"So Dad, if you won't pay gays at World Vision to feed starving children, why do you pay gays at the grocery store to feed yourself?"

"Sometimes, after the iceberg or the explosion, the lifeboat is safer than the luxury liner, though getting on it requires an urgent rearrangement of your body and your expectations."

"The frog shower in Magnolia provided more compelling proof of God’s existence than anything in God’s Not Dead."

"The Pentecostal treatment of AIDS is spurious in the extreme; I do not mean to suggest otherwise. But it is mistaken to think, as Westerners so often do, that this treatment is the refuge of the desperate, the poor, the people who have nowhere else to turn."

"In theory, I do not condone book burning. But I couldn’t let something this atrocious live."

"This is a game that is so beautifully Methodist, I’m almost in tears."
