->Someone might argue, "If my falsehood enhances God's truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?" Why not say -- as we are being slanderously reported as saying and as some claim that we say -- "Let us do evil that good may result?" Their condemnation is deserved.

->IT'S NOT A FUCKIN' BOOK! It's a weapon. A weapon aimed right at the hearts and minds of the weak and the desperate. It will give us control of them. If we want to rule more than one small fuckin' town, we have to have it. People will come from all over, they'll do exactly what I tell 'em if the words are from the book. It's happened before and it'll happen again. All we need is that book.

->When you say ‘radical right’ today, I think of these moneymaking ventures by fellows like Pat Robertson and others who are trying to take the Republican Party away from the Republican Party, and make a religious organization out of it. If that ever happens, kiss politics goodbye.
-->--Sen. '''Barry Goldwater''' (R-AZ)

->Chick-fil-A is a fried chicken restaurant chain whose business it is, apparently, to [[SmallNameBigEgo dictate what the United States policy on same-sex marriage should be]]. After public statements on the subject in the summer of 2012, the company became a rallying point for conservatives opposed to marriage equality. And they sold a lot of chicken in the bargain. The irony of making statements about homosexuals based on Leviticus 18:22 & 20:13, while selling food [[{{Hypocrite}} in violation of Leviticus 3:17]], was lost on the company and their patrons.
-->--'''''Wiki/RationalWiki'''''

->Benny Hinn is a televangelist, faith healer and sith lord of apparently staggering popularity and influence, whose main goal seems to be to [[KlingonPromotion wait for Billy Graham to die]] so that he can take over what he deems to be the leadership of evangelical fundamentalism in the US, for God has shown him that Graham’s death will mark the beginning of a huge American revival of religious fervor (meaning, of course, that you should start sending the money you send to Graham, to him instead).... In 2001, {{Creator/HBO}}’s ''America Undercover'' tried to follow up 5 of the people Hinn had allegedly healed at a particular crusade, but when HBO checked back a year later, none of the parishioners had been healed at all (two had died). Hinn, of course, blamed the dismal results on HBO. In reality, his assurance that his victims are well after his faith healing is rather likely to lead his victims to abort the treatments and medication schemes they are already using, so it is definitely not an innocent matter of innocuous faith. {{Creator/CBC}} later exposed Hinn’s tendency to use his church’s money for private purposes, and for [[{{Bouncer}} employing security guards disguised as men from the church]] to keep ''genuinely'' sick followers away from the stage so he doesn’t need to deal with them (or risk being exposed to something that he cannot heal). Even his efforts to combat the “twin evils” of Islam and secularism seem primarily to be [[MonsterProtectionRacket schemes to make money.]]

->After one of his political speeches in Texas, a group of Baptist elders approached him and offered him a fine church and house in Houston if he would become their minister. He thanked them and said that the offer was very fine indeed but he couldn't take it as he didn't believe in God. "Come now, Mr. Gore, that's not the proposition we made you, is it?"
-->--'''Creator/GoreVidal''' on Sen. T.P. Gore, ''Palimpsest''
