Politics

Everybody has a little bit of Watergate in him.   Billy Graham

At a time when our country is waging two wars, approval ratings for Congress are at historic lows, unemployment is at a 70-year high and financial institutions have collapsed around us, I can’t imagine anyone seriously opposing a National Day of Prayer.   Franklin Graham

In politics the first act of the professional politician is to accuse the other side of being professional politicians.   Bill Vaughan

The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions, that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all. I like a little rebellion now and then.   Thomas Jefferson 

He who surrenders himself without reservation to the temporal claims of a nation, or a party, or a class is rendering to Caesar that which, of all things, most emphatically belongs to God: himself.   C.S. Lewis

Politics are not the task of a Christian.    Dietrich Bonhoeffer

He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.  Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The coziness between church and state is good for the state and bad for the church.   G.K. Chesterton

I see the confusion of politics and religion as one of the greatest barriers to grace. C. S. Lewis observed that almost all crimes of Christian history have come about when religion is confused with politics. Politics, which always runs by the rules of ungrace, allures us to trade away grace for power, a temptation the church has often been unable to resist.   Philip Yancey

Politics draws lines between people; in contrast, Jesus’ love cuts across those lines and dispenses grace. That does not mean, of course, that Christians should not involve themselves in politics. It simply means that as we do so we must not let the rules of power displace the command to love.    Philip Yancey

You can never have a revolution in order to establish a democracy. You must have a democracy in order to have a revolution.   G.K. Chesterton

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.    Voltaire

Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind…War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.    John F. Kennedy 

The framers of our Constitution meant we were to have freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.   Billy Graham

It is not in the nature of politics that the best men should be elected. The best men do not want to govern their fellowmen.   George Macdonald

That once a year we should hang someone in government as an example to his fellows.   Lyn Nofziger
