Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “Any doctrine that will not bear investigation is not a fit tenant for the mind of an honest man.

The liberty of man is not safe in the hands of any church. Wherever the Bible and sword are in partnership, man is a slave. 1879.”
Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “The priests of one religion never credit the miracles of another religion. Is this because priests instinctively know priests?”

Robert G. Ingersoll Quote: “It seems to me impossible for a civilized man to love or worship, or respect the God of the Old Testament. A really civilized man, a really civilized woman, must hold such a God in abhorrence and contempt.”
