Notable Quotes

"The First Amendment of our Constitution protects our right to worship as we see fit and to practice our beliefs as long as we do not harm others. Conservative Christian beliefs on gay marriage are already protected by the Constitution. Our own particular religious beliefs though, should never be forced on others. This delicate balance of religious freedom and the rights of others has enabled diverse religious expression and beliefs to thrive in our vibrant democracy."

– The Rev. Jennifer Butler, founding executive director of Faith in Public Life, writing for Religion News Service.

"In a world of mass murders and school shootings, Christians must find a way to model peacemaking. Amid the darkness and bad news, the human tendency is to self-medicate by stockpiling whatever makes us feel safe and in control. But modeling the Jesus way requires us to dismantle the idols of power and security and fear in our own lives."

– David Gungor, worship pastor at Trinity Grace Church in the Tribeca neighborhood of Manhattan, writing for Religion News Service.
