My father was an atheist and he always described himself as a Serb. OK, maybe we were Muslim for 250 years, but we were orthodox before that and deep down we were always Serbs, religion cannot change that. We only became Muslims to survive the Turks. ~ Emir Kusturica
Serbs Religion quotes by Emir Kusturica
How ought we to love God, Father?" he asked in a whisper.
"By loving men, my son"
"And how ought we to love men?"
"By trying to guide them along the right path"
"And what is the right path?"
"The one that rises"
- Nikos Kazanzakis, Christ Recrucified ~ Nikos Kazantzakis
Serbs Religion quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
Only when religion is exposed to light of day, only when the believers walk out of the proverbial cave in that light, will humanity feel the warmth of the sun on their corporate faces. In the light of truth one will not need to fear for loss of faith or hope or even love. For faith, hope and love are parts of the human spiritual experience. Spirituality at its best is what we may find when we relieve ourselves of the fear of loss. ~ Leviak B. Kelly
Serbs Religion quotes by Leviak B. Kelly
There is no truth sure enough to justify persecution. ~ John Milton
Serbs Religion quotes by John Milton
Normal people redirect their sexual energy all the time, but religion takes that skill and hijacks it. Religion says, "No, you cannot do that, that is sinful. Direct energy toward god."
Sexual desire does not disappear with increased religiosity and activity. Instead, it gets redirected but the thoughts and incoming stimulation continue. ~ Darrel Ray
Serbs Religion quotes by Darrel Ray
Impression minus expression leads to spiritual depression. ~ Joseph C. Aldrich
Serbs Religion quotes by Joseph C. Aldrich
I would not dare so dishonor my Creator's name by attaching it to this filthy book. ~ Thomas Paine
Serbs Religion quotes by Thomas Paine
You haven't heard a damn word I've said. See, this is why I can't stand your kinds. You light your candles and mumble your latin spells and pray to a god who isn't there, doesn't care, or is just plain crazy or cruel or both. The world burns and you praise the asshole who either set it or let it. ~ Rick Yancey
Serbs Religion quotes by Rick Yancey
Freedom requires religion in society, not in individuals. ~ Mitt Romney
Serbs Religion quotes by Mitt Romney
Any type of violence is against God, against religion, against spirituality, against humanity, and against nature. Maturity comes only through non-violence, love, and all-inclusiveness. ~ Amit Ray
Serbs Religion quotes by Amit Ray
I think there's nothing better in the world than a spirited discussion about the Bible and Jesus and God and the Catholic faith, or the Jewish faith, or the Muslim faith - any religion. ~ Elizabeth Vargas
Serbs Religion quotes by Elizabeth Vargas
For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us. ~ Charles Bukowski
Serbs Religion quotes by Charles Bukowski
[S]cience has itself become a kind of religion. ~ Carl Sagan
Serbs Religion quotes by Carl Sagan
The Ultimate Truth is too sophisticated a concept for you idiots worshiping this-that asinine sky-god. ~ Fakeer Ishavardas
Serbs Religion quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
He respected the power of faith, the benevolence of churches, the strength religion gave so many people ... and yet, for him, the one intellectual suspension of disbelief that was imperative if one were truly going to "believe" had always proved too big an obstacle for his academic mind. "I want to believe," he heard himself say. ~ Dan Brown
Serbs Religion quotes by Dan Brown
Religion should be subject to commonsense appraisal and rational review, as openly discussible as, say, politics, art and the weather. The First Amendment, we should recall, forbids Congress both from establishing laws designating a state religion and from abridging freedom of speech. There is no reason why we should shy away from speaking freely about religion, no reason why it should be thought impolite to debate it, especially when, as so often happens, religious folk bring it up on their own and try to impose it on others. ~ Jeffrey Tayler
Serbs Religion quotes by Jeffrey Tayler
My dad doesn't like religion much, but I grew up very close to the Baptist tradition. God isn't this distant thing. God is right here with you all the time. He's your buddy, and you can talk about everything. ~ Lucy Alibar
Serbs Religion quotes by Lucy Alibar
Religion is man's way of accepting life as an inevitable defeat. That it is not an inevitable defeat is a claim that cannot be defended in good faith. One can, of course, disperse one's life over the contingencies of every day, but even then it is only a ceaseless and desperate desire to live, and finally a regret that one has not lived. One can accept life, and accept it, at the same time, as a defeat only if one accepts that there is a sense beyond that which is inherent in human history -- if, in other words, one accepts the order of the sacred. A hypothetical world from which the sacred had been swept away would admit of only two possibilities: vain fantasy that recognizes itself as such, or immediate satisfaction which exhausts itself. It would leave only the choice proposed by Baudelaire, between lovers of prostitutes and lovers of clouds: those who know only the satisfactions of the moment and are therefore contemptible, and those who lose themselves in otiose imaginings , and are therefore contemptible. Everything is contemptible, and there is no more to be said. The conscience liberated from the sacred knows this, even if it conceals it from itself. ~ Leszek Kołakowski
Serbs Religion quotes by Leszek Kołakowski
Christianity is the only true and perfect religion ... ~ Benjamin Rush
Serbs Religion quotes by Benjamin Rush
During good times, it's easy to deride "big government" and talk about the inevitability of cutbacks. But during disasters, most everyone loses their free market religion and wants to know that their government has their backs. And if there is one thing we can be sure of, it's that extreme weather events like Superstorm Sandy, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, and the British floods - disasters that, combined, pummeled coastlines beyond recognition, ravaged millions of homes, and killed many thousands - are going to keep coming. ~ Naomi Klein
Serbs Religion quotes by Naomi Klein
Urging humans to be superhumans, on pain of death and torture, is the urging of terrible self-abasement at their repeated and inevitable failure to keep the rules. ~ Christopher Hitchens
Serbs Religion quotes by Christopher Hitchens
The idea is that human culture as broadly defined
art, politics, technology, religion, and so on
evolves in much the way biological species evolve: new cultural traits arise and may flourish or perish, and as a result whole institutions can belief systems form and change. ~ Robert Wright
Serbs Religion quotes by Robert Wright
There are things in this world most of us never see," I find myself saying. "We've trained ourselves not to see them, or try to pretend we didn't if we do. But there's a reason why, no matter how sophisticated or primitive, every religion has demons. ~ Andrew Pyper
Serbs Religion quotes by Andrew Pyper
People say Jesus Christ is a god, and they pray to him. Likewise, the Navajos have a god. He is an everlasting god who never dies, and we pray to him for everything. We were created from white shell in a sacred, holy way. Part of the white shell was taken and put in our bodies, but no one can see it. White Shell is a god. We pray to her "to give us the invisible white shell shoes, white shell socks, clothing, feathers," and so on. This god is female and is out there, but we cannot see her. ~ John Holiday
Serbs Religion quotes by John Holiday
I'm not sure if that answers the question and I have absolutely no problem with any major world religion on Earth. ~ John Hodgman
Serbs Religion quotes by John Hodgman
...atheism leaves no room for excuses... ~ Travis Culliton
Serbs Religion quotes by Travis Culliton
Johnny Hart became much less funny after he found sobriety, and religion, around the same time. ~ Gene Weingarten
Serbs Religion quotes by Gene Weingarten
I am really glad I was raised Catholic. I like the fundamental aspects of that religion. I think they give you great grounding in terms of having a moral code. But I do not subscribe to any religion specifically now. ~ Frances O'Connor
Serbs Religion quotes by Frances O'Connor
The love between husband and wife starts with Bismillahirrahmanirrahiim, the husband praises his wife. Alhamdulillahirrabbil 'alamin- if it is interpreted horizontally- 'she is my wife who is to be praised. Arrahmanirrahiim, full of grace and compassion to me. Maliki yaumiddin, she truly rules my heart. After praising, there follows the determination of love. When this is done, then one may ask to be guided in the right path. ~ Emha Ainun Nadjib
Serbs Religion quotes by Emha Ainun Nadjib
Science lacks something very important that religion provides: a moral code. Survival of the fittest is a scientific fact, but it is a cruel ethic; the way of beasts, not a civilized society. Laws can only take us so far, and they must be based upon something - a shared moral code that rises from something. As that moral foundation recedes, so will society's values. ~ A.G. Riddle
Serbs Religion quotes by A.G. Riddle
(Dune's Frank) Herbert made religion the inescapable instrument of cultural change. ~ Joseph Bottum
Serbs Religion quotes by Joseph Bottum
One thing about great art: it made you love people more, forgive them their petty transgressions. It worked in the way that religion was supposed to, if you thought about it. ~ Nick Hornby
Serbs Religion quotes by Nick Hornby
I went into the ministry to use the church to elicit political change according to a soft Marxist vision of wealth distribution and proletarian empowerment. Edrita [his wife] could sense that I was on a long and uncertain path. She was always more conservative than I, but she did share my basic social values and was willing at least to let me test my political follies ... Whenever I read the New Testament after 1950, I was trying to read it entirely without its crucial premises of incarnation and resurrection. That required a lot of circular reasoning for me to establish what the text said. I habitually assumed that truth in religion was finally reducible to economics (with Marx) or psychosexual motives (with Freud) or self assertive power (with Nietzsche). It was truly a self-deceptive time for me, but I had no inkling of its insidious dangers. ~ Thomas C. Oden
Serbs Religion quotes by Thomas C. Oden
All these schools of though gradually transformed into legal institutions, the diversity of ideas and freedom of opinion that characterized their early development gave way to rigid formalism, strict adherence to precedent, and an almost complete stultification of independent though ~ Reza Aslan
Serbs Religion quotes by Reza Aslan
The problem is that faith based upon twisted information is nothing more than delusion - and delusion leads to division. It divided humanity, taking us into endless wars - separating us by race, religion, and politics. ~ R. Brown
Serbs Religion quotes by R. Brown
Lust may turn a man into a rapist, but religion pushes him into a murder. ~ M.F. Moonzajer
Serbs Religion quotes by M.F. Moonzajer
For the jungle dissolves and recreates over and over and over again, as the Hindu philosophers perceived millenniums ago and built their religion on it. All that we know of things that died more anciently than a month ago, is written in stone or brick or earthwork, or, perhaps more durable even than these, in legend. ~ John Still
Serbs Religion quotes by John Still
Thus inwardly armed with confidence in God and the unshakable stupidity of the voting citizenry, the politicians can begin the fight for the 'remaking' of the Reich as they call it. ~ Adolf Hitler
Serbs Religion quotes by Adolf Hitler
O Nanak, if a blind man goes to assay jewels, he shall not know their worth and shall return after making an exhibition of himself. ~ Guru Angad
Serbs Religion quotes by Guru Angad
Even if atheists were right
that prayer is wishful thinking
they are right only in relation to God, not in relation to wishing. The importance of prayer is that it is an expression of our spiritual nature, and when we wish for love, peace,for our own good and the good of others we define ourselves as more than flesh and blood. We define ourselves as hoping, loving, and imagining beings who crave to know the source of our being. ~ R. Joseph Hoffmann
Serbs Religion quotes by R. Joseph Hoffmann
God answers prayer in three ways: yes, no, and wait awhile. ~ Norman Vincent Peale
Serbs Religion quotes by Norman Vincent Peale
It is not that religion is merely useless, it is mischievous. It is mischievous by its idle terrors; it is mischievous by its false morality; it is mischievous by its hypocrisy; by its fanaticism; by its dogmatism; by its threats; by its hopes; by its promises. ~ Frances Wright
Serbs Religion quotes by Frances Wright
No man was born in chains; it is their fellow man who has put them in chains, and at any given time, every single man and woman has the absolute right to break free from those chains of any nature and of any form! It is not God who has put you in any sort of bondage! It is your fellow man who puts you in bondage in the name of God! ~ C. JoyBell C.
Serbs Religion quotes by C. JoyBell C.
More and more people care about religious tolerance as fewer and fewer care about religion. ~ Alexander Chase
Serbs Religion quotes by Alexander Chase
It was all very well going on about pure logic and how the universe was ruled by logic and the harmony of numbers, but the plain fact of the matter was that the Disc was manifestly traversing space on the back of a giant turtle and the gods had a habit of going round to atheists' houses and smashing their windows. ~ Terry Pratchett
Serbs Religion quotes by Terry Pratchett
