~~~~~~~

The Bible is literature, not dogma.

~~~~~~~

The Bible looks like it started out as a game of Mad Libs.

~~~~~~~

The blackest billingsgate, the most ungentlemanly insolence, the most yahooist brutality, is patently endured, countenanced, propagated, and applauded. But touch a solemn truth in collision with the dogma of a sect, though capable of the clearest proof, and you will soon find you have disturbed a nest, and the hornets will swarm about your eyes and hand, and fly into your face and eyes.

~~~~~~~

The Christian religion not only was at first attended with miracles, but even at this day cannot be believed by any reasonable person without one.

The Christian view that all intercourse outside marriage is immoral was, as we see in the…passages from St. Paul, based upon the view that all sexual intercourse, even within marriage, is regrettable. A view of this sort, which goes against biological facts, can only be regarded by sane people as a morbid aberration. The fact that it is embedded in Christian ethics has made Christianity throughout its whole history a force tending towards mental disorders and unwholesome views of life.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

The Church says the Earth is flat. But I know that it is round. For I have seen the shadow on the Moon. And I have more faith in a shadow than in the Church.

~~~~~~~

The Church used to absolve sinners; today it has the gall to absolve sins.

~~~~~~~

The churches must learn humility as well as teach it.- George Bernard Shaw

~~~~~~~

The clergy believe that any portion of power confided to me, will be exerted in opposition to their schemes. And they believe rightly: for I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyrrany known to the mind of man.

~~~~~~~

The coziness between church and state is good for the state and bad for the church.

~~~~~~~

The difference between heresy and prophecy is often one of sequence. Heresy often turns out to have been prophecy — when properly aged.

~~~~~~~

The difficulty with pragmatic arguments for a religion is that truths do not always ‘work’, and beliefs that ‘work’ are by no means always true.

~~~~~~~

The dimension of depth in the consciousness of religion creates the tension between what is and what ought to be. It bends the bow from which every arrow of moral action flies.

~~~~~~~

The discussions of every age are filled with the issues on which its leading schools of thought differ. But the general intellectual atmosphere of the time is always determined by the views on which the opposing schools agree. They become the unspoken presuppositions of all thought, and common and unquestioningly accepted foundations on which all discussion proceeds.
