On the values we instill in our youth:
"The culture has refused to impose (yes, impose) a set of standards rooted in immutable values on young people, who will not on their own grow up to do things that promote the general welfare...Listened to the music of their lives lately? Watched MTV? Criminals aren't born, they're made, and America is manufacturing them in record numbers."

On sexual liberation:
"The figures don't lie. They show that despite the most massive sex education campaign in history, diseases continue to multiply. Those who suggest such radical notions as 'chastity' before marriage and faithfulness are told they are being puritanical. The Puritans may have had problems but AIDS wasn't one of them."

On religion:
"Science [intends to] prove once and for all God isn't dead; He never existed....It doesn't even consider that a God who could be explained would not be a God. Can a refrigerator explain how it was made?...The consequences-political, social and personal-to a society that declares God dead or irrelevant are profound...Appeals to standards fall flat if there is no standard-giver. Higher things such as love and faith and virtue have nothing to hold them up and they quietly crash."
