Henry Mencken

Henry Mencken –  We must respect the other fellow’s religion, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children are smart.” “Puritanism – the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy.” “Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration – courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and, above all, love of the truth.”
