Notable Quotes


   "... Every modern institution faces crises in this complex, chaotic century. What differentiates great organizations is whether and how they react, specifically their ability to galvanize a robust, united response to their challenges. Faced with urgent crises, healthy organizations rally together to save the institution they love. Unhealthy organizations play the blame game."

– Chris Lowney, writing in "Is the Catholic Church a Capsizing Ship?" for Religion News Service.


“Religion is a very complex subject, spanning the whole spectrum of human behavior. It can be an ethical, exalted expression, but religion can also be a mind-control technique to subjugate the masses.”

– Religion scholar Robert Forte, commenting in "How San Francisco's Summer of Love Sparked Today's Religious Movements" by Don Lattin for Religion News Service.
