"Republican values - strong families, faith, personal responsibility and freedom, among others - are not unique to specific subsets of the electorate. They are universal values, and it is Republicans' job to remind Americans of that fact."
"Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged."Gary Bauer on Ronald Reagan
"For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."Gary Bauer on Nelson Mandela
"If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom."Gary Bauer on Dwight D. Eisenhower
"I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."Gary Bauer on Robert A. Heinlein
"Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err."Gary Bauer on Mahatma Gandhi
"Catholics and evangelicals need to remain allied, and in solidarity, against the increasingly aggressive secularism of our age."
"I have come to the conclusion that while a candidate's faith matters, what's most important is how he or she applies that faith."
"The question Americans should ask is not whether a candidate is affiliated with a particular faith but rather whether that candidate's faith makes it more likely he or she will support policies that align with their values."
"It's important to ask candidates about their beliefs, in part because politicians frequently exploit religious faith - often with the idea that voters will be more likely to unthinkingly accept certain political positions so long as they arise from religious belief."
"For the record, I believe elected officials should talk about faith. Our founders believed the moral principles of faith were indispensable to our nation's survival. The Declaration of Independence mentions God four times."
