Christians, indeed, have a special obligation not to forget how great and how inextinguishable the human proclivity for violence is, or how many victims it has claimed, for they worship a God who does not merely take the part of these victims, but who was himself one of them, murdered by the combined authority and moral prudence of the political, religious and legal powers of human society.

Which is, incidentally, the most subversive claim ever made in the history of the human race.

– David Bentley Hart, Atheist Delusions: The Christian Revolution and Its Fashionable Enemies, p. 18.
