Quotable Quotes

For years Hellena has been stating that the Religious Right (which is neither, btw) has been plotting a hostile takeover of the world. In that vein, Hellena has decided to gather quotes that demonstrate this.

Here's today's offerings:

"That is the delicate balance the Secretary of the Interior must have: to be steward for the natural resources for this generation as well as future generations. I do not know how many future generations we can count on before the Lord returns; whatever it is we have to manage with a skill to leave the resources needed for future generations." -- James G. Watt, testimony before the House Interior Committee, February 1981

"We don't have to protect the environment, the Second Coming is at hand." -- interpretation of the above testimony by Austin Miles, Setting the Captives Free

Lovely. Forget recycling or watching your consumerism. The Lord is Comin'!!

"Yes, religion and politics do mix. America is a nation based on biblical principles. Christian values dominate our government. The test of those values is the Bible. Politicians who do not use the bible to guide their public and private lives do not belong in office." Beverly LaHaye - “Ms.” magazine, 2/87

“Separation of church and state” currently means almost exactly the opposite of what it originally meant." - David Barton WallBuilders

Hellena would like to propose the abolishment of tax-free status for all churches and religious organizations that wish to participate in the political process. Even if it is just voicing opinions like the ones above.
