And if you now find yourself sitting atop a high horse saying “hey wait a minute, my religion’s different, we’re peaceful. We don’t behave like that” – you’ve just witnessed a snapshot of Christianity from as late as around 400 years ago, so you don’t get out of it as easily as that.

— Colonel Robert Green Ingersoll, The Limitations of Toleration (1888)
