Quote(s) of the Week (September 28, 1997)

On Speaking for the Masses...

"NOW may become a lonely haven for angry women who condemn Christian principles, hate men, favor alternative lifestyles, and support abortion-on-demand. Such attitudes do not represent the women in mainstream America whom I know."
--Karl Day, senior editor of Washington Watch, a publication of the Family Research Council, concerning the stand that the National Organization for Women has taken against PromiseKeepers. Washington Times for September 21, 1997. Page B4.

On Women's Beliefs...

"We’re tired of having radical feminist ideology pased off as the lock-step view of all women. As heirs of a tradition of strong, capable Christian women, we emphatically affirm that we are beneficiaries, not victims of our strong Christian faith."
--Diane Knippers, president of the Institute on Religion and Democracy. Her organization criticized the National Organization for Women’s (NOW) attack on the PromiseKeepers. Washington Times for Setpember 17, 1997. Front page.

On Losing All Sense of Perspective...

"Human happiness, and certainly human fecundity, are not as important as a wild and healthy planet. I know social scientists who remind me that people are part of nature, but it isn't true. Somewhere along the line -- at about a billion years ago, maybe half that -- we quit the contract and became a cancer. We have become a plague upon ourselves and upon the earth. Until such time as Homo Sapiens should decide to rejoin nature, some of us can only hope for the right virus to come along."
--David M. Graber, National Park Service. From the Daily Outrage for September 26, 1997.
