MICHAEL LIND, The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear (2004)
"Thank the Lord"? That sounded like a prayer, a prayer in a public school. God has no place within these walls, just like facts don't have a place within an organized religion.
SUPERINTENDENT CHALMERS, The Simpsons, "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song" (1994)
Why would God allow this to happen? Why do bad things happen to good people? Religion has masqueraded as the paranormal since the dawn of time to justify some of the most horrible acts in history.
FOX MULDER, The X-Files, "All Souls" (1998)
For me religion is a stick to lean on. For you it is a stick to beat others to death with.
MILADY DE WINTER, 3 musketiers-De musical (2003)
Religion is flawed, but only because man is flawed.
CARDINAL STRAUSS, Angels & Demons (2009)
Science and religion are not enemies! There are simply some things that science is just too young to understand. So the church pleads: "stop", "slow down", "think", "wait", and for this - they call us backward. But who is more ignorant: the man who cannot define lightning, or the man who does not respect its natural awesome power?
CAMERLENGO PATRICK McKENNA, Angels & Demons (2009)
Look, I'm all for believing whatever it is that you want to believe; but you say "religion" and I'm thinking Da Vinci's Last Supper. Jesus looks sad, the apostles look miserable - I don't want to go to their party. Shouldn't religion be more like Dogs Playing Poker?
SUE SNELL, Carrie (2002)
Any religion without love and compassion is false, it's a lie!
BURT ROBESON, Children of the Corn (1984)
Spirituality is not religion. Religion divides people. Belief in something unites them.
RADY, Flight of the Phoenix (2004)
Religion may not be perfect, but it is a well-built boat that can stay balanced and carry you to the other shore.
ADAM SORS, Sunshine (1999)
