Quote-a-palooza

“Religion and good morals are the only solid foundation of public liberty and happiness.” – Samuel Adams

“Christmas casts its glow upon us, as it does every year. And it reminds us that we need not feel lonely because we are loved, loved with the greatest love there has ever been or ever will be.” – Ronald Reagan

“He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.” – Roy L. Smith

“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” – Calvin Coolidge

“Christmas in Bethlehem. The ancient dream… the incarnation of perfect love.” – Lucinda Franks

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” – Charles Dickens

“At the summit of national power, politicians and bureaucrats are terrified at the idea of endorsing the religious views of the majority of Americans. Our First Amendment forbids the establishment of a state religion, but many of our governing elites are taking it a step further, outlawing its very existence from the public conversation.” – L. Brent Bozell

“It’s two centuries since the passage of the First Amendment, and our presidential candidates still cannot distinguish establishment from free exercise.” – Charles Krauthammer

“The leftist argument against religious Americans’ ‘injection of religion into politics’ is merely its way of trying to keep only the secular and religious left in the political arena- and the religious right, primarily evangelical Christians, out.” – Dennis Prager

“The true spirit of Christmas is ‘gratitude.’ No matter how much we have, or how little, or how much we have lost or been taken advantage of, gratitude is the answer… Let everyone now spend a few minutes writing down a list titled ‘I am grateful for…’ The gift of Christmas will come for you, even if you think you have nothing to give.” – David Usher

“It’s common, around this time of year, to hear people grumble about Christmas being ‘too commercial.’ They have a point, of course. It’s easy to get so caught up in the buying frenzy that we forget why we celebrate Christmas in the first place. But let’s not sell ourselves short. The observance of Jesus’ birth also inspires countless acts of kindness and generosity.” – Rebecca Hagelin

“This is the time of year, as Hillary Clinton once put it, when Christians celebrate ‘the birth of a homeless child’ – or, in Al Gore’s words, ‘a homeless woman gave birth to a homeless child.’ Just for the record, Jesus wasn’t ‘homeless.’ He had a perfectly nice home back in Nazareth. But he happened to be born in Bethlehem. It was census time and Joseph was obliged to schlep halfway across the country to register in the town of his birth. Which is such an absurdly bureaucratic over-regulatory cockamamie Big Government nightmare it’s surely only a matter of time before Massachusetts or California reintroduce it.” – Mark Steyn

“The Christmas season is upon us, which means it’s that special time of year for the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for the Separation of Church and State to make sure no wayward city council will allow a whiff of frankincense on government property. They must send out direct-mail fundraising letters asking ‘Help Us Crush a Crèche at Christmas!”‘ – L. Brent Bozell

“[D]o your civic duty this Christmas season and annoy a liberal…[C]onsider Christmasboarding a liberal while you still can. What is Christmasboarding? It’s quite simple really. Anytime a liberal approaches you in the coming days and wants to deny reality this Christmas, you simply hit them over the head with the truth… When a liberal steeped in political correctness approaches you and wishes you ‘Happy Holidays’ you simply respond by saying, ‘And a Merry Christmas to you’.” – J.J. Jackson
