Easter Sunday, 2010. On atheism:
"It's about our determination as human beings to have our own way, to make our own rules, to live our own lives, unfettered by the rule of God and the right of God to rule over us."
"What we're really seeing, once more [is] an example of the contest between human beings and God over who rules the world."
"Last century we tried godlessness on a grand scale and the effects were devastating: Nazism, Stalinism, Pol Pot-ery, mass murder, abortion and broken relationships - all promoted by state-imposed atheism."
"[It's] the illusion that we can build a better life without God."
