A friend or co-worker shares a political,

I am a deeply religious nonbeliever -
this is a somewhat new kind of religion.
- Albert Einstein

All major religious traditions
carry basically the same message,
that is love, compassion and forgiveness.
The important thing is they should
be part of our daily lives.
- Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama

In many ways, it is easier to be a good giver than a good receiver.
The giver chooses the gift and the timing.
More important, societal and religious traditions
tend to elevate the status of giver and lower the status of receiver.
When the Bible (Acts 20:32-35) speaks of it being
more blessed to give than to receive,
I believe that a better translation might be
"take" rather than "receive," as the context
of that passage is "coveting."
Certainly there is nothing blessed about coveting,
stealing, begging, or demanding,
however the skill of graciously receiving a freely offered gift
is another matter entirely.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected
in a cosmic religion for the future:
It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology;
it covers both the natural and the spiritual,
and it is based on a religious sense
aspiring from the experience of all things,
natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
- Albert Einstein

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully
as when they do it from religious conviction.
- Blaise Pascal

Christian voters should start looking

I have an almost religious zeal...
not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me,
the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature,
linking up.
- Dan Millman

Fear of death makes us devoid both of valor and religion.
For want of valor is want of religious faith.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

I'm not religious at all,
but I believe in God very strongly.
- Bono

More and more people care about religious tolerance
as fewer and fewer care about religion.
- Alexander Chase

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Private religious speech can't be discriminated against.
It has to be treated equally with secular speech.
- Samuel Alito

The way to silence religious disputes is to take no notice of them.
- Thomas Jefferson

I claim that human mind or human society
is not divided into watertight compartments
called social, political and religious.
All act and react upon one another.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

A vow is a purely religious act
which cannot be taken in a fit of passion.
It can be taken only with a mind purified
and composed and with God as witness.
- Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi

Everyone has an opinion on many subjects
and is ready to share those opinions -
labeling them as "truth."
Sometimes it is relatively easy
to filter out these opinions.
Upon hearing an ad for the latest
weight-loss powder on late-night TV,
our skepticism leaps to our defense.
However, if we have heard the same opinion for years
from our parents, friends,
government officials, or religious leaders,
we are more likely to believe without questioning
than to raise our filter of skepticism
and ask the hard questions.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It was seldom that I attended any religious meetings,
as my parents had not much faith in and were never
so unfortunate as to unite themselves with any of the religious sects.
- Orson Pratt

You have to be an original individual;
you have to find your innermost core on your own,
with no guide, no guiding scriptures.
It is a dark night, but with the intense fire of inquiry
you are bound to come to the sunrise.
Everybody who has burned with intense inquiry
has found the sunrise.
Others only believe.
Those who believe are not religious,
they are simply avoiding the great adventure
of religion by believing.
- Osho

Doubt is part of all religion.
All the religious thinkers were doubters.
- Isaac Bashevis Singer

liberty from a room of silent,

national policy on science and medicine.

because it leads, all too easily, to the most dangerous kind of war:
religious war.

A just laicism allows religious freedom.
The state does not impose religion but rather gives
space to religions with a responsibility toward civil society,
and therefore it allows these religions to be factors in building up society.
- Joseph Ratzinger

At religious instruction classes, I encountered The
Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan,
and the sincerity of the traveller in that book was overwhelming.
- Lionel Blue

The problem with liberal Protestantism in America is
not that it has not been orthodox enough,
but that it has lost a lot of religious substance.
- Peter L. Berger

Many religious confessions share common values.
They teach that we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us.
- Russell M. Nelson

Work is a substitute religious experience for many workaholics.
- Mary Daly

So one reason the science educators panic at the first
sign of public rebellion is that they fear exposure
of the implicit religious content in what they are teaching.
- Phillip E. Johnson

Let's say black, the whole black religious experience,
here, is very impressive to me, because when I first
arrived I realized that people carry their faith with so much pride.

is the end of honest politics,
