"The Americans combine the notions of Christianity and of liberty so intimately in their minds, that it is impossible to make them conceive the one without the other."
Alexis de Tocqueville
"Self-denial is the shining sore on the leprous body of Christianity."
"So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence."
"It ain't the parts of the Bible that I can't understand that bother me, it is the parts that I do understand."
"The puritanism of Christianity has played havoc with the moderation that an enlightened and tolerant critical spirit would have produced. I've noticed that in whatever country, county, town, or other region there is a regulation enjoining temperance, the population seems to be entirely composed of teetotallers and drunkards. There's a Bible on that shelf there. But I keep it next to Voltaire - poison and antidote."
"Say what you will about the Ten Commandments, you must always come back to the pleasant fact that there are only ten of them."
"What is more harmful than any vice? Active pity for all the failures and all the weak: Christianity."
"In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point."
"Unless the religious claims of the Bible are again acknowledged, its literary claims will, I think, be given only 'mouth honour' and that decreasingly."
"Heaven offers nothing that a mercenary soul can desire."
"Unless Christianity is wholly false, the perception of ourselves which we have in moments of shame must be the only true one."
"God never gave man a thing to do concerning which it were irreverent to ponder how the Son of God would have done it."
"Whatever makes men good Christians, makes them good citizens."
"Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and myself founded empires; but what foundation did we rest the creations of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded an empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him."
"I believe in person to person. Every person is Christ for me, and since there is only one Jesus, that person is the one person in the world at that moment."
"Philosophical argument has sometimes shaken my reason for the faith that was in me; but my heart has always assured me that the Gospel of Jesus Christ must be reality."
"If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this."
"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all thirty feet tall."
"This is a Christian nation."
"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ.For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."
