“To compel man to desert the standard of reason, the church does not entirely rely on the threat of eternal pain to be endured in another world, but holds out the reward of eternal joy. To those who believe, it promises the endless ecstasies of heaven. If it cannot frighten, it will bribe.”

–Robert Ingersoll, quoted in The Heretic’s Handbook of Quotations
