“I conceive of God, in fact, as a means of liberation and not a means to control others.” – Baldwin, James. Nobody Knows My Name: More Notes of a Native Son. 1961.

“If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him.” – Baldwin, James. The Fire Next Time. 1963.
