Quotes of the Morning

“Do you remember Randall Terry from the other week? You could hardly miss him. As the mouthpiece for the Schindler family he was practically everywhere on the news over the last few weeks as a brave defender of the life of a persecuted woman. Mr. Terry is a rabid anti-choice/pro-life (depending on the side of the argument you favor) activist with a long record of interesting statements in the media. This is the kind of man that ABCNNBCBSFox loves to interview. This is the kind of person that the news feels is worthy to take up your public airwaves. Here are a few of his more.. interesting.. statements, brought to you by David Neiwert’s fantastic blog, Orcinus.”

"The Declaration of Independence is an intrinsically Christian document. The four references to God there can only be the Christian God."
-Randall Terry, August 8, 1995

"I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you... I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good... Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism."
-Randall Terry, August 16, 1993

“Preaching intolerance and hate and an overthrow of the government. Just like Jesus on the Mount, eh? Nice start, but can you be more specific about what you’d do to this country Mr. Terry?”

"You better believe that I want to build a Christian nation, because the only option is a pagan nation. Not that the government can make someone a Christian by decree. A Christian nation would be defined as 'We acknowledge God in our body politic, in our communities, that the God of the Bible is our God, and, we acknowledge that His law is supreme."
-Randall Terry, August 8, 1995

"When I, or people like me, are running the country, you'd [abortion doctors] better flee, because we will find you, we will try you, and we'll execute you. I mean every word of it. I will make it part of my mission to see to it that they are tried and executed.
"You say, 'This is extreme!' Yeah, you're right. But imagine God Almighty sending people to hell just because they didn't follow His son? That's extreme. That's intolerance. Imagine Jesus saying that all other religions are false. Christianity claims to be the only way."
-Randall Terry, August 8, 1995

“And I don’t want you to think that only non-Christians or pro-choice believers get something from Mr. Terry. No.. He’s got a little something special saved up for the ladies.”

"The greatest crisis we face is not child killing. It's not the sodomites, it's not land tax, it's not the intrusion of the federal government into our lives, our families, as they crush our liberties. The greatest crisis we face tonight is a crisis of leadership. We are facing a crisis of righteous, courageous, physically oriented, male leadership. Male leadership!
God established patriarchy when he established the world. God established a patriarchal world. If we're going to have true reformation in America, it is because men once again, if I may use a worn out expression, have righteous testosterone flowing through their veins. They are not afraid of the contempt of their contemporaries. They are not here to get along. They are not even here to take issue. They are here to take over!"
-Randall Terry, August 8, 1995

“’Righteous testosterone’? No, I don’t think an expression like that can be worn out. Kind of like the ‘evil chemistry and evil biology’ that Ashcroft used to be so worried about. I was unaware that science was so.. religious.”
