Christian

Famous quotes containing the word christian:

    What is clear is that Christianity directed increased attention to childhood. For the first time in history it seemed important to decide what the moral status of children was. In the midst of this sometimes excessive concern, a new sympathy for children was promoted. Sometimes this meant criticizing adults. . . . So far as parents were put on the defensive in this way, the beginning of the Christian era marks a revolution in the child’s status.
    C. John Sommerville (20th century)

    If I should ever decide in the future to discuss my deep Christian beliefs and condemnation and sinfulness, I would use another forum besides Playboy.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    The Christian resolution to find the world ugly and bad has made the world ugly and bad.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
