No great thinker was ever celebrated for his unbelievable ability to 'respect' everyone’s awful ideas and defer to those who held them. The highest respect one can pay to another’s idea is to scrutinize it and explain what might be wrong. This is what 'respect' means in the intellectual domain.  (Spencer Mulesky)

How did the Holocaust happen?  Because God allowed it to happen.  Why did it happen?  Because God said, 'My top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel.'   (Rev. John Hagee)

I don’t believe in any gods or goddesses, because they are so obviously human inventions.  Desert-dwellers have severe, austere and dry gods; suffering and oppressed people have loving and merciful gods; farmers have gods of rain and fruitfulness, and I have never met a liberal who believed in a conservative god, or a conservative who believed in a liberal one.  Every god I have ever heard of bears the indelible marks of human manufacture, and through history we can explain how and why we invented them.  (Andrew Copson).

Man is the religious animal.  He is the only animal that has the true religion - several of them.  He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself, and cuts his throat if his theology isn't straight.  He has made a graveyard of the globe in trying his honest best to smooth his brother's path to happiness and heaven.  (Mark Twain)

Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but more frequently than not struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.  (Martin Luther)

Atheist is really a thoroughly honest, unambiguous term; it admits of no paltering and of no evasion, and the need of the world, now as ever, is for clear-cut issues and unambiguous speech.  (Chapman Cohen)

The bible contains six admonishments to homosexuals and 362 admonishments to heterosexuals.  That doesn't mean that god doesn't love heterosexuals.  It's just that they need more supervision.  (Anon)

The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion.  (from The Treaty of Tripoli, Article 11, written during the administration of President George Washington, signed by President John Adams, and unanimously approved by the Senate in 1797)

To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead, or endeavoring to convert an atheist by Scripture.  (Thomas Paine)
