I know of no one who has done more for humanity than Jesus. In fact, there is nothing wrong with Christianity … The trouble is with you Christians. You do not begin to live up to your own teachings.

The same article shows "I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ" as disputed. It also has the Western civilization quote as disputed.
"Science is more than a body of knowledge; it is a way of thinking. I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers arc in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.

The classic American near-blasphemous oath is, CMIIW, "Jesus H. Christ!". The British equivalent is "Jesus wept!" (Notable as the shortest verse in the KJV, at two words).
Reality is a hallucination caused by alcohol deprivation.

Only Satan can rebuke sin. The righteous don't know enough.

God is not dead. He was merely voted out of office.

You can do anything with anybody if you just save them the trouble of thinking.

Sometimes you don't even need words. (A salute to the late, great Alan Rickman.)

Treytor Gowdy looked crushed as he walked crawled oozed out of the Capital Building for the last time. He has the look of a man who sold his soul for what he now sees was next to nothing. He's just a willingly used whore who didn't even end up with a decent payday.

Quote

A photo of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) is going viral for showing the former official exiting a Congressional building in a disheveled suit and tie pulled apart.

Gowdy’s down-cast eyes and slumped shoulders was the perfect contrast to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who appeared strong and victorious as she took hold of the House gavel once again.

“Poor Trey,” tweeted Daily Beast writer Cliff Schecter. “Much like Darrell Issa [and] Jason Chaffetz, seems The Gods have been cruel to the witless demagogues who led the charge on bogus investigations that wasted billions–while providing conspiracy theories to create Breitbart boners for the ages.”

“This photo of sad Trey Gowdy walking away from Congress for the last time makes me almost as happy as seeing Nancy Pelosi return as Speaker of the House. Almost,” wrote Washington Post op-ed writer and Blue Wave Crowdsource co-creator Holly Figueroa O’Reilly. She then cited Gowdy’s own words, “I will not be on the ballot ever again”


Here's the pic. Click the link for lots of other great tweets. I love "why does Trey Gowdy look like the lead protagonist of The Hangover 6" and "Trey Gowdy looks like he got kicked off The Bachelorette first."
