"I listen to the feminists and all these radical gals -- most of them are failures... They married some Caspar Milquetoast who asked permission to to to the bathroom. These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need... a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead the home."
  The Rev. Jerry Falwell, founder of Moral Majority and a Promise Keepers speaker


"Don't misunderstand what I'm saying here. I'm not suggesting that you ask for your role back. I'm urging you to take it back. Unfortunately, there can be no compromise. Treat the lady gently and lovingly. But lead."
  The Rev. Tony Evans, coeditor of Seven Promises of a Promise Keeper, the group's manifesto


The 1985 Civil Rights Act is "one of the most frightening pieces of legislation that has been brought up."
