Bokononism Religion quotes by James Baldwin
#1. Life is tragic simply because the earth turns and the sun inexorably rises and sets, and one day, for each of us, the sun will go down for the last, last time. Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death
ought to decide, indeed, to earn one's death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life. One is responsible for life: It is the small beacon in that terrifying darkness from which we come and to which we shall return. #Quote by James Baldwin
Bokononism Religion quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#2. Men will wrangle for religion, write for it, fight for it, die for it; anything but live for it. #Quote by Charles Caleb Colton
Bokononism Religion quotes by Ramsey Clark
#3. Islam is the only religion that gives dignity to the poor. #Quote by Ramsey Clark
Bokononism Religion quotes by William Stephens
#4. For if you look over the State of Religion as it standeth in Christendom, there is no Church whatsoever which will accept you as a Member of its Communion, but upon some particular terms of Belief, or Practice, which Christ never appointed, and it may be such as an honest and a wise Christian cannot consent to. I am not more able to give up my Reason to the Church of England, than to give up my Senses to the Church of Rome; it looks like a Trick in all Churches to take away the use of Mens Reason, that they may render us Vassals and Slaves to all their Dictates and Commands. #Quote by William Stephens
Bokononism Religion quotes by Northrop Frye
#5. Between religion's this is and poetry's but suppose this is, there must always be some kind of tension, until the possible and the actual meet at infinity. #Quote by Northrop Frye
Bokononism Religion quotes by Mark M. Bello
#6. . . . this predator used his position in furtherance of his crimes and disguised his depravity as a religious ritual. This man will soon reside in an Ohio prison, where he belongs. He is not only guilty of serious crimes against children. He is guilty of a serious betrayal of faith. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Bokononism Religion quotes by Aporva Kala
#7. Religion is like this; a prayer, a song, a flower, a white sugar ball, a chime of the brass bell, the rendering of mantra, closing one's eyes; Meditation. #Quote by Aporva Kala
Bokononism Religion quotes by Abdolkarim Soroush
#8. Islam, or any religion, will become totalitarian if it is made into an ideology, because that is the nature of ideologies. #Quote by Abdolkarim Soroush
Bokononism Religion quotes by Christopher E. Young
#9. I achieved something I'd never achieved before in writing a lyric about myself which had no answer. It had a question about religion. I've got this thing with religions in general. I'm interested in people's philosophies and why they cling to them. Do they need something to rely upon because they are not strong enough in their own life, or are they clinging to them because there's a real value that I miss? At the time, I was becoming more obsessed about Christian religion, and Forbidden Colours was the first time I achieved that kind of writing, putting something into the lyrics that was just an expression of what I was going through, that had no ending. It was very honest, and that's what made me decide to carry on writing. I couldn't go back. I was just incapable of getting out so I just wrote directly about myself. #Quote by Christopher E. Young
Bokononism Religion quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#10. It is among men of genius and science that atheism alone is found. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Bokononism Religion quotes by Edward Kennedy
#11. The real transgression occurs when religion wants government to tell citizens how to live uniquely personal parts of their lives. The failure of Prohibition proves the futility of such an attempt when a majority or even a substantial minority happens to disagree. Some questions may be inherently individual ones, or people may be sharply divided about whether they are. In such cases, like Prohibition and abortion, the proper role of religion is to appeal to the conscience of the individual, not the coercive power of the state. #Quote by Edward Kennedy
Bokononism Religion quotes by Karim El Koussa
#12. The outsiders stood always in awe in front of what they had surnamed the Celestial City with Mighty Walls. The great mystery that cloaked its very foundations kept impelling the youth of Crotona, as well as those of the adjacent cities, to seek admittance. In spite of the difficult rules of the Master, curiosity goaded many to venture inside its secrecy, with a passionate aspiration to discover the unknown. Yet, to enroll, young men and women should be introduced by their parents. Sometimes, it was one of the assigned Masters of the Pythagorean Society who assumed the introduction. At the massive wooden gated entrance, one could admire the marble statue of Hermes-Enoch, the father of the spiritual laws. A cubical stone formed its stall where a skillful hand had carved the words: No entry to the vulgar #Quote by Karim El Koussa
Bokononism Religion quotes by Carson McCullers
#13. I feels sorrier for him than anybody I knows. I expect he done read more books than any white man in this town. He done read more books and he done worried about more things. He full of books and worrying. He done lost God and turned his back on religion. His troubles come down just to that. #Quote by Carson McCullers
Bokononism Religion quotes by FM-2030
#14. Conventional names define a person's past: ancestry, ethnicity, nationality, religion. I am not who I was ten years ago and certainly not who I will be in twenty years #Quote by FM-2030
Bokononism Religion quotes by Leonard Wibberley
#15. There are worse things than eating the dead, my dear fellow. Far worse things. There is, for instance, making a huge profit out of their funeral, which is the normal custom in the civilized world. #Quote by Leonard Wibberley
Bokononism Religion quotes by E. Haldeman-Julius
#16. Religion glorifies the dogma of a despotic, mythical God. Atheism ennobles the interests of free and progressive Man. Religion is superstition. Atheism is sanity. Religion is medieval. Atheism is modern. #Quote by E. Haldeman-Julius
Bokononism Religion quotes by Neal Stephenson
#17. Is it a virus, a drug, or a religion ... What's the difference #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Bokononism Religion quotes by Johnny Depp
#18. Religion is a fascinating black hole to me. #Quote by Johnny Depp
Bokononism Religion quotes by James Madison
#19. Because we hold it for 'a fundamental and undeniable truth', that religion or 'the duty which we owe to our Creator' and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence. #Quote by James Madison
Bokononism Religion quotes by Flannery O'Connor
#20. What people don't realize is how much religion costs. They think faith is a big electric blanket, when of course it is the cross. #Quote by Flannery O'Connor
Bokononism Religion quotes by Petra Hermans
#21. I don't like classy people.
Because I like the class of the poor.
Religion Of Blue Circle

Bokononism Religion quotes by Thomas Raymond Kelly
#22. Is religion subjective? Nay, its soul is in objectivity, in an Other whose Life is our true life, whose Love is our love, whose Joy is our joy, whose Peace is our peace, whose burdens are our burdens, whose Will is our will. Self is emptied into God, and God in-fills it. #Quote by Thomas Raymond Kelly
Bokononism Religion quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#23. I select a very small number of things to be sceptical about, such as markets, and on these I am hypersceptic. But I want to be fooled by randomness in art. I want the ceremonial of religion; we are made for it. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Bokononism Religion quotes by Israel Morrow
#24. I firmly believe that American society would not endure ten years if subjected to half the trials and tortures we've put Natives through. And yet Native peoples have not been utterly destroyed, not by the world's strongest military. They have not been totally assimilated, not by the world's largest religion. Native religions are indeed concerned with being a good person, respecting one's family, ancestors, community, and the Earth - and when these principles are lived, there is great strength. #Quote by Israel Morrow
Bokononism Religion quotes by Lewis Mumford
#25. The earth is the Lord's fullness thereof: this is no longer a hollow dictum of religion, but a directive for economic action toward human brotherhood. #Quote by Lewis Mumford
Bokononism Religion quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#26. Religion taught us to return good for evil. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Bokononism Religion quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#27. If virtuous, the government need not fear the fair operation of attack and defense. Nature has given to man no other means of sifting the truth, either in religion, law, or politics. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Bokononism Religion quotes by Terry Pratchett
#28. Or maybe they're just keen on killing people. That's religion for you. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Bokononism Religion quotes by Marina Warner
#29. The price the Virgin demanded was purity, and the way the educators of Catholic children have interpreted this for nearly two thousand years is sexual chastity. Impurity, we were taught, follows from many sins, but all are secondary to the principal impulse of the devil in the soul
lust. #Quote by Marina Warner
Bokononism Religion quotes by Jeannette Walls
#30. Brian told Mom we needed to keep Maureen away from those nutty Pentecostals, but Mom said we all came to religion in our own individual ways and we each need to respect the religious practices of others, seeing as it was up to every human being to find his or her own way to heaven. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Bokononism Religion quotes by Lev Grossman
#31. You sound just like my parents. That is just exactly what my ignorant Christian parents would say. Just, if it doesn't fit with your theory, well, that's just because, oh, it actually does, but God is mysterious, so we can't see it. Because we're so sinful. That's so fucking easy. #Quote by Lev Grossman
Bokononism Religion quotes by Timothy Keller
#32. Religion says, 'I obey; therefore I am accepted.' Christianity says, 'I'm accepted, therefore I obey. #Quote by Timothy Keller
Bokononism Religion quotes by Dennis Prager
#33. When Jews left Judaism, they didn't stop being religious. They simply swapped God-based Judaism for godless secular humanism and leftism. For left-wing Jews, Judaism is their ethnicity; leftism is their religion. #Quote by Dennis Prager
Bokononism Religion quotes by Barack Obama
#34. When we start using religion as a bludgeon in politics, when we start questioning other people's faith, we start using religion to divide, instead of bring the country together, then I think we've got a problem. #Quote by Barack Obama
Bokononism Religion quotes by Neal Boortz
#35. I don't believe in atheists. #Quote by Neal Boortz
Bokononism Religion quotes by M.J. Rose
#36. Men are monsters all, and something in them wants to force others to see the world the same way they see it. #Quote by M.J. Rose
Bokononism Religion quotes by Petra Hermans

Bokononism Religion quotes by Christopher Zzenn Loren
#38. I believe emotional suppression fueled by a shamed imagination lies at the root of society's ailments. It is the believing leaders of religion that keep the "denial circus" going decade after decade. We have, for too long, supported this tyranny of delusion. We have given the guru and the preacher the stage one too many times. It is time to wake up and replace the preacher with the human teacher - a human who is the intelligence of their whole organism. #Quote by Christopher Zzenn Loren
Bokononism Religion quotes by Flora Lewis
#39. Democracy may have arisen in the West as the way of striving for the universal aspiration to dignity and freedom, but it isn't alien to the underlying concepts that infuse religion and moral philosophy everywhere. #Quote by Flora Lewis
Bokononism Religion quotes by Graham Elliot
#40. I tried to start my own religion in high school. I was very eccentric. I've always loved attention. #Quote by Graham Elliot
Bokononism Religion quotes by Dave Barry
#41. Hobbies of any kind are boring except to people who have the same hobby. This is also true of religion, although you will not find me saying so in print. #Quote by Dave Barry
Bokononism Religion quotes by George Carlin
#42. 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! #Quote by George Carlin
Bokononism Religion quotes by E. M. Forster
#43. We reach in desperation beyond the fog, beyond the very stars, the voids of the universe are ransacked to justify the monster, and stamped with a human face. London is religions opportunity--not the decorous religion of theologians, but an anthropomorphic, crude. Yes, the continuous flow would be tolerable if a man of our own sort--not anyone pompous or tearful--were caring for us up in the sky. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Bokononism Religion quotes by Heinrich Himmler
#44. Let us assume that the Turks in whose ranks Europeans were fighting as well, even in high positions, would have conquered Vienna and Europe in 1683 instead of having been forced to withdraw. If the Mohammedans would have gained the victory at the time and Islam would have swept victoriously over Europe, then the Christian churches would have been depoliticized. ( ... ) For the Turks were religiously tolerant, they allowed each religion to continue to exist, provided it was no longer involved in politics - otherwise it was finished. #Quote by Heinrich Himmler
Bokononism Religion quotes by Erika Johansen
#45. Tyler did not believe in hell. He had decided, long ago, that if God wanted to punish them, there was infinite opportunity right here; hell would be superfluous.
But if there was a hell on earth, Tyler had certainly found it. #Quote by Erika Johansen
Bokononism Religion quotes by Glen Cook
#46. The man who counts on the aid of a god deserves the help he doesn't get. #Quote by Glen Cook
Bokononism Religion quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#47. The gods that we've made are exactly the gods you'd expect to be made by a species that's about half a chromosome away from being chimpanzee. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Bokononism Religion quotes by King Hussein I
#48. Let me say this loud and clear. There is a world of difference between terrorist acts and the Islamic Shari'a. Islam is not only a religion, but a way of life. And at its heart lie the sacred principles of tolerance and dialogue. #Quote by King Hussein I
