"I don’t believe in a moral command economy where you are told everything to do and everything is centred around the Church.

It’s not healthy for ju-ju men to hop around the altar and tell you what’s bad or good.” - Dermot Morgan

"The unbeliever is not obliged to fit his morality and his facts into the four corners of any religion or tradition or inherited dogma.

He is always in a position to review and to revise his teaching and his experiences; to absorb new knowl
edge and to remould his ideas according to the new light he receives. He has no Church dogmas to hinder him from searching what he knows not by what he knows, and ‘closing up truth to truth.’

He also knows that, at the least, his new thoughts mean growth, and not stagnation; and he is always possessed with the inspiring hope that the glowing thought which he plucks to-day from the darkness of the unknown may tomorrow be the light showing the way to greater and more important truths.” - Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner

It might make some people feel good to talk about ‘‘a higher level of existence’’ or a ‘‘guiding force,’’ but there is no evidence for anything of the sort. I couldn’t and still can’t even figure out what such quasi-religious humbug means.

These liberal reconstructions also struck me as too far from what most people
in churches believe. The kind of religious beliefs that control people’s lives and
lead them to take stands on political and moral issues cannot be the watery spirituality that is vague enough to avoid conflicting with anything.

There is no point in going to Church or praying to something so indeterminate. No ‘higher level of existence’ could save believers or help them get to heaven or perform miracles or create the world. - Walter Sinnott-Armstrong


"Secularism owes this duty to itself, that it educate its children in the
bottom facts of truth, and not leave them exposed to the deceitful allurements
of well-masked falsehood.

When I see the money that is spent in dotting our cities, towns, villages, and farm
lands with church spires, and church colleges, and church institutions of all kinds and then compare the spectacle with the few, the very, very few, Free-thought institutions, I am forced to believe that a little hell fire doctrine is a pretty good thing to burn holes through pockets.” - Voltairine de Cleyre
