Quotations concerning or
exhibiting religious intolerance

By persons with last names beginning S to U

Some quotations which are religiously intolerant, or which discuss religious intolerance, are listed below:

Continued from a list of quotes K to R

A Serbian student in Australia: 1

"If you are a Serb, you go to church, and a person who doesn't go to church is by definition not a Serb. They are a Muslim, or one of those American sensitive new-age faggot types, or some other form of low life."

Andrew Sandlin, writing for the Chalcedon Foundation, calls for Christian believers to pray to God to exterminate those who think differently from themselves: 

"God extends his grace to his people (and mankind in general) when he destroys the wicked, because in destroying the wicked, he is averting their evil works that so plague God's children and mankind in general. When he maims and kills cultists and theological liberals, he prevents the spread of heretical doctrine that damns souls...God's judgment -- not his favor -- leads the world to righteousness. We should petition God's judgment on the wicked because judgment is a form of grace." 2

Editor's note: We are unaware of any data that shows that "cultists and theological liberals" have a higher rate of injury or shorter lifespan than average.

John Shattuck, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. State Department for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor. Stated at a press conference concerning the Department's 1997 Country Report on Human Rights on 1998-JAN-30:

"Ethnic and religious conflict remain the most intractable and dangerous problems in the world today."

Randall Terry, Founder of Operation Rescue. Reported by the News-Sentinel, Fort Wayne, IN, 1993-AUG-16:

"I want you to just let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good...Our goal is a Christian nation. We have a Biblical duty, we are called by God, to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want pluralism." 3

Editor's note: The word "pluralism" has two meanings. It is unclear whether he is referring to:

bullet"Pluralism" in the sense of religious diversity. or
bullet"Pluralism" as the belief that all religions are valid when interpreted within their own culture.

We suspect the former. He appears to want either extermination or oppression of non-Christians.

"TurtleSuds" posting to Progressiveu.org's blog:

"[Religious] Intolerance abounds. I argue that anyone seeking Truth need look no further than the course of human history on the planet. In any honest search, the scar that hate has left on the face of Earth cannot be minimized. Individuals might plead for their souls at the foot of the throne of God, but the overwhelming Truth will not hide or give refuge to propagators of hate."

"I believe that certain humans have been placed on the earth in order to speak the voice of Truth. Those persons have lived, preached, and died in the names of Peace and Love. The world has responded cruelly and inhumanely to them. How is it that the dominating world religions have gotten away with promoting hate in their names?"

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, speaking at  Ebenezer Baptist Church, to participants in the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference for the World Council of Churches in 2000-JAN.

"It was Christians, you know, not Pagans, who were responsible for the Holocaust. It was Christians, not Pagans, who lynched people here in the South, who burned people at the stake, frequently in the name of this Jesus Christ."

Editor's note: In the same speech, he reminded his audience that the racist apartheid policy in his native South Africa was also created by Christians, not Pagans.  

Unesco: Management of Social Transformations Programme (MOST) web site:

"As shown by the political impact of religious fundamentalism and ethno-religious movements, religious difference is a main factor of contemporary social conflict on local, national and global level." 3
