Religious Animals

There is no wild beast so ferocious as Christians who differ concerning their faith.

— William E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Nationalism in Europe, 1871

Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion – several of them. He is the only animal that loves his neighbor as himself and cuts his throat is his theology isn’t straight.

— Mark Twain, The Damned Human Race
