Seth (George Clooney): "A Faithless preacher doesn't mean shit to us!......A servant of God can bless the tap water and make it a weapon.  Jacob, I know why you lost your faith.

Cause, I know that whatever is out there, trying to get in, is pure evil, straight from hell and if there is a hell and those sons of bitches are from it, then there has got to be a heaven, Jacob. There has got to be! So which are you - a faithless preacher or are you a mean mother fucking servant of God?"
