On Religion

“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!
