were
forsaking God. God told the Israelites to kill them all: men, women and children; to destroy them."
Just like what Nazi Germany did to the Jews, so liberal America is now doing to the Evangelical Christians. It's no different. It is the same thing. It is happening all over again. It is the Democratic
Congress, the liberal-based media and the homosexuals who want to destroy the Christians. Wholesale abuse and discrimination and the worst bigotry directed toward any group in America today. More terrible than anything suffered by any minority in history.
can kiss my ass.
Better a pink
bottom than a black soul.
Texas State Attorney General John Hill
"I don't mind pink bottoms. What I do object to is black, blue and bloody."
Corpus Christi Caller-Times Newspaper
"[Eighteen-year-old Justin] Simons told deputies he was not allowed to take a break unless he jumped across the pit.... When he tried to jump the pit,
he fell and sprained both ankles."
"The Christian agency ... the Texas Association of Christian Child Care Agencies, Inc, ... a private organization created by Governor George W Bush
last year ... will re-inspect the homes annually and has the power to take the accreditation away."
"... to avoid the perception of a conflict of interest ..."
Dr James W Prescott
"The time has also come to recognize the painful truth that traditional Judeo-Christian moral values of pain and pleasure in human relationships have
contributed substantially to child abuse and to the prevalence of physical violence in Western civilization.... The religious system upon which our culture is based holds that pain, suffering and deprivation are moral and necessary to save one's soul
and make one a 'good person.' The crucifixion and scourging of Christ are examples."
Emergency Room Doctor
"I'm sorry, Maam, I have to call the police. Your son has been tortured."
"The twin concepts of sin and vindictive punishment seem to be at the root of much that is vigorous, both in religion and politics."
Roman Catholic Church
You are going to see again the child about which you read in the Terrible Judgment, that it was condemned to hell. See! It is a pitiful sight. The little child is in this red hot oven. Hear the fire!
It beats its head against the roof of the oven. It stamps its little feet on the floor. You can see on the face of this little child what you see on the faces of all in hell, despair, desperate and horrible... This child committed very bad mortal sins,
knowing well the harm of what it was doing, and knowing that hell would be the punishment. God was very good to this child. Very likely God saw that this child would get worse and worse, and would never repent, and so it would have to be punished much
more in hell. So God, in His mercy, called it out of the world in its early childhood.
The doctrine that the earth is neither the center of the universe nor immovable, but moves even with a daily rotation, is absurd, and both philosophically and theologically false, and at the least
an error of faith.
... the hypothesis that God has increased the complexity of life on earth by successive creations
of new life forms over billions of years while miraculously changing the earth to accommodate the new life.
[The evidence from cosmology] determines that the cause of the universe is functionally equivalent to the God of the Bible, a Being beyond the matter, energy, space, and
time of the cosmos.
The plan of salvation as stated in the Bible can be seen through observation of the universe around us.
Even a brilliant research scientist can waste his or her efforts, in [Stephan Hawking's] case on theoretically impossible lines of research, if he or she rejects clear evidence
pointing to God.
[Recent evidence regarding quantum mechanics is] sufficient to rule out all theological options but one -- the Bible's.
The Entity who brought the universe into existence must be a Personal Being, for only a person can design with anywhere near this degree of precision.
Not one example of significant self-generation or self-organization can be found in the entire realm of nature.... Without causation, nothing happens and without organization by an intelligent being,
systems tend to lower and lower levels of complexity.
Victor Stenger: Ross Not Extreme Like the Others
"I have characterized Ross as exemplifying an extreme position among theistic scientists. However, he is not so extreme as to promote the scientifically unsound
notions of the young-Earth creationists and other anti-evolutionists ... They are so far off the scale that their scientific claims need not be taken seriously. Their distortions and misrepresentations of the scientific facts are not consistent with
their self-righteous claims of acting to protect all that is good and moral."
Victor Stenger: No Conspiracy Against Big Bang
"Ignoring relativity, quantum mechanics, nuclear energy, DNA, and the rest of twentieth century science, Ross has characterized the COBE satellite results
as "the discovery of the century," and claims they fulfill the prophecies of the Bible. He inflates the importance of the proponents of the steady-state models, like Hoyle, and charges that they are surreptitiously
engaged in the ancient assault mounted by science against God. Ignoring the fact that the overwhelming consensus of cosmologists now accept the big bang, Ross would have us think that scientists are engaged in some kind of atheist conspiracy to suppress
the big bang theory. In fact, Hoyle and his supporters are far from the mainstream on this issue. The overwhelming majority of cosmologists today accept the big bang. It has become as fundamental to the framework of cosmology as evolution has become
to the framework of biology."
I don't know. Just get me a fucking faith-based thing. Got it?
We are encouraging everyone that attends football games to join in the Lord's Prayer immediately and spontaneously as soon as the national anthem is complete.
If you are going to have organized spontaneity, you have to have something everybody knows that is easy to say.
This is not in defiance of the Supreme Court ruling.... If the fans break out in a spontaneous prayer, there is no Supreme Court ruling against that.
There is a Constitution where this phrase was found -- the former Soviet Union.
Anybody that would feel unwelcome because the Lord's Prayer is spoken at a ball game is a little narrow minded.
That's definitely Satanic, influenced by Satan.
The deliverance of the saints must take place some time before 1914.
The deliverance of the saints must take place some time after 1914.
