George Santayana (Quote)
“Christianity persecuted, tortured, and burned. Like a hound it tracked the very scent of heresy. It kindled wars, and nursed furious hatreds and ambitions. It sanctified, quite like Mohammedanism, extermination and tyranny . . . ”
—-George Santayana, philosopher (1863-1952), Little Essays, No. 107, "Christian Morality"
