- "When I was in my early 20s I converted to Catholicism after a long period of searching. What I think drew me to the Catholic church is that in Catholicism, prayer suffuses all of one's life by virtue of the sacraments. Prayer is not something which occurs just on Sunday, it doesn't occur only at particular moments of intensity or by particular conventions, one's whole life is given up to prayer in many, many modes. And so everything to do with the faith is trying to put you in relationship with God and trying to make that relationship grow deeper and more mature." - Kevin Hart

My view is, if you don't want to have babies and you don't want to bond, then you shouldn't be having sexual intercourse." - Janet E. Smith

Even though Reinhold Niebuhr, the great mainline Protestant theologian, didn't think highly of Billy Graham, he and Graham still, clearly, had more in common, both theologically and in their attitudes toward religion in public life." - Ross Douthat

- "The period of Catholic ascendancy was on the whole one of the most deplorable in the history of the human mind. . . .
