    Matthew. vi. 24. “Ye cannot serve God and Mammon”, and yet just look at the buildings of the Catholic Church across so much of Catholic Europe for endless displays of extravagance of ecclesiastical wealth and what amounts to iconic adoration of it.

    As for mammaries, it is contemptible, shameful, shocking, . . . that the monotheistic religions—invented by, it seems, the meanest of mankind—were biased and patriarchal in intent and application, having been crafted by obviously prejudiced men and not by what might better have been evenhanded women.

  2. The Atheist Advocate Says:

    Might be a whole new ball game if the “church and state separation” clause was actually in effect and churches had to pay taxes on donated income and property!

  3. Critic Says:

    From THE DEVIL’S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) [devils]:

    MAMMON, n. The god of the world’s leading religion. The chief temple
    is in the holy city of New York.

    He swore that all other religions were gammon,
    And wore out his knees in the worship of Mammon.
