Peggy Noonan Quotes

"Prayer is the hardest thing. And no one congratulates you for doing it because no one knows youre doing it, and if things turn out well they likely wont thank God in any case. But I have a feeling that the hardest thing is what we all better be doing now, and that its not only the best answer but the only one."

Bob Thurber Quotes

"Ive already got the storm figured out. Some idiot blew up the sun. Some dumb Russian general pushed the wrong button and launched one of their million missiles, or maybe NASA misaimed one of our test rockets. Either way, the sun is gone and were now engaged in a nuclear shootout. Its the end of everything. Batman and Superman arent coming and James Bond doesnt have a trick up his sleeve to save us this time. In a week or a month, well all freeze to death, just like in that Twilight Zone episode where the pretty lady is burning up with fever, dreaming the sun is baking the world dry, when really the Earth has dropped out of orbit, is hurtling further and further away from the sun, rapidly turning into a big ball of ice."

"Over and over these organizations tell America that family, above all, is what Christianity is about. Devotion to ones family is, indeed, a wonderful thing. Yet it is hardly something to brag about. For all except the most pathologically self-absorbed, love for ones parents, spouse, and children comes naturally. Jesus did not make it his business to affirm these ties; he didnt have to. Jews feel them, Buddhists feel them, Confucians and Zoroastrians and atheists feel them. Christianity is not about reinforcing such natural bonds and instinctive sentiments. Rather, Christianity is about challenging them and helping us to see all of humankind as our family. It seems clear that if Jesus had wanted to affirm the "traditional family" in the way that Pat Robertson claims, he would not have lived the way he did." - Author: Bruce Bawer
