"I don't know of many evangelicals who want to deny gay couples their legal rights. However, most of us don't want to call it marriage, because we think that word has religious connotations, and we're not ready to see it used in ways that offend us."
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Tony Campolo on Mignon McLaughlin
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."Tony Campolo on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Tony Campolo on Friedrich Nietzsche
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being."Tony Campolo on Oscar Wilde
"Don't marry the person you think you can live with marry only the individual you think you can't live without."Tony Campolo on James C. Dobson
"I propose that the government should get out of the business of marrying people and, instead, only give legal status to civil unions."

"Sadly, we do a much better job of making people feel guilty than we do of delivering them from the guilt we create. We need to confess this and change our ways."
"The first reason for the preponderant influence of those Evangelicals who define themselves as advocates of Religious Right theological and political ideologies is that they have both the financial means and technological know-how to make widespread use of modern electronic forms of communication."
"While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can't figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn't prove there's a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature."
