What greater crutch is there than government? Hail! the new defacto God!

    Welfare is a crutch from which people should be divested.
     -- Joe, Rochester, MI     
  •  
    The greatest crutch ever has been religion. Until human beings can learn to rely on their own minds and reason the greater ethics of the simple Golden Rule will forever be ignored.
     -- Dick, Fort Worth     
  •  
    Religion may be a crutch, but the Bible indicates, in James, I believe, that the "only religion acceptable to God" is to look after the widows and orphans. Therefore, who defined religion in the way it is here being used. Government there always will be, not as a crutch but as an agent of God to protect the weak and punish wrongdoers.
     -- David L. Rosenthal , Hollywood
