Thomas Paine on Religion in The Rights of Man

Persecution is not an original feature of any religion, but is always the strongly marked feature of...religions established by law. Take away the law establishment and every religion resumes its original benignity.

I think this is particularly apt today when government officials want to enact laws based on their particular religion or subject the public to the laws to their religion.
