Here are some of the week’s most notable quotes culled from news reports from across Texas, and beyond.
Republican presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, denouncing the attacks on his faith by Bryan Fischer of the American Family Association.
One of the speakers who will follow me today has crossed that line, I think. Poisonous language doesn’t advance our cause. It’s never softened a single heart nor changed a single mind. We should remember that decency and civility are values too.
John Anderson, the Maurice Ewing professor of oceanography at Rice University and author of a long-awaited report on Galveston Bay that is being delayed by accusations that Texas’ environmental agency deleted references from a scientific article to climate change.
I don’t think there is any question but that their motive is to tone this thing down as it relates to global (climate) change. It’s not about the science. It’s all politics.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, saying the American Revolution took place two centuries before it actually did.
The reason that we fought the Revolution in the 16th century was to get away from that kind of onerous crown, if you will.
Presidential contender Gov. Rick Perry, who was a yell leader at Texas A&M, on what his yell would be for his campaign.
Rick Perry. Liberty. Rick Perry. Freedom. Freedom is working. Liberty is working. We’ve got to get America working again.
Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, in a speech to an evangelical Christian audience while running for Congress in 2006.
They’re teaching children that there is separation of church and state, and I am here to tell you that’s a myth — that’s not true. The only reason we’ve been a great nation — guess why? Because at our founding we established everything we did on the lordship of Christ.
