Romans 2:23-24

"You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God? For 'The Name of God is blasphemed among the gentiles because of you,' just as it is written."

Prominent "New Atheist" Richard Dawkins with former New Life Church Pastor and former National Association of Evangelicals President, Ted Haggard.

Posted online by Matthew Murray before he went and opened fire at New Life Church:

"You Christians brought this on yourselves. All I want to do is kill and injure as many of you...as I can, especially Christians who are to blame for most of the problems in the world."
Jacques Ellul on the nature of Anti-Christian propaganda:

"Rabshakeh's speech (2 Kings 18:17-37) rests on accurate data. His propaganda is aimed at a people which has experienced all this. This is why his argument is so strong. This is also why what I have written does not mean that the church is right and good and that the world is attacking it unjustly. The world's propaganda against Christians and the church states things which are incontestably true. Like all good propaganda, the attack on the church is well supported. But like all propaganda, it is radically false. It is untrue on two counts: first as regards the promises of Rabshakeh, and then as regards his honesty. For, although he claims that the church lies and he does not, Rabshakeh also lies, for his promises are false and merely a trap.

When he says the church is on the side of the oppressors and he comes bringing happiness he is lying, for he is a far worse oppressor than any before him.

...When the world attacks the church in this way...silence alone is legitimate."
