Quotable & Notable
In the decade since I left the Senate, American politics has been characterized by two phenomena: the increased activism of the Christian right and the collapse of bipartisan collegiality. I do not think it is a stretch to suggest a relationship between the two.
-- John C. Danforth, an Episcopal minister and former Republican senator from Missouri, writing in The New York Times
I dont understand most of the political cartoons (heck, I dont even understand the funny pages).
-- Lee Knox, a Peace Corps volunteer adjusting to U.S. media after two years in rural Romania. She wrote in The Kansas City Star.
All through the Bible, they were begging. Begging was way back there in the Bible days.
-- Clarence Davis, an opponent to a proposal, adopted Aug. 15, that limits begging in parts of downtown Atlanta
As we continue to try to politicize God, or market God, or say that America is Christian, or that God is with one [political] party, or that God is here and not there, it only further points to the fact that we dont understand how big God is -- and how great God is.
-- Bishop T.D. Jakes, pastor of the Potters House in Dallas, speaking at a plenary session of the National Association of Black Journalists in August
