“Fanaticism is, in reference to superstition, what delirium is to fever, or rage to anger. He who is involved in ecstasies and visions, who takes dreams for realities, and his own imaginations for prophecies, is a fanatical novice of great hope and promise, and will probably soon advance to the highest form, and kill man for the love of God.”

Philosophical Dictionary, Voltaire (1694-1778)

“The path of violence and hatred does not solve the problems of humanity, and using the name of God to justify this path is blasphemy.”

Pope Francis
