Quotes About The Anglican Church

"I did not worry about what a man or woman personally believed, but the nations official religion should be outwardly practiced by all its citizens. A religion was a political statement.

The nation needed an accepted position on such concerns. Hence the fines for not outwardly conforming to the national church." - Author: Margaret George

Id ask the butcher, pointing to the calves brains displayed in the front window. "I want me some lamb chop with handles on em." - Author: David Sedaris

Quotes About Inspired With Him
