Thought for the Day

“Man is the religious animal.
He is the only religious animal.
He is the only animal that has the ‘True Religion’
several of them.
He is the only animal
that loves his neighbor as himself
and cuts his throat, if his theology isn’t straight.
He has made a graveyard of the globe
in trying his honest best to smooth his brother’s path
to happiness and heaven.”

~ Mark Twain

*Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Born November 30, 1835 Florida, Missouri
Died April 21, 1910 (aged 74) Redding, Connecticut
