Hijacked by Religion. (quotes)
Not 5 mins after I put the TVnews on i hear a senior police
Captain at a news conference say...

"Im reminded of an old biblical story"
"The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing"
While that classic quote is a little fuzzy to trace. Its believed to be from the 1920s and there's no evidence its from the bible or even biblical times.

Damn annoying theist keep taking the good and ignoring their evil.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

RE: Hijacked by Religion. (quotes)
Its a tricky quote to pin down... Its the sort of thing that's usually attributed to whoever said it last, which would be John F Kennedy.

I always thought it was Winston Churchill who said it... But maybe not.

Either way its definitely not biblical.

If it was from Jesus, then not tearing up the Old Testament was (evil) doing nothing.

in some ways its great that Jesus stories not only did not void the the old testament, but reiterated its validity, makes exposing their BS allot easier.

I believe it was Winston Churchill to FDR begging for him to enter WWII and keep Europe out of Hitlers hands. Of course Churchill had to go blow the shit out of the captured French fleet before FDR would take him seriously.

Churchill quotes are awesome: my favorite was as a comeback to a dinner guest.
Bessie Braddock: “Sir, you are drunk.”
Churchill: “Madam, you are ugly. In the morning, I shall be sober.”

The French fleet hadn't been captured... Which is why it was such a controversial move.

Churchill gave the French navy an ultimatum... sail to Scapa Flow, sail to New York, scuttle or be sunk by the Royal Navy...

I seen a bit of that on a doco, the UK was worried the NAZI's would have the french fleet handed to them as a french capitulation tactic.

Plenty of Nietzsche was confiscated by Nazis for their own ends, though they weren't really religious.
