Inquisitive buggers, too

“Priests are the most evil enemies to have—why should this be so?  Because they are the most impotent.  It is their impotence which makes their hate so violent and sinister, so cerebral and poisonous.  The greatest haters in history—but also the most intelligent haters—have been priests.  Beside the brilliance of priestly vengeance all other brilliance fades.  Human history would be a dull and stupid thing without the intelligence furnished by its impotents.” – Friedrich Nietzsche, On the Genealogy of Morals (trans. Golffing)
