2 quotes (Grayling)

When the Bible was the only standardly available text, people not unsurprisingly thought it contained all truth; but when their reading widened, so did their horizons.
A. C. Grayling, The Mystery of Things
Anyone would be thought weird who liked to have on his walls depictions of hanged criminals or corpses sagging from an electric chair, even if the victim in question had done him a good turn; but Christianity being what it is, depictions of an executed man is one of the chief icons of its faith.
A. C. Grayling, The Mystery of Things
