Bible, n. A work high on the tolerant people's list of books to be
burned.

We live in a pluralistic, multicultural society where young people
raised according to the tenets of Hinduisn, Islam, or the humanist
philosophy of Bertrand Russel must feel as welcome as young people
raised on the Bible. Our solution to this challenge is ingenious.
Knowing that the vast majority of young people are profoundly
ignorant of the Bhagavad Gita, or of the Koran, or for that matter
of the philosophy of Bertrand Russel, we have decided in the
interests of tolerance and pluralism to leave them equally ignorant
of the Bible. Our young people enjoy a perfect democracy of
ignorance.

-Literary critic Peter Marchand, commenting on the removal of the
Bible from public school classrooms
