"It must be remembered...that many people have an enormous distaste for the theory of special creation. They oppose it with deep emotional feeling. They consider anyone who might even suggest that special creation could be a viable position for scientific thought today to be some kind of impossibly backward thinker."
"Many modern thinkers are literally incensed that someone might suggest an alternative theory to the optimistic, progressive, upward movement of the evolutionary pattern. In fact, their intense opposition to special creationist views sounds less like a scholarly, scientific, dispassionate discussion of data and interpretations and more like a defense of some important prior commitment on their part. Emotionally and psychologically it is almost as if they are defending their own religion." - L. Russ Bush
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them." - George Washington

And if a sparrow cannot fall to the Ground without his Notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his Aid?"" -- Benjamin Franklin
"It is too probable that no plan we propose will be adopted. Perhaps another dreadful conflict is to be sustained.If, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disprove, how can we afterwards defend our work?Let us raise a standard to which the wise and the honest can repair.The event is in the hand of God. "-- George Washington
"If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under." - Ronald Reagan
?or God? sake, let the children have their minds kept open ?close no doors to their knowledge; shut no door from them. Make a distinction between theology and science. Let them have both. Let them be taught. Let them both live.??Clarence Darrow
"In contrast to Christians through the ages, the denominational Left has substituted sentiments for facts, passions for authority, and subjectivity for reason. Their belief seems to be that if they 'create space for dialogue' it will allow them to emote and vote with the result that a simple majority determines the new revised standard version of God's truth and will... The traditional Christian understanding is that truth is true even if it is not experienced. It is true objectively and absolutely... Left and Right represent radically different understanding of faith and truth. It's the difference between 'Making It Up As I Go' and 'Thus saith the Lord'." ?im Tonkowich
The moral imagination of Americans, which is so much a part of our national character, is inseparable from our religious roots. ?Paul Greenberg
"Far from being rivals or enemies, religion and law are twin sisters, friends, and mutual assistants. Indeed, these two sciences run into each other. The divine law, as discovered by reason and the moral sense, forms an essential part of both." - James Wilson
