Three quotes from Australian comedian, social commentator and master interviewer, Andrew Denton:
(selected from: http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/a/andrew_denton.html )
"A poll earlier this year showed that 42 per cent of Americans believe we're in the End Times."
"Absolute faith can blind you to the consequences of the actions you allow. It can tell you it's okay to drop bombs on another country, or that it's okay to hate a group of people such as homosexuals."
"I have deep respect for people's individual faith, but when faith gets connected to the machinery of state, or the machinery of hate, I find it very confronting."
