Notable and Quotable (II)

I was afraid of a united Church; it makes a mighty power, the mightiest conceivable, and then when it by and by gets into selfish hands, as it is always bound to do, it means death to human liberty and paralysis to human thought.

–Mark Twain, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, Chapter X

    Mark Twain (aka, Samuel Clemens) had a lot of good, insightful things to say about a wide range of subjects, and I quote him myself on many topics. However, he was very much resentful and antagonistic towards theological and religious matters for most of his life.

    I gotta agree with Library Jim–I’m about as interested in Mark Twain’s thoughts on religion as I am those of Benjamin Franklin!
