  2. Umberto Eco:

    There is only one thing that arouses animals more than pleasure, and that is pain. Under torture you are as if under the dominion of those grasses that produce visions. Everything you have heard told, everything you have read returns to your mind, as if you were being transported, not toward heaven, but toward hell.

  5. Pat Boone:

    God has a sense of humor. Why else would he invent the porcupine and the giraffe ? something can be devilishly funny, but this skit is diabolical. God has only one real enemy — Satan.

Then they throw in that the lawyer is Jewish to make the Christian look even worse, but it’s just anti-Semitic.
