They’re killing children! How many children were at Waco? They’re killing children! Bill Hicks
The Branch Davidians did not start the fire: they were murdered. Bill Hicks
So the major news said that the Branch Davidians started the fire ... Yet I’ve seen with my own eyes the Bradley tanks shooting fire into the compound. Isn’t it odd that no major news source picked that up? You’d think that’s newsworthy. That basically means that the government, from the FBI, the ATF, up to Janet Reno, including Clinton, are liars and murderers. Ha ha ha ha ha. Bill Hicks, Rant in E Minor
I’m like Koresh, only without the guns and pussy. Bill Hicks

I’m in trouble because I teach people the Seven Seals; for people are out to get me because they say, He says he’s Christ. David Koresh
We’re not trying to be bad guys. The thing is this. I know it sounds crazy to you but you’re gonna find out sooner or later. There are Seven Seals. The question of theology has overstepped. I’m gonna open that book; now that’s what I’ve done. Now there are some things in that Bible that have been held as mysteries about Christ ... Theology is life or death. David Koresh, conversation with FBI negotiator
