Religionists say the funniest things:

  • [T]he inability to believe in God and to live by faith is the greatest of evils.  Catholic
    Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor



  • No, I don’t know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be
    considered patriots. This is one nation under God. George Herbert Walker Bush



  • We live in a day when there is a great war going on in the society in which we live. There
    are many battlefronts and aspects to the war, but the primary war in our day is between
    Christianity and secular humanism.  Abounding Joy Christian Website



  • They seek to remove from the public domain any acknowledgment of God. Religion is seen
    as merely a private affair with no place in public life. It is as if they are intent on
    establishing a new religion in America--the religion of secularism.  American Presidential
    Candidate Mitt Romney



  • Atheism is the religion whose belief about God is that there is no God. . . . it must be
    subject to the same legal restrictions imposed by governments on all other religions. In
    particular, in the United States, the teaching of Atheism must be prohibited wherever the
    teaching of Christianity is prohibited.  The Reverend Bill McGinnis



  • People who reject the idea of a God--who think that we’re just accidental protoplasm--have
    always been with us. What bothers me is . . . if there is no eternal standard of right and
    wrong, then all that matters is power. And atheism leads to brutality. All the horrific crimes
    of the last century were committed by atheists--Stalin and Hitler  and Mao and so forth--
    because it flows very naturally from an idea that there is no judgment and there is nothing
    other than the brief time we spend on this Earth. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels  



  • And the angel said unto me, behold, these shall dwindle in unbelief. And it came to pass
    that I beheld that after they had dwindled in unbelief, they became a dark, and loathsome,
    and a filthy people, full of idleness and all manner of abominations.  The Book of Mormon



  • We are called the State Legislature [of Utah], but when the time comes, we shall be called
    the Kingdom of God. Our government is going to pieces, and it will be like water that is
    split upon the ground that cannot be gathered. For the time will come when we will give
    laws to the nations of the earth. Joseph Smith organized this government before, in
    Nauvoo, and he said if we did our duty, we shall prevail over all our enemies.  Second
    Mormon President Brigham Young



  • If the People of the Book accept the true faith and keep from evil, We will pardon them their
    sins and admit them to the gardens of delight. If they observe the Torah and the Gospel
    and what is revealed to them from Allah, they shall be given abundance from above and
    from beneath.  The Koran



  • I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this
    mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.  
    Jesus



  • The great miracle of the New Testament can be seen as a combination of the Death and
    Resurrection of Jesus. If one is able to believe this, then all other miracles of the Gospels
    and Acts are easily believed. . . . The resurrection, more than any other miracle of the New
    Testament, is the foundation on which . . . Christian faith and hope rest.  Dr. C. Matthew
    McMahon



  • Christ’s resurrection is the central event of Christianity, a fundamental truth that must be
    reaffirmed with vigor at all times, as to deny it in different ways, as has been attempted and
    continues to be attempted, or to transform it into a merely spiritual event is to make our
    faith vain. If Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in
    vain.  Pope Benedict XVI



  • God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and
    subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living
    creature that moves on the ground.” Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant
    on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be
    yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the
    creatures that move on the ground--everything that has the breath of life in it--I give every
    green plant for food.”  The Bible



  • So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is
    raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is
    raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural
    body, there is also a spiritual body.  The Bible



  • A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God; but the woman
    is the glory of man. For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; neither
    was man created for woman, but woman for man.  The Bible



  • And say to the believing women that they cast down their looks and guard their private
    parts and do not display their ornaments except what appears thereof, and let them wear
    their head-coverings over their bosoms, and not display their ornaments except to their
    husbands or their fathers . . . and let them not strike their feet so that what they hide of
    their ornaments may be known.  The Koran



  • 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.  Pat Robertson



  • Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived:
    neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves
    with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall
    inherit the kingdom of God.  The Bible



  • [W]e don’t have to debate what we think about homosexual activity. It’s written in the
    Bible.  Ted Haggard



  • Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.  The Bible



  • [M]arriage is neither a matter of politics, nor is it a matter of social policy. Marriage is
    defined by the Lord Himself. . . . It is not an institution to be tampered with by mankind,
    and certainly not to be tampered with by those who are doing so simply for their own
    purposes. There is no such thing in the Lord’s eyes as something called same-gender
    marriage. Homosexual behavior is and will always remain before the Lord an abominable
    sin.  Statement of the Mormon Church



  • Atheism has always been hostile to religion, such as in its arguments that freedom of or for
    religion should include freedom from religion. Atheism’s threat rises as its proponents grow
    in numbers and aggressiveness. . . . [A]theism’s spokesmen are aggressive [and] have
    developed great skills in demonizing those who disagree with them, turning their opponents
    into objects of fear, hatred and scorn.  Mormon Elder Dallin Oaks



  • The Boy Scouts of America maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen
    without recognizing an obligation to God. . . . The recognition of God as the ruling and
    leading power in the universe and the grateful acknowledgment of His favors and blessings
    are necessary to the best type of citizenship and are wholesome precepts in the education of
    the growing members. No matter what the religious faith of the members may be, this
    fundamental need of good citizenship should be kept before them. The Boy Scouts of
    America . . . is absolutely nonsectarian in its attitude toward that religious training.  
    Declaration of Religious Principle, Bylaws of Boy Scouts of America



  • We believe that homosexual conduct is inconsistent with the requirements in the Scout Oath
    that a Scout be morally straight and in the Scout Law that a Scout be clean in word and
    deed, and that homosexuals do not provide a desirable role model for Scouts. Because of
    these beliefs, the Boy Scouts of America does not accept homosexuals as members or as
    leaders, whether in volunteer or professional capacities.  Boy Scouts of America Position
    Statement: Homosexuality and the BSA.
