Deep within the heart of every evangelist lies the wreck of a car salesman.

In the words of Oscar Wilde, "I wish I'd said that."

A person could read at that page for hours and learn lots of quotes from famous people. I just read all of Mencken.

Yeah, old H.L. is definitely one of my heroes. He's right up there with Mark Twain as far as articulately calling bullshit. We could sure use the debunking likes of him around these days. I think Pierce may be about as close as we'll get.

One of my favorite works by Mencken is his coverage of the the community in Dayton, Tennessee, during the Scopes Monkey Trial. Entitled A Religious Orgy in Tennesseeit's great reading 80+ years after the event.
