    Between the iron gates of fate,
    The seeds of time were sown,
    And watered by the deeds of those
    Who know and who are known;
    Knowledge is a deadly friend
    If no one sets the rules
    The fate of all mankind I see
    Is in the hands of fools

    “Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.”

    Barry M. Goldwater

    “Today Christians … stand at the head of [this country]… I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity .. We want to fill our culture again with the Christian spirit … We want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theater, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the *poison of immorality* which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of *liberal excess* during the past …(few) years.”

    - The Speeches of Adolf Hitler, 1922-1939, Vol. 1 (Oxford University Press)

    Jackie Robinson: 'I Cannot Stand and Sing the Anthem. I Cannot Salute the Flag'
    African-American baseball pioneer Jackie Robinson wrote in his autobiography that he couldn't sing the anthem or salute the flag because "I know that I am a black man in a white world."

    I think how hard it must have been a person of color or a certain religion in earlier times like 50 or 100+ years ago in the U.S I thought things had gotten better? How quickly things regress. I can't blame Jackie R for feeling that way. We are suppose to be the land of the free. That doesn't always seem to be the case.
