Christian Religious Houses

Famous quotes containing the words christian, religious and/or houses:

    The Christian always swears a bloody oath that he will never do it again. The civilized man simply resolves to be a bit more careful next time.

    After coming into contact with a religious man I always feel I must wash my hands.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    In America the taint of sectarianism lies broad upon the land. Not content with acknowledging the supremacy as the Diety, and with erecting temples in his honor, where all can bow down with reverence, the pride and vanity of human reason enter into and pollute our worship, and the houses that should be of God and for God, alone, where he is to be honored with submissive faith, are too often merely schools of metaphysical and useless distinctions. The nation is sectarian, rather than Christian.
    James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851)
