Marquis de Sade

“Have no doubt on one point: at its very birth, this unworthy religion [Christianity] would have been destroyed without shift, if only there had been employed against it no other weapon that the contempt it deserves–but it was persecuted, and so it grew. If today, the effort were made to cover it with ridicule, it would soon fall.”

–Marquis de Sade, Philosophie dans le Boudoir
