Text Quotes
If a church offers no truth that is not available in the general culture - in, for instance, the editorials of the New York Times or, for that matter, of National Review - there is not much reason to pay it attention.  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) We shall not weary, we shall not rest, as we stand guard at the entrance gates and the exit gates of life, and at every step along way of life, bearing witness in word and deed to the dignity of the human person-of every human person  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Optimism is a matter optics, of seeing what you want to see and not seeing what you don’t want to see. Hope, on the other hand, is a Christian virtue. It is the unblinking acknowledgment of all that militates against hope, and the unrelenting refusal to despair. We have not the right to despair, and, finally, we have not the reason to despair  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) My hope that the Church will emerge as a strong leader in society is just that a hope. What I described in The Catholic Moment is not a prophecy but the outline of a possibility. There are no guarantees that my hopes expressed in The Catholic Moment will ever be realised  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Religion as a human phenomenon is as riddled through with potential for both good and evil as any other phenomenon  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) My eyes are wide open to the conflicts within the Church, but I don’t think you can call it schism  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) In the gay (Catholic) community, it would seem, the maxim is: love the sin and love the sinner, but hate anyone who calls it a sin or him a sinner  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) The first thing to say about politics is that politics is not the first thing  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Socialism is the religion people get when they lose their religion  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Progress without the reasoned freedom to think and act is regression to slavery  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) If the cause of poverty is marginalization, the cure is inclusion  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) In the absence of truth, power is the only game in town  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Where orthodoxy is optional, orthodoxy will sooner or later be proscribed  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Consumerism is, quite precisely, the consuming of life by the things consumed. It is living in a manner that is measured by having rather than being... and consumerism is hardly the sin of the rich. The poor, driven by discontent and envy, may be as consumed by what they do not have as the rich are consumed by what they do have. The question is not, certainly not most importantly, a question about economics. It is first and foremost a cultural and moral problem requiring a cultural and moral remedy  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Respect for the dignity of others includes treating them as rational creatures capable of being persuadad by rational argument, even in the face of frequent evidence to the contrary  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) For paradise we long. For perfection we were made... This longing is the source of the hunger and dissatisfaction that mark our lives... This longing makes our loves and friendships possible, and so very unsatisfactory. The hunger is for... nothing less than perfect communion with the... one in whom all the fragments of our scattered existence come together... we must not stifle this longing. It is a holy dissatisfaction. Such dissatisfaction is not a sickness to be healed, but the seed of a promise to be fulfilled... The only death to fear is the death of settling for something less  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Genuine tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences within a bond of civility and respect  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes) Politics is chiefly a function of culture, at the heart of culture is morality, and at the heart of morality is religion  (Richard John Neuhaus Quotes)
