Author: A. N. Wilson
2. "Art was the very antithesis of crass moralism."
Author: Alain De Botton
3. "The anything-goes passiveness of the religious and political Left is matched by the preachy moralism of the religious and political Right. The person who uncritically embraces any party line is guilty of an idolatrous surrender of her core identity as Abba's Child. Neither liberal fairy dust nor conservative hardball addresses our ragged human dignity."
Author: Brennan Manning
4. "The same president who has insisted that core moralism drives him has brought America to its lowest moral standing in history."

Author: Michael S. Horton
6. "This does not, therefore, mean `the gospel reveals justification by faith as the true scheme of salvation, as opposed to Jewish self-help moralism'. When we unpack it fully, in the light of subsequent passages in the letter, it means:The gospel - the announcement of the lordship of Jesus the Messiah - reveals God's righteousness, his covenant faithfulness, his dealing with the sin of the world through the fulfilment of his covenant in this Lord Jesus Christ. He has done all this righteously, that is, impartially. He has dealt with sin, and rescued the helpless. He has thereby fulfilled his promises."
Author: N. T. Wright
7. "Indeed, compulsive and rigid moralism arises in given persons precisely as the result of a lack of sense of being. Rigid moralism is a compensatory mechanism by which the individual persuades himself to take over the external sanctions because he has no fundamental assurance that his own choices have any sanction of their own"
Author: Rollo May
8. "Postmodern people have been rejecting Christianity for years, thinking that it was indistinguishable from moralism."
Author: Timothy Keller
9. "Our Western society is so deeply divided between these two approaches (moralism, self-discovery) that hardly anyone can conceive of any other way to live. If you criticize or distance yourself from one, everyone assumes you have chosen to follow the other, because each of these approaches tends to divide the whole world into two basic groups. The moral conformists say: "the immoral people -- the people who 'do their own thing' -- are the problem with the world, and moral people are the solution." The advocates of self-discovery say: "The bigoted peole -- the people who say, 'We have the Truth' -- are the problem with the world, and progressive people are the solution."
Author: Timothy Keller
10. "The ironic thing about legalism is that it not only doesn't make people work harder, it makes them give up. Moralism doesn't produce morality; rather, it produces immorality."
Author: Tullian Tchividjian
11. "La vie sexuelle étroite, misérable, prétendument "apolitique" doit être étudiée dans son rapport avec les problèmes de la société autoritaire. La politique n'a pas pour domaine les déjeuners diplomatiques, mais la vie quotidienne. La conscience sociale est donc indispensable dans la vie quotidienne. Si les 1800 millions d'habitants de la planète parvenaient à comprendre l'action des cent principaux diplomates, tout irait pour le mieux ; la société et les besoins de l'homme ne seraient plus dès lors gouvernés par l'intérêt des armuriers et des politiciens. Mais ces 1800 millions d'hommes seront incapables de maîtriser leur propre destin tant qu'ils n'auront pas pris conscience de leur vie personnelle dans sa modestie. Ce qui les empêche, ce sont ces deux puissances intérieures : le moralisme sexuel et le mysticisme religieux. (p. 35, Préface de la seconde édition)"
Author: Wilhelm Reich
12. "L'inconvénient majeur de la liaison passagère, du point de vue de l'économie sexuelle, c'est qu'elle ne permet pas une adaptation sensuelle des partenaires aussi complète que la liaison durable, ni par conséquent une satisfaction sexuelle aussi complète. Du point de vue de l'économie sexuelle, c'est là l'objection sérieuse à la liaison passagère et le meilleur argument en faveur de liaison durable. Les champions du mariage pousseront ici un soupir d'aise, croyant pouvoir réintroduire frauduleusement le moralisme monogamique. Mais nous serons obligés de les décevoir à nouveau : quand nous parlons de liaison durable, nous ne fixons pas de limites de temps ; du point de vue de l'économie sexuelle, il se peut que cet liaison dure des semaines, des mois, deux ans ou dix ans ; et nous ne disons pas non plus que cette relation doit ou devrait être monogamique ; car nous ne fixons pas de normes. (p. 193)"
Author: Wilhelm Reich
