ON RELIGION, ON CHRISTIANITY: THREE THOUGHTS BY THREE THINKERS

"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind."
- Thomas Paine

"The idea of God is the sole wrong for which I cannot forgive mankind."
- Marquis de Sade

"If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities."
- Voltaire
