James Russell Lowell

The worst kind of religion is no religion at all; and these men living in ease and luxury, indulging them selves in the amusement of going without religion, may be thankful that they live in lands where the Gospel they neglect has tamed the beastliness and ferocity of the men who, but for Christianity, might long ago have eaten their carcasses like the South Sea Islanders, or cut off their heads and tanned their hides like the monsters of the French Revolution.—James Russell Lowell.
