Transwiki of "either with us or against us" quotes[edit]

I have completed a transwiki started by ^demon from a Wikipedia article called "You're either with us, or against us" that contained a number of quotes from Jesus, George W. Bush, Anakin Skywalker, and Indiana governor Mitch Daniels. All but the last I've copied here and also added to their respective articles. The WP editors involved in the preserved quotes are as follows:

  • (cur) (last) 15:54, 5 July 2005 (UTC) JJLatWiki (I created the "opinions" section to separate the facts from the opinion. And the entire original paragraph was pure opinion and not deserving of "factual" status. I think this promotes neutrality.)

Their edits are listed here to provide proper credit for a transwikied article. Now that all this is in place, Wikiquote editors may add, delete, or modify the new material just as they would any other article content. ~ Jeff Q (talk) 05:02, 23 May 2006 (UTC)
