In no other field of scientific endeavor do otherwise intelligent people feel free to make public claims based on prejudice and ignorance.

If no one had ever challenged religious authority, there'd be no democracy, no public schools, women's rights, improvements to science and medicine, evolution of slavery and no laws against child abuse or spousal abuse.

I was afraid to question the Bible or anything in it, and when I did, that's when I became involved with PFLAG and realized that my son was a perfectly normal human being and there was nothing for God to heal because Bobby was perfect just the way he was. Mary Griffith

That must stop if we're going to be able to develop a climate for peace. Queen Noor of Jordan

There are always those who are willing to surrender local self-government and turn over their affairs to some national authority in exchange for a payment of money out of the Federal Treasury.

Calvin Coolidge

In an average day, you may well be confronted with some species of bullying or bigotry, or some ill-phrased appeal to the general will, or some petty abuse of authority.

Everybody devises tactics for getting through such moments; try behaving "as if" they need not be tolerated and are not inevitable. Christopher Hitchens
