How about an incomplete attribution? "On the edge of destiny you must test your strength." was attributed to Billy. Billy who? Billy Bishop, if you do a simple web search.

Angry Not incomplete ,but

We found nothing grand in the history of the Jews nor in the morals inculcated in the Pentateuch. I know of no other books that so fully teach the subjection and degradation of woman. Elizabeth Cady Stanton

What is the purpose of posting quotes that dump on anyone's religion? I really don't care whether it's Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Buddhism, or whatever.

Default What if

it's the truth?

Then again, you can opt for showing no offensive quotes, however what's offensive to you doesn't seem to be offensive to me.

Rant on

While I would never "dump" on any of the religions you've mentioned, I wouldn't find it too offensive if there was a quote denouncing Satanism. Admittedly, this is perhaps not a major religion, but how about the Church of Scientology? They even have an IRS exemption these days. I have to admit I wouldn't find a quote denouncing Scientology offensive.

Default Incomplete quote

"A heroic figure... not wholly to blame for the religion that's been foisted on him. "

Ezra Pound was referring to Jesus Christ.

Not only do we miss the reference, it is also a dig at religion.

Question Hmmm....

Consider, if you will, the source. A purported anti-Semite who used to consort with Mussolini and spent time in Italy during World War II as a pro-Axis propagandist on the radio. After being brought up on treason charges in the US, he pleaded insanity and spent the next 12 years in an asylum.



Mark it 10-stars offensive if you will. I've certainly done this to a number of quotes. Nonetheless, in my preferences, I don't ask admin to filter out offensive quotes.
