The Catholic and the Communist are alike in assuming that an opponent cannot be both honest and intelligent.

In the United States there's a Puritan ethic and a mythology of success. He who is successful is good. In Latin countries, in Catholic countries, a successful person is a sinner.

Umberto Eco

I thank God I was raised Catholic, so sex will always be dirty.

John Waters

I like the catholicity in time: our tradition is one of 2,000 years.

Hans Kung

I'm really happy that I was raised Catholic because it's given me years of material.

Kate Clinton

Profound joy of the heart is like a magnet that indicates the path of life.

Mother Teresa

Unfortunately, when someone asks me for a favor, I can't say no. Because of my upbringing - my Catholic guilt - if I don't do it, it plagues me.

Bradley Cooper

I don't think it's any coincidence that I lost my religious faith and 'manned up' in the same year. I was described somewhere as a lapsed Catholic, which is funny because I'm not going back! I want to achieve things rather than live life in an animalistic way.

Jimmy Carr

There's Catholic guilt about things, then there's the guilt of being the youngest of 10, so when nice things happen to you, you're not really allowed to enjoy them.

Jack White

They're after one world religion and one world government. That's why they've attacked the Catholic Church so strongly, to ultimately take control over it by their doctrine.

Hutton Gibson

I suffer from Irish-Catholic guilt. Guilt is a good reality check. It keeps that 'do what makes you happy' thing in check.

Edward Burns

My mom always said that if the Protestants catch a Catholic in their church, they feed them to the Jews.

Kate O'Brien

The Roman Catholics must know as well as we do that "Popery" when encouraged by government has always been dangerous to the liberties of the people.

Lord George Gordon

I've also committed my time and resources to many local organizations like Christmas in April, Catholic Community Services, and Hudson County Meals on Wheels.

Vincent Frank

I grew up in a big Irish, Catholic family. My dad was a pretty rough guy. So one of my brothers left home when he was 15 and found his way to the gym. It gave me the opportunity to go and spend some time with him and work out in the gym.

Gerry Cooney

I am saying voluntarily that I have sung for almost every religious group in the country, from Jewish and Catholic, and Presbyterian and Holy Rollers and Revival Churches.

Pete Seeger

I went to a Catholic high school and it seemed like every time I drew something for a class project, it either got thrown away by the teacher or something.

Mike Judge

Kinsey thought that Freud in his own way was as dangerous as the Catholic Church.

Bill Condon

I'm pretty catholic about what constitutes science fiction.

Frederik Pohl

The Roman Catholics teach that unless you're a Roman Catholic you do not go to heaven.

Neale Donald Walsch

Beyond the Catholic exclusionary paradigm is a larger one which is the Christian one. Christians claim that if you don't believe in Christ, you can't get to heaven. Well that eliminates two thirds of the world's population!

Neale Donald Walsch

I come from a long line of staunch Irish Catholics.

Robert Vaughn

In my work, I explore my own Catholic obsessions.

Andres Serrano

As a former Catholic, and as someone who even today is not opposed to being called a Christian, I felt I had every right to use the symbols of the Church and resented being told not to.

Andres Serrano

I am drawn to Christ but I have real problems with the Catholic Church.

Andres Serrano

As for the depiction of the Catholic church, it's not meant to be a prediction.

Dan Simmons

The Puritan has passed; the Catholic remains.

William H. O'Connell

I grew up a Catholic and I don't want to talk badly about the Catholic Church but there's a lot of routine stuff going on. You say the same prayers, you sit, you kneel, whatever.

Bernhard Langer

It is sufficient to say, what everybody knows to be true, that the Irish population is Catholic, and that the Protestants, whether of the Episcopalian or Presbyterian Church, or of both united, are a small minority of the Irish people.

John Bright

As you know, I am neither Roman Catholic, Protestant Episcopalian, nor Presbyterian, nor am I an Irishman.

John Bright

Rome should sometimes intervene and say this or that is not in conformity with the Catholic faith. Theologians should understand that. Some theologians go too far, for example, reducing the Catholic faith to a universal philosophy.

Godfried Danneels

There is a very well-defined procedure that allows the Vatican to raise issues with a particular theologian about something that does not appear in conformity with the Catholic faith. It is not always easy to make this determination.

Godfried Danneels

They divided the city into three electoral wards, and in one ward there was 70 percent of the people, the Catholic population, and they elected eight representatives to the city council.

John Hume

I know that many writers have had to write under censorship and yet produced good novels; for instance, Cervantes wrote Don Quixote under Catholic censorship.

Guillermo Cabrera Infante

I was raised by the Christian Brothers, who believe in that, fortunately. They were, to me, the most rebellious arm of the Catholic Church - and one of the most liberal and forward thinking.

Paul Kantner

I was raised Catholic and I'm Presbyterian now, but I've always been a Christian, regardless of denomination. I believe that Jesus is the way.

Patricia Heaton

We do hereby command the Leaders of the Hebrew, Catholic and Protestant Churches to sanctify and have us crowned Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico.

I'm a Catholic, but I used to love going to Vacation Bible School with my fundamentalist friends.

Paul Begala

I try hard to be a good Catholic.

Paul Begala

I have tried to kill sectarianism, whether in Catholics or Protestants.

James Larkin

Catholic liturgical music, it would seem, is everywhere but in the Catholic Church itself.

Richard Morris

When the truth is that there would be no great Western music, and certainly no decent choral repertoire, without the Catholic faith.

Richard Morris

Thus the slogan should be reversed: Catholics taught the world what music is supposed to sound like, and, more importantly, what it is supposed to mean.

Richard Morris

Even Catholic parishes today are not wanting for talent. But no serious singer or organist will get anywhere near the typical music program, at least if he wants to retain his self-respect.

Richard Morris

All you hear Catholics turning out these days are pop versions of the old Protestant anthems.

Richard Morris

You can count on one hand the number of Novus Ordo churches in this country that feature a fully Catholic music program of any quality, consistent with the Roman rite tradition.

Richard Morris

The Roman Catholic church... carries the immense power of very directly affecting women's lives everywhere by its stand against birth control and abortion.

Robin Morgan

This is a crisis, but there is an opportunity to help revitalize and renew the Catholic community.

William P. Leahy

We've always had issues up for discussion at Catholic universities.

William P. Leahy

By no means do I anticipate screening those who come on to campus... And I have no difficulty if a bishop across the country or some local pastor may say that's not Catholic teaching - that's fine.

William P. Leahy

What we're about is a manifestation of the Catholic roots of Boston College.

William P. Leahy

BC is not going to replace the hierarchy, and BC is not going to lead some major reform in the Catholic Church - that's got to come out of the whole Catholic community.

William P. Leahy

I would say that, intellectually, Catholicism had no more impact on me than did social theory.

Paul Farmer

As a proud Catholic, I know the impact that faith-based education can have in our society and have witnessed it first hand in my district.

Joe Baca

Catholic schools in our Nation's education have been paramount in teaching the values that we as parents seek to instill in our children.

Joe Baca

Catholic school graduates exhibit a wide variety of qualities that will not only help them in their careers but also in their family and community lives.

Joe Baca

When I went to high school, an all-boys' school, a Catholic school, I tried out for football, and I didn't make it. It was the first time, athletically, that I was knocked down.

Mike Krzyzewski

It is now quite lawful for a Catholic woman to avoid pregnancy by a resort to mathematics, though she is still forbidden to resort to physics and chemistry.

H. L. Mencken

You know, my children go to a local, local catholic school just down the road.

John Deacon

I was raised a Catholic and when you're raised a Catholic they don't teach you to think for yourself. You're taught not to think too deeply about things.

Abel Ferrara

I'm pretty much a good Catholic girl at heart and I believe in family. I also have a basic belief that God takes care of me. I believe in prayer, even though I'm not that religious. I just have that foundation from my family. I mean when you think that you're just a human being and one of God's creatures, you can't take anything that seriously.

Catherine O'Hara

I was born in ancient times, at the end of the world, in a patriarchal Catholic and conservative family. No wonder that by age five I was a raging feminist - although the term had not reached Chile yet, so nobody knew what the heck was wrong with me.

Isabel Allende

I grew up in a Hindu household but went to a Roman Catholic school. I grew up with a mother who said, 'I'll arrange a marriage for you at 18,' but she also said that we could achieve anything we put our minds to an encourage us to dream of becoming prime minister or president.

Indra Nooyi

At first, I didn't hang out with celebrity kids. That wasn't the way I was brought up. I went to a run-of-the-mill Catholic primary school when we first moved to L.A. But then I went to a high school where there were lots of 'industry' children. Those weren't my best friends and I've never set out to make myself a part of that scene.

Lily Collins

We're not opposed to Catholics having pride in their church, but that doesn't mean that every church that doesn't join them isn't a church.

Pope Shenouda III

I have four children which is not bad considering I'm not a Catholic.

Peter Ustinov

I'm what you call a deathbed Catholic.

Broderick Crawford

I don't believe in organized religion - I dealt with them hand in hand, and a whole bunch of Catholic priests tried to molest me. Telling me I was gay and I should go home with them and stuff.

Jonathan Davis

I'm Catholic, he's Jewish, and it was just easier to elope.

Marg Helgenberger

The Catholic Church has never really come to terms with women. What I object to is being treated either as Madonnas or Mary Magdalenes.

Shirley Williams

In the nineteenth century, many Anglican theologians, both evangelical and catholic, embraced positively the proposal of evolution.

Arthur Peacocke

Catholicism is a wide tent in terms of political and legal positions. We could have nine Catholics on the Supreme Court and a great deal of diversity toward the law.

Cass Sunstein

It's great to be recognized when I'm looking for a table at a crowded restaurant, but I still don't put it to best use. I'm such a lump. I won't cut the line. It's my Catholic guilt. I gotta get used to it.

Christopher Meloni

I loved Catholic school. I didn't like being beeped at by old pervs at the gas station because I was wearing a plaid skirt, though. It's like, do you think I'm going to stop and give you my phone number?

Kristen Bell

But I remember the moment when my father died. I wasn't a very committed Catholic beforehand, but when that happened it suddenly all felt so obvious: I now believe religion is our attempt to find an explanation, for us to feel more protected.

Javier Bardem

I'm a Catholic by background. I was raised in Goa, a part of India that was visited by Portuguese missionaries a few hundred years ago, which explains my last name.

Dinesh D'Souza

I think there's nothing better in the world than a spirited discussion about the Bible and Jesus and God and the Catholic faith, or the Jewish faith, or the Muslim faith - any religion.

Elizabeth Vargas

Catholicism played such a huge part in my life, I would not have survived without my faith.

Samantha Morton

Should the Catholic Church find itself discriminated against by the Obama administration on key delivery of services because of the bias and the bigotry of the administration?

Newt Gingrich

My family is very traditional, Catholic.

Paz Vega

If there is anyone who's living the work of the New Testament, it's the nuns of the Catholic church and not the Catholic hierarchy.

Anna Quindlen

I got in trouble in Catholic school for rolling the waist of my skirt down.

Nicky Hilton

I grew up in a very old-fashioned Roman Catholic, Italian-Irish family in Philly.

Bradley Cooper

We're a Muslim family, but we're also very cultured and we have a mixture of different religions. For example, my brother-in-law is Catholic, and my sister converted and my nephews are baptized. I have an uncle who just graduated and currently he's a priest.

Rima Fakih

I came up from growing up with a lot of Catholic guilt, a lot of punk rock, hipster guilt in the later years where I think people have thrown a lot of things on me. Where I always felt like I'm not supposed to tell the horn section what to play or I don't want to come off egotistical.

Jack White

I was reared a Catholic but I think every day we ask ourselves, not consciously, what are we doing on this planet? What's it all about?

Liam Neeson

The great achievement of the Catholic Church lay in harmonizing, civilizing the deepest impulses of ordinary, ignorant people.

Kenneth Clark

I hope that by going to visit the pope I have enabled everybody to see that the words Catholic and Protestant, as ordinarily used, are completely out of date. They are almost always used now purely for propaganda purposes. That is why so much trouble is caused by them.

Geoffrey Fisher

It is now for the Catholic Church to bend herself to her work with calmness and generosity. It is for you to observe her with renewed and friendly attention.

You should have seen me in my Catholic school girl skirt with my knees knocking together.

Catholic schools prepare every student to meet the challenges of their future by developing their mind, yes, but also their body and their soul and spirit.

David Vitter

When you don't have kids and you're in a Catholic family - one of my sisters had 10 children in 11 years - she's part rabbit - you feel kind of guilty about that. So, I want to do things for other people's children.

Marge Schott

My husband is a fall-away Catholic, but with a vengeance. He's actually more of a feminist than I am.

My father was Catholic, my mother was Protestant, and because of that I got Christened in both churches, so I've got all these names... but my Dad always called me Mick.

I became a Catholic against my will.

So nonetheless given the importance that was placed on sport in Australia, I wanted to be part of that scene, particularly since I had felt very strongly in my early schooling being marginalised even in the Catholic school.

Thomas Keneally

I don't need a psychiatrist. I'm Catholic.

Dorothy Kilgallen
