Religion is not a nice thing. It is potentially a very dangerous thing because it involves a heady complex of emotions, desires, yearnings and fears.
Karen Armstrong

There is in every village a torch: the schoolmaster – and an extinguisher: the parson.
Victor Hugo

Read myths. They teach you that you can turn inward, and you begin to get the message of the symbols. Read other people’s myths, not those of your own religion, because you tend to interpret your own religion in terms of facts – but if you read the other ones, you begin to get the message. Myth helps you to put your mind in touch with this experience of being alive. Myth tells you what the experience is.
Joseph Campbell

People say we need religion when what they really mean is we need police.
H L Mencken

Anyone who knows history will recognize that the domination of education or of government by any one particular religious faith is never a happy arrangement for the people.
Eleanor Roosevelt

A man is accepted into a church for what he believes and he is turned out for what he knows.
Mark Twain

Pointing to another world will never stop vice among us; shedding light over this world can alone help us.
Walt Whitman

Truth, in matters of religion, is simply the opinion that has survived.
Oscar Wilde

To be a Christian, you must pluck out the eye of reason.
Martin Luther

Who will venture to place the authority of Copernicus above that of the Holy Spirit?
Johannes Calvyn

  3. Dankie , oulike pos. Christenskap is ‘n lewenstyl. Nogal jammer soveel mense sien dit as ‘n geloof . Die geloof dra jy in jouself en jou lewenstyl is veronderstel om mense te oortuig sonder woorde.
