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...
- "Were 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
Womens (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.
