All You To Need Know About D. James Kennedy

The Amway-loving reverend, who was funeralized yesterday, left behind some great quotes, too. Among my favorites:

"Biblically justified." (On George W. Bush's decision to invade Iraq in 2003)

"If homosexuals win the right to ‘marry,’ expect further similarly argued claims challenging legal barriers to polygamy, bestiality, and child marriage.”

“To put it simply, no Darwin, no Hitler. … We have had 150 years of the theory of Darwinian evolution, and what has it brought us? Whether Darwin intended it or not, millions of deaths, the destruction of those deemed inferior, the devaluing of human life, increasing hopelessness. … The time has come to recognize that evolution is a bad idea and should be, frankly, discarded into the dustbin of history.”

“There are some who would accuse us of trying to Christianize America. Am I trying to Christianize America? You bet your boots I am!”

"We are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government… our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors – in short, over every aspect and institution of human society.”

“SEX WITH CHILDREN? HOMOSEXUALS SAY YES!” (Headline from Kennedy's newsletter)

"Diabolical." (On the separation between church and state)
