Christianity has such a contemptible opinion of human nature that it does not believe a man can tell the truth unless frightened by a belief in God. No lower opinion of the human race has ever been expressed.


— Robert Green Ingersoll, discussing the practice of not allowing atheists to give testimony in court: “In most of the States of this Union I could not give testimony. Should a man be murdered before my eyes I could not tell a jury who did it.” — quoted from the book Ingersoll the Magnificent, edited by Joseph Lewis, which does not cite references
