Terry’s Chop Shop

A modern day Jack Ketch:

Ever since I was a boy I have had a burning desire to chop. Some call it an obsessive compulsion, others have told me i’m clinically insane. But for me it’s simply a release. When I have my axe in my hand and i’m ready to slice open an inanimate object to see what’s inside, it’s like I go somewhere else – I call it – the choppy place.

Daily Dose of Ingersoll


Nature never prompted a loving mother to throw her child into the Ganges. Nature never prompted men to exterminate each other for a difference of opinion concerning the baptism of infants. These crimes have been produced by religions filled with all that is illogical, cruel and hideous. These religions were produced for the most part by ignorance, tyranny and hypocrisy. Under the impression that the infinite ruler and creator of the universe had commanded the destruction of heretics and infidels, the church perpetrated all these crimes.

Robert Green Ingersoll – “Heretics and Hericies”(1874)
