I Think On-stage Nudity Is Disgusting, Shameful And Damaging To All Things American. But If I Were 22 With A Great Body, It Would Be Artistic, Tasteful, Patriotic And A Progressive Religious Experience.

For I Do Not Believe God Means Us Thus To Divide Life Into Two Halves - To Wear A Grave Face On Sunday, And To Think It Out-of-place To Even So Much As Mention Him On A Week-day. Do You Think He Cares To See Only Kneeling Figures And To Hear Only Tones Of Prayer - And That He Does Not Also Love To See The Lambs Leaping In The Sunlight, And To Hear The Merry Voices Of The Children, As They Roll Amoung The Hay? Surely Their Innocent Laughter Is As Sweet In His Ears As The Grandest Anthem That Ever Rolled Up From The Dim Religious Light Of Some Solemn Cathedral?
~ Lewis Carroll
To Know That What Is Impenetrable To Us Really Exists, Manifesting Itself As The Highest Wisdom And The Most Radiant Beauty, Which Our Dull Facilities Can Comprehend Only In The Most Primitive Forms--this Knowledge, This Feeling, Is At The Center Of True Religiousness. In This Sense, And In This Sense Only, I Belong To The Ranks Of The Devoutly Religious Men.
~ Albert Einstein
Our Religious Faith Gives Us The Answer To The False Beliefs Of Communism... I Have The Feeling That God Has Created Us And Brought Us To Our Present Position Of Power And Strength For Some Great Purpose.

A Religious Man Is A Person Who Holds God And Man In One Thought At One Time, At All Times, Who Suffers Harm Done To Others, Whose Greatest Passion Is Compassion, Whose Greatest Strength Is Love And Defiance Of Despair.

People May Say What They Like About The Decay Of Christianity The Religious System That Produced Green Chartreuse Can Never Really Die.
Without Cultural Sanction, Most Or All Our Religious Beliefs And Rituals Would Fall Into The Domain Of Mental Disturbance.
~ John Schumake
To Attempt To Be Religious Without Practicing A Specific Religion Is As Possible As Attempting To Speak Without A Specific Language.
~ George Santayana
A Religious Awakening Which Does Not Awaken The Sleeper To Love Has Roused Him In Vain.
~ Jessamyn West
What Do I Believe As An American I Believe In Generosity, In Liberty, In The Rights Of Man. These Are Social And Political Faiths That Are Part Of Me, As They Are, I Suppose, Part Of All Of Us. Such Beliefs Are Easy To Express. But Part Of Me Too Is My Relation To All Life, My Religion. And This Is Not So Easy To Talk About. Religious Experience Is Highly Intimate And, For Me, Ready Words Are Not At Hand.
~ Adlai Ewing Stevenson
