    This was true when Poe wrote it but totalitarian political ideology has now toppled religion from it’s place as Most Lethal Killer of Humans. Personally, I think this is unfair to religion. What might have been accomplished had machine guns, bombs, mines and mustard gas been available to the crusaders or the inquisition? Still, a silver medal ‘aint bad.
