Quote of the day 15th December 2015

“There can be no religious test for those who serve in public office; we do not tolerate religious discrimination in the workplace, or in the neighbourhood.

“The slogan on the Statue of Liberty — ‘give us your poor, your tired, and your huddled masses yearning to breathe free’ — contemplates no religious test for those who reach our shores. …

"My hope and prayer today is that the isolated voices calling for division are overwhelmed by the chorus of voices like those in this room today calling for acceptance, for tolerance and inclusion.”
