Famous quotes containing the word christians:

    There is not a Musselman alive who would not imagine that he was performing an action pleasing to God and his Holy Prophet by exterminating every Christian on earth, while the Christians are scarcely more tolerant on their side.
    Denis Diderot (1713–1784)

    There were honest people long before there were Christians and there are, God be praised, still honest people where there are no Christians. It could therefore easily be possible that people are Christians because true Christianity corresponds to what they would have been even if Christianity did not exist.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    There are only two sorts of people in life you can trust—good Christians and good Communists.
    Joe Slovo (b. 1926)
