Those who Believe Absurdities Commit Atrocities

“Once your faith… persuades you to believe what your intelligence declares to be absurd, beware lest you likewise sacrifice your reason in the conduct of your life… Certainly any one who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices… Once a single faculty of your soul has been tyrannized, all the other faculties will submit to the same fate.” -Voltaire
