George Carlin – The separation of church and state

Share this quote:
George CarlinI’m completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.

Thomas Paine – All national institutions of churches

Share this quote:
Thomas PaineAll national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit. I do not mean by this declaration to condemn those who believe otherwise; they have the same right to their belief as I have to mine. But it is necessary to the happiness of man, that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not Believe.

Thomas Paine   (1737-1809)

John F. Kennedy – America officially neither Catholic, Protestant…

Share this quote:
John F. KennedyI believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accept instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials, and where religious liberty is so indivisible that an act against one church is treated as an act against all.

Neil deGrasse Tyson – A school teacher asserted that evolution and the big bang are not scientific

Share this quote:
Neil deGrasse TysonPeople cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey school teacher asserted that evolution and the big bang are not scientific and that Noah’s ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it’s about the need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers.

Neil deGrasse Tyson   (Oct 5, 1958 -)
