„Anyone who thinks sitting in church can make you a Christian must also think that sitting in a garage can make you a car.“
— Garrison Keillor American radio host and writer 1942
Though Keillor has been quoted on the internet and in print as having made this or a similar remark, such expressions have been made by others, and may have originated with Billy Sunday, who is quoted as having said "Going to church on Sunday does not make you a Christian any more than going into a garage makes you an automobile!" in Press, Radio, Television, Periodicals, Public Relations, and Advertising, As Seen through Institutes and Special Occasions of the Henry W. Grady School of Journalism (1967) edited by John Eldridge Drewry.
Variante: Going to church no more makes you a Christian than standing in a garage makes you a car.
