Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#1. True religion must raise to work at the bar and the bench, on the couch and on the streets, in the cottage of the poor man and in the penthouse of the entrepreneur, with the fisherman that is catching fish and with the students that are studying. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#2. Every brain on your planet generates its own beliefs. Just imagine, around seven billion human brains are generating seven billion unique beliefs at this very moment. Now imagine, what would happen, if all those seven billion humans start imposing their own beliefs on each other. The only thing that is going to come out of such inhuman attempt is chaos and eventually mass extinction. So, the only way to avoid such a catastrophic consequence is to be more compassionate about people's beliefs. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#3. A rational human being of the civilized world would be like the swan that can draw the milk from a mixture of milk and water, leaving aside the water. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Azar Nafisi
#4. This is a good time to ask apologists for the Islamic regime, who degrades Islam? Who imposes stoning, forced marriage of underage girls and flogging for not wearing the veil? Do such practices represent Iran's ancient history and culture, its ethnic and religious diversity? Its centuries of sensual and subversive poetry? #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#5. Religion doesn't divide the society. The humans reading the wrong books to understand religion, do. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Murathan Mungan
#6. Identity is a concept of our age that should be used very carefully. All types of identities, ethnic, national, religious, sexual or whatever else, can become your prison after a while. The identity that you stand up for can enslave you and close you to the rest of the world. #Quote by Murathan Mungan
Religious Diversity quotes by Tariq Ramadan

Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar

Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#10. I don't make any pretence of knowing about the existence of a Supreme Entity, neither do I make any attempt to create any friction among religions. If anything, I have spared myself no pains in my endeavor to smoothen the ongoing friction among all religions of the world. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Walter F. Mondale
#11. Whatever his private beliefs and religious practice, a president must be the guardian of the laws which ensure America's religious diversity. #Quote by Walter F. Mondale
Religious Diversity quotes by M. Stanton Evans

Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#14. Beliefs are a quintessential part of the human psyche, but they can be both healthy and harmful. And the beliefs of the fundamentalist Australopithecines are particularly harmful. These beliefs are what we call "delusions". Except unlike in a neuropsychological ailment, the delusion of the fundamentalists is not just harmful for the individuals suffering from it, but more importantly it is the greatest threat to peace, progress and wellbeing of the entire human species. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#15. With the glorious flames of compassion in your heart, embrace the goodness from all religions. Taste the love of Christmas, the radiance of Diwali, the brotherhood of Ramadan, the feast of Sukkot and assimilate anything that appeals to you. The end product of such acceptance is a peaceful human society, filled with joy and cheer. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Religious Diversity quotes by Isaac Newton
#16. Blind metaphysical necessity, which is certainly the same always and every where, could produce no variety of things. All that diversity of natural things which we find suited to different times and places could arise from nothing but the ideas and will of a Being, necessarily existing. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Religious Diversity quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#17. Christians believe that God loves you sooo much... he created hell, just in case you don't love him back. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Religious Diversity quotes by Francis Asbury
#18. We should so work as if we were to be saved by our works; and so rely on Jesus Christ, as if we did no works. #Quote by Francis Asbury
Religious Diversity quotes by Adolf Hitler
#19. In late marriage alone lies the compulsion to retain an institution which, twist and turn as you like, is and remains a disgrace to humanity, an institution which is damned ill-suited to a being who with his usual modesty likes to regard himself as the 'image' of God. #Quote by Adolf Hitler
Religious Diversity quotes by Bob Dylan
#20. To preach of peace and brotherhood, oh what might be the cost? A man he did it long ago, and they hung him on a cross. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Religious Diversity quotes by Kristner Stendhal
#21. 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
Religious Diversity quotes by Albert Schweitzer
#22. Hear our humble prayer, O God. Make us, ourselves, to be true friends to the animals. #Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Religious Diversity quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#23. Most of the utopian community ideas actually are religious. They're based more on the idea of the monastery than the commune. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Religious Diversity quotes by Jennifer Bosworth
#24. That's insane! But then, we're talking about a religious cult here, and cult followers aren't renowned for their rationality. #Quote by Jennifer Bosworth
Religious Diversity quotes by Robert Green Ingersoll
#25. A false friend, an unjust judge, a braggart, hypocrite, and tyrant, sincere in hatred, jealous, vain and revengeful, false in promise, honest in curse, suspicious, ignorant, infamous and hideous-such is the God of the Pentateuch. #Quote by Robert Green Ingersoll
Religious Diversity quotes by Tony Campolo
#26. Whenever there is a catastrophe, some religious people inevitably ask, 'Why didn't God do something? Where was God when all those people died?' #Quote by Tony Campolo
Religious Diversity quotes by Jay Michaelson
#27. I thought that coming out was going to be the end of my religious life but actually it was the beginning. Because it only afterwards that I could be honest about who I was, what I wanted, how I understood spirituality. #Quote by Jay Michaelson
Religious Diversity quotes by Gillian Flynn
#28. Every phrase had to be captured on paper or it wasn't real, it slipped away. I'd see the words hanging in midair
Camille, pass the milk
and anxiety coiled up in me as they began to fade, like jet exhaust. Writing them down, though, I had them. No worries that they'd become extinct. I was a lingual conservationist. I was the class freak, a tight, nervous eighth-grader frenziedly copying down phrases ("Mr. Feeney is totally gay," "Jamie Dobson is ugly," "They never have chocolate milk") with a keenness bordering on the religious. #Quote by Gillian Flynn
Religious Diversity quotes by William Anthony Donohue
#29. Removing religion from the womb of culture has become the practiced virtue of the ACLU over the past several decades. #Quote by William Anthony Donohue
Religious Diversity quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#30. Love implies great freedom - not to do what you like. But love comes only when the mind is very quiet, disinterested, not self-centered. These are not ideals. If you have no love, do what you will - go after all the gods on earth, do all the social activities, try to reform the poor, the politics, write books, write poems - you are a dead human being. And without love your problems will increase, multiply endlessly. And with love, do what you will, there is no risk; there is no conflict. Then love is the essence of virtue. And a mind that is not in a state of love is not a religious mind at all. And it is only the religious mind that is freed from problems, and that knows the beauty of love and truth. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Religious Diversity quotes by Tom Courtenay
#31. I'm not religious. I love what Clive James said the other day. James is a brilliant writer, but he keeps on writing poems on stuff. And he said, "God doesn't have a leg to stand on." #Quote by Tom Courtenay
Religious Diversity quotes by Charles James Hall
#32. Yet, emotionally I could not bring myself to accept either his presence, or his reality. My problem was not a religious problem. God could certainly create as many variations of intelligent humans as he wanted. Presumably God put humans here on this earth, and all non-humans on some other far-away planet orbiting some other far-away star. My problem was a scientific problem. For the Tall White guard to be standing there in the hot sun, for real, would mean that everything I had been taught about Einstein and the Theory of Relativity was simply incorrect. #Quote by Charles James Hall
Religious Diversity quotes by Aldous Huxley
#33. I found myself all at once on the brink of panic. This, I suddenly felt, was going too far. Too far, even though the going was into intenser beauty, deeper significance. The fear, as I analyze it in retrospect, was of being overwhelmed, of disintegrating under a pressure of reality greater than a mind, accustomed to living most of the time in a cosy world of symbols, could possibly bear. The literature of religious experience abounds in references to the pains and terrors overwhelming those who have come, too suddenly, face to face with some manifestation of the Mysterium tremendum. In theological language, this fear is due to the in-compatibility between man's egotism and the divine purity, between man's self-aggravated separateness and the infinity of God. Following Boehme and William Law, we may say that, by unregenerate souls, the divine Light at its full blaze can be apprehended only as a burning, purgatorial fire. An almost identical doctrine is to be found in The Tibetan Book of the Dead, where the departed soul is described as shrinking in agony from the Pure Light of the Void, and even from the lesser, tempered Lights, in order to rush headlong into the comforting darkness of selfhood as a reborn human being, or even as a beast, an unhappy ghost, a denizen of hell. Anything rather than the burning brightness of unmitigated Reality - anything! #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Religious Diversity quotes by Francis Lambert
#34. All that is deformed ought to be reformed. The Word of God alone teaches us what ought to be so, and all reform effected otherwise is vain. #Quote by Francis Lambert
Religious Diversity quotes by Paul Vitz
#35. Are public school textbooks biased? Are they censored? The answer to both is yes. And the nature of the bias is clear: Religion, traditional family values, and conservative political and economic positions have been reliably excluded from children's textbooks. #Quote by Paul Vitz
Religious Diversity quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#36. That's right-the striking thing about greenhouse gases is the diversity of sources that emit them. A herd of cattle belching can be worse than highway full of hummers. #Quote by Thomas L. Friedman
Religious Diversity quotes by John Stuart Mill
#37. So natural to mankind is intolerance ... that religious freedom has hardly anywhere been practically realized. #Quote by John Stuart Mill
Religious Diversity quotes by Elvia Alvarado
#38. My mother is very religious. She's one of those old ladies that spends her life in the church. She just prays and prays, day and night. We have a very different idea of what religion is. She doesn't understand what my work is about, why I want to make changes in the way we live. She thinks we should be thankful for the little we have and leave well enough alone. I suppose she thinks that if she prays enough, God will come down from the sky with a plate of beans for her to eat.
But I don't think that God say, 'Go to church and pray all day and everything will be fine.' No. For me God says, 'Go out and make the changes that need to be made, and I'll be there to help you.' [p. 30] #Quote by Elvia Alvarado
Religious Diversity quotes by Mario Vargas-Llosa
#39. Nothing better protects a human being against the stupidity of prejudice, racism, religious or political sectarianism, and exclusivist nationalism than this truth that invariably appears in great literature: that men and women of all nations and places are essentially equal, and only injustice sows among them discrimination, fear, and exploitation. #Quote by Mario Vargas-Llosa
Religious Diversity quotes by Eddy Parisi
#40. If you don't know you can beat the Lion, do not step in the cage with the him! Some things are better left alone.
By, Eddy Parisi #Quote by Eddy Parisi
Religious Diversity quotes by Lionel Blue
#41. At religious instruction classes, I encountered The Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan, and the sincerity of the traveller in that book was overwhelming. #Quote by Lionel Blue
Religious Diversity quotes by Jonathan Sacks
#42. The Jewish festival of freedom is the oldest continuously observed religious ritual in the world. Across the centuries, Passover has never lost its power to inspire the imagination of successive generations of Jews with its annually re-enacted drama of slavery and liberation. #Quote by Jonathan Sacks
Religious Diversity quotes by DaShanne Stokes
#43. I've fought for religious freedom and I can tell you that anti-gay 'religious freedom' bills aren't it. #Quote by DaShanne Stokes
Religious Diversity quotes by Pope John Paul II
#44. It would be a sad thing if the religious and moral convictions upon which the American experiment was founded could now somehow be considered a danger to free society. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Religious Diversity quotes by Lucian Bane
#45. God has protected his anointed. And the wrath of Purgatory is certainly coming for those who run and are in need of its cleansing fire. You can run, but you can't hide. ~Father Abraham #Quote by Lucian Bane
Religious Diversity quotes by Saint Ignatius
#46. While studying at Barcelona, Ignatius was in doubt whether, after completing his studies, he should enter some Religious Order, or go from place to place, according to his custom. He decided to enter upon the religious life. #Quote by Saint Ignatius
