Slave Religion quotes by Tom Metzger
#2. Since Christianity is in fact a slave religion, it is satirical at
least to see the negro adopt a slave religion, after chattel slavery was
ended. It simply underlines the fact that consciously or unconsciously, weak
humans desire the status of sheep, no matter what they say. #Quote by Tom Metzger
Slave Religion quotes by James A. Haught
#3. As editor of the largest newspaper in West Virginia, I scan hundreds of reports daily ... and I am amazed by the frequency with which religion causes people to kill each other. It is a nearly universal pattern, undercutting the common assumption that religion makes people kind and tolerant. #Quote by James A. Haught

At home
in the countryside
I make the decision
to leave your book
--overdue at the library--
face up, 'promiscuous'
out in the sun.


I laugh to see
this was our religion
all along.

even from ourselves
not to touch
the earth.

Years of white gloves
straight seamed hose.
'Being good girls.'
Scripture like chains.
Dogma like flies.
Smiles like locks
and lies. #Quote by Alice Walker

Slave Religion quotes by Nadja Sam
#11. Almost everything important in life is invisible. #Quote by Nadja Sam
Slave Religion quotes by Jerry Piven
#12. Human beings invent myth, ideology, and religion as means of denying reality and replacing death with palliative fantasies. Helplessness and death are blows to human narcissism. Human beings create illusions about themselves, lie to themselves as a means to feel secure and less vulnerable. #Quote by Jerry Piven
Slave Religion quotes by V.E. Schwab
#13. We all believe the same thing really, we simply give it different names. Hardly a crime. #Quote by V.E. Schwab

Slave Religion quotes by Rajneesh
#17. The individual has totally different interests from the society, because the society has no soul. The society is soulless. And if you become too much a part of the society, it will reduce your soul also to a non-entity. Beware, before you have lost your whole opportunity. Don't be a slave. Follow society to the point you feel is needed, but always remain master of your own destiny. #Quote by Rajneesh
Slave Religion quotes by Sigmund Freud

#20. A priest's life is spent between question and answer

Slave Religion quotes by Aron Ra
#23. So secular humanism is not a religion in any sense, legal or otherwise, and neither is atheism. Religion must include a professed conviction, and mythical characters hardly counts as that. So atheism alone is no more a religion than health is a disease. One may as well argue over which brand of car pedestrians drive. #Quote by Aron Ra
Slave Religion quotes by Thomas Cooper
#24. Every politician, every member of the clerical profession, ought to incur the reasonable suspicion of being an interested supporter of false doctrines, who becomes angry at opposition, and endeavors to cast an odium on free inquiry. Fraud and falsehood only dread examination. Truth invites it. #Quote by Thomas Cooper
Slave Religion quotes by William Barclay
#25. If we are to accept the teaching of Jesus at all, then the only test of the reality of a man's religion is his attitude to his fellow men. The only possible proof that a man loves God is the demonstrated fact that he loves his fellow men. #Quote by William Barclay
Slave Religion quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#26. It is not snobbish to notice the way in which people show their gullibility and their herd instinct, and their wish, or perhaps their need, to be credulous and to be fooled. This is an ancient problem. Credulity may be a form of innocence, and even innocuous in itself, but it provides a standing invitation for the wicked and the clever to exploit their brothers and sisters, and is thus one of humanity's great vulnerabilities. No honest account of the growth and persistence of religion, or the reception of miracles and revelations, is possible without reference to this stubborn fact. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Slave Religion quotes by Mark M. Bello
#27. If Blake uncovers the truth, the Coalition and, perhaps the church, are finished."
"Part two of this plan, then, is to make sure that never happens."
"How do we accomplish that?"
"By any means necessary. #Quote by Mark M. Bello
Slave Religion quotes by Umberto Eco
#28. It is psychologically very hard to go through life without the justification, and the hope, provided by religion. #Quote by Umberto Eco
Slave Religion quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#29. Religion is to do right. It is to love, it is to serve, it is to think, it is to be humble. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Slave Religion quotes by David Dark
#30. I want them to think of being in church as being in the middle of a work of art, a collective witness of fellow human beings, wherever they are and whatever they're up to. #Quote by David Dark
Slave Religion quotes by Friedrich Engels
#31. Just as Darwin discovered the law of development of organic nature, so Marx discovered the law of development of human history: the simple fact, hitherto concealed by an overgrowth of ideology, that mankind must first of all eat, drink, have shelter and clothing, before it can pursue politics, science, art, religion, etc. #Quote by Friedrich Engels
Slave Religion quotes by Barbara Brown Taylor
#32. An old story is told about Rabia of Basra, an eighth-century Sufi mystic who was seen running through the streets of her city one day carrying a torch in one hand and a bucket of water in the other. When someone asked her what she was doing, she said she wanted to burn down the rewards of paradise with the torch and put out the fires of hell with the water, because both blocked the way to God, 'O, Allah,' Rabia prayed, 'if I worship You for fear of Hell, burn me in Hell, and if I worship You in hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise. But if I worship You for Your Own sake, grudge me not Your everlasting Beauty.'

In Christian tradition this comes under the heading of unconditional love, though it is usually understood as the kind of love God exercises toward humans instead of the other way around. Now, thanks to a Muslim mystic from Iraq, I have a new way of understanding what it means to love God unconditionally. Whenever I am tempted to act from fear of divine punishment or hope of divine reward, Rabia leans over from here religion into mine and empties a bucket of water on my head. #Quote by Barbara Brown Taylor
Slave Religion quotes by Peter Berger
#33. In all its manifestations, religion constitutes an immense projection of human meanings into the empty vastness of the universe-a projection, to be sure, which comes back as an alien reality to haunt its producers.' - p.100, 'The Sacred Canopy #Quote by Peter Berger
Slave Religion quotes by Yann Martel
#34. He seems to be attracting religions the way a dog attracts fleas. #Quote by Yann Martel
Slave Religion quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#35. In trying to practice religion, eighty percent of people turn cheats and about fifteen percent go mad; only the remaining five percent attain the immediate knowledge of the infinite Truth. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Slave Religion quotes by James Branch Cabell
#36. Patriotism is the religion of hell. #Quote by James Branch Cabell
Slave Religion quotes by Hilaire Belloc
#37. It was the Faith which gradually and indirectly transformed the slave into the serf, and the serf into the free peasant ... You will not be able to set up in a pagan or an heretical or a wholly indifferent society the institutions characteristic of economic freedom; you will not be able to curb competition which alone would be sufficient to destroy such freedom, nor pursue permanently and consecutively anyone part of the program. The thing must be done as a whole, and it can be done as a whole only by the ambient influence of Catholicism. #Quote by Hilaire Belloc
Slave Religion quotes by Walker Percy
#38. What she didn't understand, she being spiritual and seeing religion as spirit, was that it took religion to save me from the spirit world, from orbiting the earth like Lucifer and the angels, that it took nothing less than touching the thread off the misty interstates and eating Christ himself to make me mortal man again and let me inhabit my own flesh and love her in the morning. #Quote by Walker Percy
Slave Religion quotes by Edward Gibbon
#39. A state of scepticism and suspense may amuse a few inquisitive minds. But the practice of superstition is so congenial to the multitude, that if they are forcibly awakened, they still regret the loss of their pleasing vision. Their love of the marvellous and supernatural, their curiosity with regard to future events, and their strong propensity to extend their hopes and fears beyond the limits of the visible world, were the principal causes which favoroud the establishment of Polytheism. So urgent on the vulgar is the necessity of believing, that the fall of any system of mythology will most probably be succeeded by the introduction of some other mode of superstition. ( ... ) an object much less deserving would have been sufficient to fill the vacant place in their hearts. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Slave Religion quotes by Frederick Douglass
#40. She had been the source of all his wealth; she had peopled his plantation with slaves; she had become a great grandmother in his service. She had rocked him in infancy, attended him in childhood, served him through life, and at his death wiped from his icy brow the cold death-sweat, and closed his eyes forever. She was nevertheless left a slave - a slave for life - a slave in the hands of strangers; and in their hands she saw her children, her grandchildren, and her great-grandchildren, divided, like so many sheep, without being gratified with the small privilege of a single word, as to their or her own destiny. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Slave Religion quotes by Huston Smith
#41. With mind distracted, never thinking, "Death is coming,"
To slave away on the pointless business of mundane life,
And then to come out empty
it is a tragic error. (116)
trans by Robert Thurman #Quote by Huston Smith
Slave Religion quotes by Douglas Preston
#42. Religion arose as an effort to explicate the inexplicable, control the uncontrollable, make bearable the unbearable. Belief in a higher power became the most powerful innovation in late human evolution. Tribes with religion had an advantage over those without. They had direction and purpose, motivation and a mission. The survival value of religion was so spectacular that the thirst for belief became embedded in the human genome. #Quote by Douglas Preston
Slave Religion quotes by Robert Owen
#43. Women will be no longer made the slaves of, or dependent upon men ... They will be equal in education, rights, privileges and personal liberty. #Quote by Robert Owen
Slave Religion quotes by James Runcie
#44. There is only one religion - it is a way a man dies. #Quote by James Runcie
Slave Religion quotes by Graham Greene
#45. I know one thing you don't. I know the difference between Right and Wrong. They didn't teach you that at school.'
Rose didn't answer; the woman was quite right: the two words meant nothing to her. Their taste was extinguished by stronger foods
Good and Evil. #Quote by Graham Greene
Slave Religion quotes by Luis Omar Salinas
#46. Sometimes in the evening when love
tunes its harp and the crickets
celebrate life, I am like a troubadour
in search of friends, loved ones,
anyone who will share with me
a bit of conversation. My loneliness
arrives ghost like and pretentious,
it seeks my soul, it is ravenous
and hurting. I admire my father
who always has advice in these matters,
but a game of chess won't do, or
the frivolity of religion.
I want to find a solution, so I
write letters, poems, and sometimes
I touch solitude on the shoulder
and surrender to a great tranquility.
I understand I need courage
and sometimes, mysteriously,
I feel whole. #Quote by Luis Omar Salinas
Slave Religion quotes by Marcus Luttrell
#47. Americans should never forget that the founders of this country, like all who have served her in uniform, were willing to die defending everything its flag represents. It's so easy to get lost in the controversies that divide us. But I believe, no matter what our race, religion, or beliefs may be, that Americans should be able to come together to keep our country rooted in what made it great: a land of opportunity, a place where people can make something of themselves, limited only by their imaginations and willingness to work hard; a country where we can all come together, whatever our differences, for the greater good; a country of hands up, not handouts, where we try to live by the meaning of the words "Love thy neighbor," and put as much effort into helping others as we do helping ourselves. By doing those things, we can continue to live up to the idea of "One nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. #Quote by Marcus Luttrell
Slave Religion quotes by John A. Buehrens
#48. A religion is not contained in a single book; there's something religious in almost any book. #Quote by John A. Buehrens
Slave Religion quotes by J.D. Greear
#49. The Holy Spirit did not go into such detail about the Pharisees in the New Testament just so we could understand a group unique to the first century. Pharisaism is a poisonous weed that grows in every garden of orthodox religion. Pharisaism is every bit the threat to the orthodox today that it was then. #Quote by J.D. Greear
Slave Religion quotes by Meister Eckhart
#50. The shell must be cracked apart if what is in it is to come out, for if you want the kernel you must break the shell. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
Slave Religion quotes by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
#51. All that Socrates could effect by way of protest against the tyranny of the reformed democracy was to die for his convictions. The Stoics could only advise the wise man to hold aloof from politics, keeping the unwritten law in his heart. But when Christ said: "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's," those words, spoken on His last visit to the Temple, three days before His death, gave to the civil power, under the protection of conscience, a sacredness it had never enjoyed, and bounds it had never acknowledged; and they were the repudiation of absolutism and the inauguration of freedom. For our Lord not only delivered the precept, but created the force to execute it. To maintain the necessary immunity in one supreme sphere, to reduce all political authority within defined limits, ceased to be an aspiration of patient reasoners, and was made the perpetual charge and care of the most energetic institution and the most universal association in the world. The new law, the new spirit, the new authority, gave to liberty a meaning and a value it had not possessed in the philosophy or in the constitution of Greece or Rome before the knowledge of the truth that makes us free. #Quote by John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton
