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

Do Not Believe In Anything Simply Because You Have Heard It. Do Not Believe In Anything Simply Because It Is Spoken And Rumored By Many. Do Not Believe In Anything Simply Because It Is Found Written In Your Religious Books. Do Not Believe In Anything Merely On The Authority Of Your Teachers And Elders. Do Not Believe In Traditions Because They Have Been Handed Down For Many Generations. But After Observation And Analysis, When You Find That Anything Agrees With Reason And Is Conducive To The Good And Benefit Of One And All, Then Accept It And Live Up To It.
~ The Buddha
I Hope That No American... Will Waste His Franchise And Throw Away His Vote By Voting Either For Me Or Against Me Solely On Account Of My Religious Affiliation. It Is Not Relevant.
