Quote(s) of the Week (August 11, 1996)...

On Support From Ambassador Keyes...

"Jack Kemp is a good choice for Bob Dole. It appears that Senator Dole has heard the voices of grassroots Republicans who are the heart of the party. They made it clear to Senator Dole that no candidate who did not affirm the party's pro-life principles would be acceptable. This and our platform together provide a firm basis on which Republicans across the country can now move forward to defeat Bill Clinton in November. I urge Pat Buchanan to join with all of his fellow Republicans so that we can get on with the business of defeating Bill Clinton and maintaining a strong Republican majority in Congress."

    --Alan Keyes, in a press release dated 8/9/96. Received via CNEWS 8/14/96.

On the Lighter, But Still Accurate Side...

"By 1992, Bill Clinton had taken so many different positions on the issues of the day that he could have held a presidential debate with himself."

    --Paul Greenberg, nationally syndicated columnist and editorial page editor
      of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, on Bill Clinton's inconsistencies.  
      Washington Times, August 5, 1996.  Page A16.

On Calling It As We See It...

"We have ridiculed the absolute truth of God's word and called it pluralism. We have worshipped false gods and called it multiculturalism. We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle or diversity. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare. We have killed the pre-born and called it choice. We have neglected to discipline our children and have called it building self-esteem. We have polluted the airwaves with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. We have censored God from our public life and called it religious freedom. We have abused power and called it political savvy."

    --Exerpts of a prayer delivered on the floor of the Kansas Legislature by Joe 
      Wright of Central Christian Church in Wichita, and repeated last week in the
      U.S. House of Representatives.   Washington Times, August 5, 1996.  Page A7.

On that Great Sucking Sound in Washington...

"Federal tax collections were $5,365 per person in the year ended June 1996, up 25 percent from the average of the $4,293 in 1992, just before Mr. Clinton took office. In the same period, compensation per worker (wages, salaries and benefits) rose in the neighborhood of 10 percent."

    --H. Erich Heinemann, chief economist of Heinemann Economic Research, a division 
      of Brimberg & Co., institutional brokers in New York.    Washington Times, 
      August 4, 1996.  Page B1.

On What it Takes to End a Life...

"It took place some time ago. It was only done after a series of consultations with a number of consultants."

    --Robert Winston, senior surgeon from Queen Charlotte's Hospital in London,
      England.  His statement to the BBC was concerning a pregnant British woman's 
      abortion of one of her healthy fetuses (read children).  Pro-life activists 
      only hours earlier had won a court injunction banning a London hospital from 
      carrying out the operation.  The woman wanted to abort one of the children 
      because she felt she could only financially support one more child.  All the 
      donations from pro-life organization were for naught.  Washington Times,  
      August 7, 1996.  Front page.

On Providing an Alternative...

"Before you pick up the telephone to schedule an appointment with an abortion clinic or to schedule a consultation with Jack Kevorkian, call Project Life."

    --Cardinal Adam Maida, archbishop of Detroit, concerning the project he set up 
      to help women who feel they have no alternatives to abortion and people 
      considering physician assisted suicide.  The hotline for project Life is 
      313-237-5755.  Washington Times, August 7, 1996.  Page A2.

On Another Alternative...

"If my people, which are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin, and heal their land."

    --God.  II Chronicles 7:14 (NIV)
