We owe a huge debt to Galileo for emancipating us all from the stupid belief in an Earth-centered or man-centered (let alone God-centered) system. He quite literally taught us our place and allowed us to go on to make extraordinary advances in knowledge.

I wholeheartedly agree, and I suspect that the church was upset with Galileo less for denying that Earth was the center of the universe than that man ... or certain men ... did not occupy that location.

To really win over the capital's beautiful people, and convince them of his capacity for responsible interventionism, the new president needed to get rid of the one tiny part of his entire barking-mad worldview that made a small bit of sense, i.e. , his reluctance to start schoolyard brawls abroad.

Yes Loren.  You're right.  I don't know how I got Stephen King tacked on that quote.

Idaho, I'm pretty sure you quote came not from Stephen King but Stephen FRY.  In fact:

If God created us in his own image, we have more than reciprocated.

If it turns out that there is a God...the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever.
― Woody Allen

Never mind an an absentee father and landlord, indifferent to suffering, fairness or justice, unresponsive to any form of communication ... and I could go on and on.

Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
