The Marquis De Sade on religion

Is there one not marked by imposture and stupidity? What do I see in all of them? Mysteries that insult reason, dogmas that go against the law of nature, grotesque ceremonies that only inspire derision and disgust. But if one of them particularly merits our scorn and our hatred, isn't it the barbaric Christendom into which we were both born? Is there a more odious one? Is there one which more offends the heart and the spirit?
