(p. 3. The Culture of Disbelief. Stephen L. Carter. 1993.)

"The skeptical relativist attempt to mandate a naked public square is undemocratic. It is also a danger to democracy." (Henry Hyde)

(Don Feder. Ibid.)

"Public governmental opposition to Christians is growing." (Kevin Swanson. The Second Mayflower. Lafayette, LA. 1997.p. 58)

Within my own lifetime, I have seen the most ferocious assaults on Christian faith and morals; first on the part of the intellectual community, and then on the part of the government…the federal government has not even tried to conceal its hostility to religion." (Senator Jesse Helms)

Why is it that the Rev. Jesse Jackson can quote the Bible in support of his pet causes, but conservative ministers and lay people must argue purely on secular grounds for their social and political agenda?…It seems that mixing religion and politics is acceptable as long as the road turns to the left."

(William Donohoe. Twilight of Liberty. p. 28)

"The evangelical impact on American politics stirs up daily wrath in the press and from politicians, because it reintroduces into politics a dimension which politicians largely have sought to avoid: moral confrontation.

Chalcedon Report. Dec. 1981.)
