“Difference is where politics live; but it is where religion transcends. ”
“The single greatest risk of the twenty-first century is… not when politics is religionized but when religion is politicized. ”
“A true global politics will begin, not with the clash of national interest, but with a greater over-arching truth; that we are one family under the parenthood of God, guardians of His world for the sake of generations not yet born. ”
“Religions creates communities. Politics mediates between communities. Religion lives in justice and compassion, righteousness and mercy, loyalty and loving kindness. Politics requires compromise, tolerance, a willingness of live and let live ”
“Politicians have power, but religion has something greater than power. It has influence. Politics moves the pieces, but religion changes lives. ”
