Watching the Religious Right
The "fusion of religion and morality and public policy has now come about."
Lou Sheldon, of the Traditional Values Coalition, as quoted in the Dallas Morning News on March 13, 2005
“As the vice-regents of God, we are to bring His truth and His will to bear on every sphere of our world and our society. We are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government ... our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors - in short, over every aspect and institution of human society."
D. James Kennedy, of Coral Ridge Ministries, as quoted in the Christian Science Monitor on March 16, 2005
"This Republican Party of Lincoln has become a party of theocracy."
U.S. Representative Christopher Shays (R-Conn.) as quoted in the New York Times on March 23, 2005.
“In America, everyone has the right to try to influence political issues, regardless of his religious motivations. The problem is not with people or churches that are politically active. It is with a party that has gone so far in adopting a sectarian agenda that it has become the political extension of a religious movement.”
Former U.N. Ambassador and Congressman John C. Danforth (R-Mo.) in the New York Times, March 30, 2005
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”
