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.
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy
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.
~ Shelley Winters
The Truly Religious Man Does Not Embrace A Religion And He Who Embraces One Has No Religion.
~ Kahlil Gibran
Intellectually, Religious Emotions Are Not Creative But Conservative. They Attach Themselves Readily To The Current View Of The World And Consecrate It.
~ John Dewey
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
It Was, Of Course, A Lie What You Read About My Religious Convictions, A Lie Which Is Being Systematically Repeated. I Do Not Believe In A Personal God And I Have Never Denied This But Have Expressed It Clearly. If Something Is In Me Which Can Be Called Religious Then It Is The Unbounded Admiration For The Structure Of The World So Far As Our Science Can Reveal It.
~ Albert Einstein, Letter, 24 March 1954. Quoted in "Albert Einstein: The Human Side, " edited by Helen Dukas and Banesh Hoffman
A Legal Or Religious Ceremony By Which Two Persons Of The Opposite Sex Solemnly Agree To Harass And Spy On Each Other... Until Death Do Them Join.

The Three Most Important Parts A Man Has Are, Briefly, His Private Parts, His Money And His Religious Beliefs.
~ Samuel Butle
What Is A Minority The Chosen Heroes Of This Earth Have Been In A Minority. There Is Not A Social, Political, Or Religious Privilege That You Enjoy Today That Was Not Bought For You By The Blood And Tears And Patient Suffering Of The Minority. It Is The Minority That Have Stood In The Van Of Every Moral Conflict, And Achieved All That Is Noble In The History Of The World.
~ John B. Gough
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.
~ President Harry Truman, Public Papers of the President of the United States: Harry S. Truman - 1951 U. S. Gov. 1966 pp548-549
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
The Beauty Of Religious Mania Is That It Has The Power To Explain Everything. Once God Or Satan Is Accepted As The First Cause Of Everything Which Happens In The Mortal World, Nothing Is Left To Chance... Logic Can Be Happily Tossed Out The Window.
~ Stephen King
