“We need to be honest with ourselves and each other as Americans. Religion at its very essence requires theological arrogance. As believers of a particular religion, [whether we are Catholics, Muslims, Jews, etc.] we have to declare “This is what I believe, and I believe that this IS THE WAY”. But we have to understand that this nation is united in its [religious] diversity. And therefore, even with our [individual religious and] ideological arrogance, we have to be respectful of [our differing religious views. As Americans], we have to be respectful of our differences.”
Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver, on NBC Meet The Press roundtable April 9, 2012
To that I say AMEN!
