"Some president wishes to be re-elected, and thereupon speaks about the
Bible as "the corner-stone of American Liberty." This sentence is a
mouth large enough to swallow any church, and from that time forward
the religious people will be citing that remark of the politician to
substantiate the inspiration of the Scriptures."
[Robert G. Ingersoll, "Morality and Immorality" interview,
printed in The News, Detroit, Michigan, January 6, 1884]
