Quotes of the Morning: Dear God

"’This [disaster] is one of the greatest opportunities God has given us to share his love with people,’ said K.P. Yohannan, president of the Texas-based Gospel for Asia. In an interview, Yohannan said his 14,500 "native missionaries" in India, Sri Lanka, and the Andaman Islands are giving survivors Bibles and booklets about ‘how to find hope in this time through the word of God.’

In Krabi, Thailand, a Southern Baptist church had been ‘praying for a way to make inroads’ with a particular ethnic group of fisherman, according to Southern Baptist relief coordinator Pat Julian. Then came the tsunami, ‘a phenomenal opportunity’ to provide ministry and care, Julian told the Baptist Press news service.”
-Philadelphia Enquirer, January 9, 2005

“Thank God for 150,000 dead people. A phenomenal opportunity indeed. The Lord certainly brought their Church a blessing by slaughtering all of those people and leaving millions more to wallow in disease without adequate food, water, or shelter. A wonderful day indeed!”
-Skippy, with heavy, heavy sarcasm

“Hilary Faye: Mary, turn away from Satan. Jesus, he loves you.
Mary: You don't know the first thing about love.
Hilary Faye: I am *filled* with Christ's love!
[Hilary Faye throws a Bible at Mary]
Hilary Faye: You are just jealous of my success in the Lord.
Mary: [Mary hands Bible back to Hilary Faye] This is not a weapon, you idiot.”

“Former House speaker Newt Gingrich says he ‘got fed up with people who argue that somehow the concept of the creator wasn't central to how the Founding Fathers understood America.’ So in a book being published today, he includes a 19-page ‘Walking Tour of God in Washington, D.C.,’ cataloging references to the Bible, Moses and a heavenly father on the Capitol, monuments and memorials.

In the last 30 years, you had this politically correct delegitimizing of God in American public life, which I think is a denial of the core of American civilization,’ he said in a telephone interview yesterday.”
-Washington Post, January 9, 2005

“Mr. Gingrich you may remember divorced his second wife for a 33 year old staff member he was having an affair with. He divorced his first wife by serving her papers while she was in the hospital with cancer. Just giving a little perspective here..”

“It is as unprecedented as it is cunning, using all the right words and happiest faces in an attempt to speak directly to the nation's children about ‘tolerance and diversity.’ Once again, of course, those ideas include homosexual advocacy.
On November 10, 2004, a video remake of the song, ‘We Are Family,’ was created using the voices and images of over 100 beloved children's TV characters. On March 11, 2005, the video performance will air simultaneously on the Disney Channel, Nickelodeon and PBS. A similar video aired on those networks in 2002.
The nation's children will be all too familiar with the characters on the video, incuding those from Arthur, Barney, Blue's Clues, Bob the Builder, The Book of Pooh, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Dora the Explorer, Jimmy Neutron, Kim Possible, Lilo & Stitch: The Series, Little Mermaid, Madeline, The Magic School Bus, The Muppet Show, Rugrats, Sesame Street and SpongeBob SquarePants.”
-Agape Press (Christian News Service), January 10, 2005

“My God! Of course I knew about Tinky Winky thanks to the Reverend Falwell, and I think we all suspected Spongebob, but Bob the Builder? Come on… He’s a construction worker! Dora doesn’t surprise me too much.. I heard she was bilingual… Sigh. Why is it that Newt can get away with the things he says and no one questions his morality, but make a few comments about needing to accept and respect the gay and lesbian community and they jump all over you (in a strictly heterosexual way of course)?”

“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.”
-The Wizard of Oz
