What Comes Around, Comes Around!

“Christianity persecuted, tortured, and burned. Like a hound it tracked the very scent of heresy. It kindled wars, and nursed furious hatreds and ambitions. It sanctified, quite like Mohammedanism, extermination and tyranny . . . ”

—-George Santayana, philosopher (1863-1952), Little Essays, No. 107, “Christian Morality”


9/11

“The men who committed the atrocities of September 11 were certainly not ‘cowards,’ as they were repeatedly described in the Western media, nor were they lunatics in any ordinary sense. They were men of faith—perfect faith, as it turns out—and this, it must finally be acknowledged, is a terrible thing to be.”

Sam Harris, The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason
