Druett Religion quotes by Patrick Chappatte
#9. Religion and political cartoons, as you may have heard, make a difficult couple, ever since that day of 2005, when a bunch of cartoonists in Denmark drew cartoons that had repercussions all over the world - demonstrations, fatwa, they provoked violence. People died in the violence. #Quote by Patrick Chappatte
Druett Religion quotes by Guru Arjan Dev

Druett Religion quotes by Sam Keen
#11. Aristotle said that philosophy begins in wonder. I believe it also ends in wonder. The ultimate way in which we relate to the world as something sacred is by renewing our sense of wonder. That's why I'm so opposed to the kind of miracle-mongering we find in both new-age and old-age religion. We're attracted to pseudomiracles only because we've ceased to wonder at the world, at how amazing it is. #Quote by Sam Keen
Druett Religion quotes by Neel Burton
#12. Ultimately, loneliness is not the experience of lacking but the experience of living. It is part and parcel of the human condition, and, unless a person is resolved, it can only be a matter of time before it resurfaces, often with a vengeance. On this account, loneliness is the manifestation of the conflict between our desire for meaning and the absence of meaning from the universe, an absence that is all the more glaring in modern societies which have sacrificed traditional and religious structures of meaning on the thin altar of truth. #Quote by Neel Burton
Druett Religion quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#13. The one theme of the Vedanta philosophy is the search after unity. The Hindu mind does not care for the particular; it is always after the general, nay, the universal. "what is it that by knowing which everything else is to be known." That is the one search. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Druett Religion quotes by Frederick Lenz
#14. It's just not working. One nation trying to destroy another, one race trying to destroy another, one religion trying to destroy another - It's the same old story over and over again. #Quote by Frederick Lenz
Druett Religion quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#15. Islam is the best religion and Muslims are the worst followers #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Druett Religion quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#16. [The haggadah] was made to teach, and it will continue to teach. And it might teach a lot more than just the Exodus story."
What do you mean?"
Well, from what you've told me, the book has survived the same human disaster over and over again. Think about it. You've got a society where people tolerate difference, like Spain in the Convivencia, and everything's humming along: creative, prosperous. Then somehow this fear, this hate, this need to demonize 'the other'
it just sort of rears up and smashes the whole society. Inquisition, Nazis, extremist Serb nationalists ... same old, same old. It seems to me that the book, at this point, bears witness to all that. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
Druett Religion quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#17. The Christian god is a being of terrific character - cruel, vindictive, capricious and unjust. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Druett Religion quotes by Carl Lotus Becker
#18. Reason may be employed to support faith as well as to destroy it. #Quote by Carl Lotus Becker
Druett Religion quotes by Charles Hard Townes
#19. At least this is the way I see it. I am a physicist. I also consider myself a Christian. As I try to understand the nature of our universe in these two modes of thinking, I see many commonalities and crossovers between science and religion. It seems logical that in the long run the two will even converge. #Quote by Charles Hard Townes
Druett Religion quotes by Chinua Achebe
#20. The white man is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with his religion. We were amused at his foolishness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Druett Religion quotes by Dalai Lama
#21. All religion teaches the virtues of love, altruism and patience, while showing us how to discipline and transform ourselves to achieve inner peace and a kind heart. Therefore, they are worthy of our respect. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Druett Religion quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#22. Currently spirituality is at an ebb in the more advanced technological societies. This in part because memes that validate spiritual order tend to lose their credibility with time, and need to be recast in new forms again and again. At present we are living in an era when many of the basic tenents of Christianity, which has supported Western spiritual values for almost two thousand yearsm have come into conflict with the conclusions of science and philosophy. While religions have lost much of their power, science and technology have not been able to generate convincing value systems to replace them. #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Druett Religion quotes by Stevie Smith
#23. Away with them, away; we should not believe fairy stories if we wish to be good. Think of them as persons from the fairy wood. #Quote by Stevie Smith
Druett Religion quotes by Joseph Pearce
#24. It just so happened that they agreed on politics and religion. It was precisely that agreement that has caused most observers to associate them with one another. #Quote by Joseph Pearce
Druett Religion quotes by Reza Aslan
#25. Islam doesn't promote violence or peace. Islam is just a religion, and like every religion in the world, it depends on what you bring to it. If you're a violent person, your Islam, your Judaism, your Christianity, your Hinduism, is going to be violent. #Quote by Reza Aslan
Druett Religion quotes by Kristner Stendhal
#26. Krister Stendhal, a Lutheran minister and Harvard University Dean gave these rules of Religious understanding for reporters to use when they are reporting on a religion.

Stendahl's Three Rules of Religious Understanding

(1) When you are trying to understand another religion, you should ask the adherents of that religion and not its enemies.

(2) Don't compare your best to their worst.

(3) Leave room for "holy envy." (By this Stendahl meant that you should be willing to recognize elements in the other religious tradition or faith that you admire and wish could, in some way, be reflected in your own religious tradition or faith.) #Quote by Kristner Stendhal
Druett Religion quotes by Henry Steele Commager
#27. The Americans who framed our Constitution felt that without freedom of religion no other freedom counted. #Quote by Henry Steele Commager
Druett Religion quotes by Mwanandeke Kindembo
#28. When you realise that no one had a Bible in the whole Bible. You will come to understand why the devil laughs at those who are repelling him with a cross drawn on the Bible. In short, he met Jesus himself in person! #Quote by Mwanandeke Kindembo
Druett Religion quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#29. Now, religion professes a special role in the protection and instruction of children. "Woe to him," says the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov, "who harms a child." The New Testament has Jesus informing us that one so guilty would be better off at the bottom of the sea, and with a millstone around his neck at that. But both in theory and in practice, religion uses the innocent and the defenseless for the purposes of experiment. By all means let an observant Jewish adult male have his raw-cut penis placed in the mouth of a rabbi. (That would be legal, at least in New York.) By all means let grown women who distrust their clitoris or their labia have them sawn away by some other wretched adult female. By all means let Abraham offer to commit filicide to prove his devotion to the Lord or his belief in the voices he was hearing in his head. By all means let devout parents deny themselves the succor of medicine when in acute pain and distress. By all means - for all I care - let a priest sworn to celibacy be a promiscuous homosexual. By all means let a congregation that believes in whipping out the devil choose a new grown-up sinner each week and lash him until he or she bleeds. By all means let anyone who believes in creationism instruct his fellows during lunch breaks. But the conscription of the unprotected child for these purposes is something that even the most dedicated secularist can safely describe as sin. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Druett Religion quotes by Alan M. Dershowitz
#30. I am not frightened of my beliefs. If there is a God who is threatening me with damnation because I don't believe in Him, so be it. I've lived my life in conscience, and I will suffer damnation willingly in conscience against a tyrannical God who would damn me because, on the basis of the intelligence He gave me, I have come to a conclusion doubting His existence, and I will continue to be a skeptic all of my life. #Quote by Alan M. Dershowitz
Druett Religion quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#31. Science takes things apart to see how they work. Religion puts things together to see what they mean. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Druett Religion quotes by Holly Sprink
#32. Instead of practicing philoxenos, which means loving the stranger, we find many times that the church is xenophobic. We forget that Jesus, whom we claim to follow, was the ultimate lover of otherness in people. Even differences in religion didn't freak Jesus out when it came to loving people. #Quote by Holly Sprink
Druett Religion quotes by Marylinne Robinson
#33. How do you tell a scribe from a prophet . . .? The prophets love the people they chastise. #Quote by Marylinne Robinson
Druett Religion quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#34. When our spirit departs, we will transit into the next world. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Druett Religion quotes by Lawrence Wright
#35. Religion is always an irrational enterprise, no matter how ennobling it may be to the human spirit. #Quote by Lawrence Wright
Druett Religion quotes by H.L. Mencken
#36. Theology is the effort to explain the unknowable in terms of the not worth knowing. #Quote by H.L. Mencken
Druett Religion quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#37. There were once again believers, who this time were unwilling to work on Sundays. (They had introduced the five-and the six-day week.) And there were collective farmers sent up for sabotage because they refused to work on religious feast days, as had been their custom in the era of individual farms.
And, always, there were those who refused to become NKVD informers. (Among them were priests who refused to violate the secrecy of the confessional, for the Organs had very quickly discovered how useful had very quickly discovered how useful it was to learn the content of confessions - the only use they found for religion.)
And members of non-Orthodox sects were arrested on an ever-wider scale.
And the Big Solitaire game with the socialists went on and on. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Druett Religion quotes by Martin Luther King, Jr.
#38. Every man lives in two realms: the internal and the external. The internal is that realm of spiritual ends expressed in art, literature, morals, and religion. The external is that complex of devices, techniques, mechanisms, and instrumentalities by means of which we live. #Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr.
Druett Religion quotes by Jim Palmer
#39. Religion made half of us afraid to die, and the other half afraid to live. #Quote by Jim Palmer
Druett Religion quotes by Michael A. Wood Jr.
#40. Everyone is somebody's atheist. #Quote by Michael A. Wood Jr.
Druett Religion quotes by Benjamin Haydon
#41. Never let your love for your profession overshadow your religious feeling. Depend on it that religion will strengthen, not weaken, your energies, and will not only make you a better sailor, but a superior man. Professional studies are not to be neglected; but, on the other hand, take care how you fall into the common error of believing they are the remedy for all the ills of life. #Quote by Benjamin Haydon
Druett Religion quotes by Napoleon Bonaparte
#42. Religion is excellent stuff for keeping common people quiet. Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich. #Quote by Napoleon Bonaparte
