Quotes about Religion page 16
When you consider all saints and prophets as legitimate and no longer differentiate between religions, you have reached the stage of true mysticism.Ostad Elahi
The world will never truly be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.Voltaire
If God is all-powerful, then the Devil must be nothing more than a darkness in the mind of God. But if the Devil is something real and separate, than perfection is impossible, and there can be no God... except for the aspirations of fallen angels....Tad Williams
If God would choose a plant to represent him, I think he would choose of all plants the cactus. The cactus has all the blessings he tried, but mostly failed, to give to man. Let me tell you how. It has humility, but it is not submissive. It grows where no other plant will grow. It does not complain when the sun bakes it back or the wing tears it from the cliff or drowns it in the dry sand of the desert or when it is thirsty. When the rain comes it stores water for the hard times to come. In good times and in bad it will still flower. It protects itself against danger, but it harms no other plant. It adapts perfectly to almost any environment. It has patience and enjoys solitude. In Mexico there is a cactus that flowers only once every hundred years and at night. This is saintliness of an extraordinary kind, would you not agree? The cactus has properties that heal the wounds of men and from it come potions that can make man touch the face of God or stare into the mouth of hell. It is the plant of patience and solitude, love and madness, ugliness and beauty, toughness and gentleness. Of all plants, surely God made the cactus in his own image?

Belief? What do I believe in? I believe in sun. In rock. In the dogma of the sun and the doctrine of the rock. I believe in blood, fire, woman, rivers, eagles, storm, drums, flutes, banjos, and broom-tailed horses....Edward Abbey
Religion: keeping the poor from killing the rich for 2000 years.Bumper sticker
May the gods stand between you and death in all of the dark places where you must walk.Ancient Egyptian Blessing

Why does the church restrain our most basic human drive: to think?Mike Hutchison
Religion is for people who are afraid to go to hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.
I believe in the sun despite darkness. I believe in truth despite deception. I believe in peace despite war. I believe in love despite hate. I believe in life despite death. I believe redemption despite sin. I believe in Heaven despite Hell. I believe in faith despite fear. I believe in Jesus despite his crucifixion. I believe in God despite His silence. I believe in myself despite my flaws. I believe in you despite our differences. I believe.Aaron Kusza
Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time! But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit!George Carlin
I didn't beleive in God, until I saw God. It was everything, all of infinity. Hate, love, horror and splendor. It is the infinite structure, or pattern of interconnected conscious experiences that is YOUR mind, that creates, contains, appreciates, understands, realizes and experiences all things. You just forgot God on purpose in order to appreciate what it is like to be you, and be challenged. God is the facilitator of this dream. (or nightmare) And I still don't believe in God, or anything for that matter.Acidfreak
Religion is the belief that humans are something more than accidental products of biological evolution, in a solar system of limited lifetime, in an uncaring physical universe.Dick Ramette
Love may forgive all infirmities and love still in spite of them: but Love cannot cease to will their removal.C.S. Lewis
Unless Christianity is wholly false, the perception of ourselves which we have in moments of shame must be the only true one...C.S. Lewis
