Dave's a happy, happy guy this evening. Partly because I have completely recovered now from Finals Syndrome. :o) Thought I'd share some of the happiness with you by giving you the QOTM winners for April. (Be not in any way deceived by the fact that it is my duty to share the winners with you anyway as Quotemeister :o)
And so, we offer hearty congratulations to the Theist Quote of the Month winner for April 1999 with fourteen votes . . .

Radelster!

"Because if we don't, then WHO WILL??? Something in this world has to be correct, why not the Bible?"
Written by radelster

Nominated by McBryan, seconded by raven1

Second place is claimed by Eric's number 5, and third place by Geoff's number 1, with 9 and 7 votes respectively. It should be noted that Geoff's quote was an unusual theist quote in that it was nominated for its insight and intelligence rather than its ridiculity.

Congrats to all nominees. May the IPU have mercy on your souls! Following is the nomination and voting record for April.

"Faith seems a bit like dandruff and halitosis - some have it and some don't. My difficulty, if you can call it that, is that the nicest people seem not to have it............. Just look at the mad mullahs, the American baptists and the Irish Catholics. They are scarcely housetrained. Reason, or even compassion, just don't seem to enter into their understanding. I wonder what God Himself thinks about our approaches to religion and faith."

"Of course it would be the Christian God! The God of Christianity is the only God there is; if Christianity were completely false, and Islam were the Holy truth, the God would still be the God of Christianity; it would just be that Christianity would be a giant mistake."
