Quotes

"Monotheism owes its existence not to philosophic speculation about the nature of reality or knowledge or virtue, but to acceptance of reality identified with a supreme being."
"I thought it was dishonest. … It was a soundbite put inin a way to give the impression that I was blaming Sandy HookHook on atheists," Dasher said. "I'm not suggesting that all atheists are evil or that all religious people are good. There's good people in both groups."
Senior pastor Andrew Gardener said, "As a church we felt that our response should be to have a response. We feel passionate about justice, it sits at the heart of God and we feel God has been stirring it in our hearts over the years, so our building is open as a place of refuge for anybody that needs it...we want to make sure we're open for anybody in need.”"
"There is 'national unity' in Egypt when it comes to patriarchy, regardless of religion and education" Zakher said, triggering laughs from the attendees
