Quote #14

A being who can create a race of men devoid of real freedom and inevitably foredoomed to be sinners, and then punish them for being what he has made them, may be omnipotent and various other things, but he is not what the English language has always intended by the adjective holy.

John Stuart Mill

(from The Quotable Atheist by Jack Huberman)
