J. C. Watts
I have learned to interface - what I think would be the contemporary term - with various different lexicons, and people speak very different languages. I've learned to speak in a lot of tongues, and I can live with the bellicose language of some fervent, fire-breathing Christians, sure.
When I speak at my local church, which I try to do 35 to 40 times a year, I try in every lesson to take the Old Testament text or New Testament text and apply them to what is happening to me or how that applies to the audience that I'm teaching in a modern, fast-changing, technological world. I use headlines, interfaith and that sort of thing.
Religion fails if it cannot speak to men as they are.
The thing is when you're... well-enough known, you get asked to speak places, and they don't really think about whether or not you're qualified.

S. I. Hayakawa

There's a lot of Dave mania when I speak.
I would never speak about specifics in my own relationships because I think it's tacky.
I'm a person that just likes to speak the truth, and I don't understand why in America it's such a big deal that we won't read the Koran and we won't look at history.
I never speak ill of dead people or live judges.
Let's stand up. Let's speak with pride about our morals and our values and redouble our effort to elect more conservative Republicans.
