Oh lovely.

A few gratuitous missionary quotes

The missionaries go forth to Christianize the savages - as if the savages weren't dangerous enough already. [ Edward Abbey ]

We send missionaries to China so the Chinese can get to heaven, but we won't let them into our country. [ Pearl S. Buck ]

If a politician found he had cannibals among his constituents, he would promise them missionaries for dinner. [ H. L. Mencken ]

When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said "Let us pray." We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land. [ Desmond Tutu ]

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. - Steven Weinberg, 1999

[letheomaniac] That tribe sound like my kind of people. I particularly like the way they bury their dead in a sitting position to save on digging. Practical and efficient - excellent. I really like the Desmond Tutu quote Hermit btw - the Arch has always been the clergyman I have the most time for, mostly because of his excellent sense of humour.
