O! receive the fugitive, and prepare intime an asylum for mankind." ~ Thomas Paine

Religion: Systême de doctrine et de conduite inventé par Dieu lui-même pour le bien de ses prêtres et le salut de nos âmes. Il y a plusieurs religions sur la terre, mais la seule véritable est toujours celle de nos pères, qui étaient trop sensés pour se laisser tromper ; toutes les autres religions sont des superstitions ridicules qu'il faudrait abolir si l'on était assez fort. La vraie religion est celle que nous croyons vraie, à laquelle nous sommes accoutumés, ou contre laquelle il serait dangereux de disputer. La religion du prince porte toujours des caractères indubitables de vérité."
