quotes with the word "pagans"
Mythology was therefore designed to help us cope with the problematic human predicament. It helped people to find their place in the world and their true orientation.
[9/11] attacks were caused by God's wrath at] pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians, . . . the ACLU (and) People for the American Way.
strong debate . . . they were shouting at each other. Yes, the apostles, because they were seeking the will of God about the pagans, whether they could enter the Church or not. It was something new. Always when one seeks God's will in a synodal assembly there will be different points of view and debates. That isn't something bad as long as it is done with humility and with an attitude of service.
Early on, Christians would dress up in costumes as the devil, ghosts, goblins and witches precisely to make the point that those things were defeated and overthrown by the resurrected Jesus Christ . . . The costumes poke fun at the fact that the devil and other evils were publicly humiliated by Christ at His resurrection. That's what the Scriptures say, that He publicly humiliated the devil when He triumphed over power and principality and put them under his feet. Over time you get some pagans who want to go this is our day, high holy day of Satanic church, that this is all about death, but Christians have always known since the first century that death was defeated, that the grave was overwhelmed, that ghosts, goblins, devils are foolish has-beens who used to be in power but not anymore. That's the perspective Christians should have.
It hurts my vanity to see these pagans refuse to eat of food that has been cooked for us; or to eat from a dish we have eaten from; or to drink from a goatskin which we have polluted with our Christian lips, except by filtering the water through a rag which they put over the mouth of it or through a sponge! . . . These degraded Turks and Arabs. . . . When Russia is ready to war with them again, I hope England and France will not find it good breeding or good judgment to interfere. . . .
