How to use crucify in a sentence?

  1. Robert Jeffress:

    When Christians act violently they are acting in opposition to the teachings of their founder, Jesus Christ, they cannot cite a single verse in the New Testament that calls for violence against unbelievers. On the other hand, radical Islamists can point to a number of verses in the Koran calling for Muslims to ‘crucify the infidels.’.

  2. Graziella Blatter-Bianca:

    Everyone wants to crucify him now, and no one wants to accept any more how much good he has done for soccer, especially for the advancement of women on the pitch as well as in the ranks of officialdom.

  3. Lindsey Graham:

    At the end of the day, I'm trying to distinguish ourselves from our enemies, they crucify people, they rape women, they sell them into slavery, they will kill people's children before their eyes.

  4. Thomas Carlyle:

    If Jesus Christ were to come today, people would not even crucify him. They would ask him to dinner, and hear what he had to say, and make fun of it.

  5. William Kunstler:

    You can crucify a Jesus, you can poison a Socrates, you can hang John Brown or Nathan Hale, you can kill a Che Guevara, you can jail a Eugene Debs or a Bobby Seale. You can assassinate John Kennedy or a Martin Luther King, but the problems remain, the hangman's rope never solved a single problem except that of one man.
