Marvin Olasky quotes from a new book edited by William Federer:
He Doth Quote Us POTUS
"We Americans are now face to face not with abstract theories but with cruel, relentless facts. There has now come a time when you and I must see the cold, inexorable necessity of saying to these inhumane, unrestrained seekers of world conquest and permanent world domination by the sword: 'You seek to throw our children and our children's children into your form of terrorism and slavery. You have now attacked our own safety. You shall go no further.'"
"There can be no appeasement with ruthlessness. There can be no reasoning with an incendiary bomb (Some say) the United States might just as well throw its influence into the scale of a dictated peace, and get the best out of it we can. They call it a 'negotiated peace.' Nonsense! Is it a negotiated peace if a gang of outlaws surrounds your community?"
"No greater thing could come to our land today than a revival of the spirit of religion. I doubt if there is any problem -- social, political, or economic -- that would not melt away before the fire of such a spiritual awakening."
"We guard ourselves against all evils -- spiritual as well as material -- which may beset us. We guard against the forces of anti-Christian aggression, which may attack us from without, and the forces of ignorance and fear which may corrupt us from within."
"We face one of the great choices of history the continuation of civilization as we know it versus the ultimate destruction of all that we have held dear -- religion against godlessness."
"As Commander-in-chief I take pleasure in commending the reading of the Bible to all who serve in the armed forces of the United States."
"No governmental organization in all history has been able to keep the human touch to the same extent as church and private effort."
The new book, The Faith of FDR, is published in honor of the anniversary of Roosevelt's birth 125 years ago, January 30th.
