It would be good for religion if many books that seem useful were destroyed. When there were not so many books and not so many arguments and disputes, religion grew more quickly than it has since.
The only good thing that we owe to Plato and Aristotle is that they brought forward many arguments which we can use against the heretics. Yet they and other philosophers are now in hell.
The sword of the Lord will descend on the Earth swiftly and soon!
Devout Christians are destined to be regarded as fools in modern society. We are fools for Christ's sake. We must pray for courage to endure the scorn of the sophisticated world.
It is a Constitution that morphs while you look at it like Plasticman.... That is contrary to our whole tradition, to "in God we trust" on the coins, to Thanksgiving proclamations, to (Congressional) chaplains, to tax exemption for places of worship, which has always existed in America.
On this day, when we're celebrating our constitutional heritage, I urge you
to be faithful to that heritage -- to impose on our fellow citizens only the
restrictions that are there in the Constitution, not invent new ones, not to
invent the right because it's a good idea.
[If critics of the Pledge of Allegiance persuaded the public it should be changed] then we could eliminate under God from the Pledge of Allegiance, that could be democratically done.
The wise do not investigate such silliness.
One can be sophisticated and believe in God. Reason and intellect are not to be laid aside where matters of religion are concerned.
To be honest about it, that is the view of Christians taken by modern society. Surely those who adhere to all or most of these traditional Christian beliefs are to be regarded as simpleminded.
To many Americans, everything from the Easter morning to the Ascension had to be made up by the groveling enthusiasts as part of their plan to get themselves martyred.

Every idea of the Holy Scriptures, from the first
to the last page, stands in diametrical opposition to the Darwinian theory.... If Darwin
be right in his view of the development of man out of a brutal condition, then the Bible
teaching in regard to man is utterly annihilated.
A very great man once said you should love your enemies and that's not a bad piece of advice. We can love them but, by God, that doesn't mean we're not going to fight them.
All we see and admire today will burn in the universal fire that ushers in a new, just, happy world.
People need to know why we, as the Jewish people, have a right to be here. We need to
tell people what we are doing here... My tourism guidebook is the Bible.
[Blasphemy is] speaking evil of the Deity with an impious purpose to derogate from the divine majesty, and to alienate the
minds of others from the love and reverence of God ... [and] purposely using words concerning God, calculated and designed to impair and destroy the reverence, respect, and confidence due to him.... It is a willful and malicious
attempt to lessen men's reverence of God.
This nation [the United States] was built on nothing but moral and biblical principles at its foundations.
If we turn our backs on God, God will turn his back on us.
God does not want us to be corrupted by close relationships with unbelievers. The fact is, if someone is not for God then they are against Him. You cannot be neutral with God. You're either on His side or on the side of the enemy.
Robert L Simonds
We are now in the process of putting born-again Christians on every school board in America.... A school board with five members needs only three Christians to take complete control of a school district. You can literally own that system and control all personnel, curriculum, materials, textbooks and policies.
American school children are openly being taught the following: how to become a faithful
Muslim; how to (and what to) PRAY to the Muslim God Allah; detailed Muslim doctrines from
the Koran, accepting the Koran as the only divine authority for them to live by; that Mohammed is
God's last prophet, because Allah gave him the words in the Koran for all men to follow; that the
Koran teaches that killing all unbelievers (especially Jews and Christians) is an honor that will gain
them paradise, where they will dwell with young virgins for a reward for their "good deeds."
Christians must exit the public schools.
We'll take away their power and their money. Money comes from students. We'll break their backs by taking 24 million kids out of the public schools.
God is honoring you and all you do, as you are now part of the greatest outreach in all history to save the helpless, innocent Christian church children still in our truly atheist public schools.
Guys, listen to me, I promise when you stand up for Jesus, Jesus is offensive, there will be persecution. I doubt though that you'll ever have to drop to your knees like Stephen while they stone you to death, but they might make fun of you. In fact, I promise if you really live boldly for Christ, they will make fun of you.
You mark yourselves in this generation, tattooing and piercing obviously prevalent among this generation. And I say, you know what, it's time to righteously mark ourselves with Christ. If the world can do it, certainly we can come up with a way to mark ourselves with Jesus, and so certainly, the Kneel Down is a way for them to identify with Christ.
How many of you know, we've lived through one generation without organized prayer in our schools? But I'd like to start this year, the first year of the second generation, with a prayer movement to sweep the hallways of our high schools. How many will join us in that prayer movement?
I'm not sure how many there'll be. But I do know this, the ones that are really going to get a hold of this thing, I believe we're just going to see unbelievable supernatural events begin to take place through this generation.
Espousing in a Baylor publication a view that is so out of touch with traditional Christian teachings is not only unwelcome, it comes dangerously close to violating university policy, as published in the student handbook, prohibiting the advocacy of any understandings of sexuality that are contrary to biblical teaching.
Ursula Sontbeil [a.k.a. Mother Shipton, née Charles Hindley]
The world then to an end will come
The world then at an end we'll view
The world then to an end will come
What abortion is to human life, marriage is to human culture. Marriage is
a non-negotiable thing for human civilization.
Check out: Rodney Stark's Reasonable Side
Not being religious is similar to any other shortsighted, risky and
impulsive behavior that some men -- primarily young males -- engage in, such
as assault, robbery, burglary, murder and rape.
[Some men are shortsighted, so] going to prison or going to hell just doesn't
matter to these men.
Sir Richard Steele (1672-1729)
I love to consider an Infidel, whether distinguished by the title of deist, atheist,
or free-thinker, by three different lights, in his solitude, his afflictions, and his last moments.... [In these situations such people show themselves] in solitude, incapable or rapture or elevation, ... in distress, [with] a
halter or a pistol the only refuge [they] can fly to, ... [and liable to conversion] at the approach of death.
I am back in LA now. And I keep thinking back to my time in New York after the bombings.... I was crying so much I could not see, and the other diners joined in, and I thought, What do you do with such atheistic evil?
Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925)
Agnosticism has seized hold of science, education and social life, and it affects millions of men who very often are quite unaware of the fact. It then lays hold of the realm of ideas, separating this from the world of true reality upon which alone humanity should have its stand; thus creating an inner division which weakens the soul forces of men. Through this division, licence is given to all the lower instincts, as we can recognize to be prominently the case in the world today. The realm of feeling also becomes unsatisfied; unfertilized by ideas it degenerates, hardens and becomes sentimental, or else it is engulfed in the life elementary instincts. This shows itself particularly in art, which is either sweetly unreal or else is naturalistic. True art creates its own style, and true style can only come from men's supersensible experiences. Agnosticism robs us of the truths which must live in art.
We have seen that blood united to blood in the case of but remotely connected species of animals, kills; blood united to blood in the case of more closely allied species of animals does not kill. The physical organism of man survives when strange blood comes in contact with strange blood, ... but clairvoyant power perishes under the influence of this mixing of blood, or exogamy.
In diabetes mellitus the case is as follows: the ego-organization, as it submerges in the astral and etheric realm, is so weakened that it can no longer effectively accomplish its action upon the sugar-substance. The sugar then undergoes the processes in the astral and etheric realms which should take place in the ego-organization.... From all this we see that a real healing process for diabetes mellitus can only be initiated if we are in a position to strengthen the ego-organization of the patient.
You catch a fairly young field-vole and flay it... We take the skin, when Venus stands in the sign of the scorpion, and combust the skin... Now take the ash, which you got this way, and pepper it out on the fields.
There's no realistic federal protection
for religious believers anymore. State and local governments can intrude,
as long as they don't single out any faith.
The world will end by a giant flood on February 20th 1524.
We had lost the fight for the preservation of the white race until God himself intervened in earthly affairs with AIDS to rescue and preserve the white race that he had created.... I praise God all the time for AIDS
AIDS is a racial disease of Jews and Niggers, and fortunately it is wiping out the queers. I guess God hates queers for several reasons. There is one big reason to be against queers and that is because every time some white boy is seduced by a queer into becoming a queer means his white bloodline has run out. He wont have any white offspring. What it does is that it cuts down on the numbers of the white race. Cause they are not breeding.
Infidels: Repent of Mohammedanism or burn in hell forever, throughout eternity.

Sex education classes in our public schools are promoting incest.
The word "philosophy" simply means "a pursuit of wisdom, the purpose of life, and a search for Truth." However, this quest, because it originates with man, can never find the answers. In fact, man cannot reach God or know God by intellectual pursuit.
If I do not return to the pulpit this weekend, millions of people will go to hell.
Frank Zappa on Swaggart
"Anybody hear the great news, today? Jimmy Swaggart under investigation! Oh Ja-ee-zus! One day every one of those cocksuckers will get caught! I understand
in the case of Mr Swaggart, that he claims that it was not multiple encounters with many prostitutes -- apparently, only one sweet young thing. And he did tell Cal Thomas of the Moral Majority that the sex act itself was not fully consumated. However
he did admit to doing something por-no-graphic with the girl. Let's use our imaginations, ladies and gentlemen!"
The want of belief is a defect that ought to be concealed when it cannot be overcome.
That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy.
Former used car salesman from upstate New York; founder of Operation Rescue, the most powerful of several groups who intimidate abortion providers through violence, and the only known group to enter a bookstore and rip the pages out of books which they think other people ought not read (although this illegal and immoral act at a Barnes and Noble store inspired legislation, the group of "enraged citizens" itself numbered only about a dozen people)
I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good.... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism.
When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed.
What it is coming down to is who runs the country. It's us against them. It's the good guys versus the bad guys. It's the God-fearing people against the pagans, and some of the pagans are going to church.
You better believe that I want to build a Christian nation, because the only option is a pagan nation. Not that the government can make someone a Christian by decree. A Christian nation would be defined as "We acknowledge God in our body politic, in our communities, that the God of the Bible is our God, and, we acknowledge that His law is supreme."
There is going to be war, [and Christians may be called to] take up the sword to overthrow the tyrannical regime that oppresses them.
The Son of God died; it is by all means to be believed because it is absurd. And he was buried and rose again; the fact is certain, because it is impossible.
Woman, thou shouldst ever be clothed in rags and in mourning, appearing only as a penitent, drowned in tears, and expiating thus the sin of having caused the fall of the human race. Woman thou art the gate of the devil. It is thou who hast corrupted those whom Satan dare not attack face to face.
Encarta: Partisan Spirit, Specious Reasoning
"[Tertullian's] work is remarkable for its blunt sarcasm, epigrammatic phrasing, aggressive partisan spirit, and skillful -- though sometimes specious -- reasoning."
It is not legal for me as an adult to give Bibles away in school, but it is legal for teenagers ... [to give them away so our organization can counter] the liberal agenda of homosexuality, premarital sex, abortion and evolution that is aggressively being promoted in our public schools.
Our forefathers carefully blended their faith into everyday life at every opportunity. They put the words, "In God we Trust"  on our money, included the phrase "One Nation Under God"  in our pledge to the flag, and gave us glorious songs like "God Bless America!"  and "America, America, God shed his grace on thee - And crowned thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea!"  It gives me goose-bumps just to think about it....
No man goes to hell for his sin -- people go to hell for unbelief ... they have not believed in Jesus Christ.
Sodomy is a graver sin than murder. -- Unless there is life there can be no murder.
Beware when you take on the Church of God. Others have tried and have bitten the dust.
If we are to say that religion cannot be concerned with politics then we are really saying that there is a substantial part of human life in which God's writ does not run. If it is not God's, then whose is it? Who is in charge if not the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
