Christianity is the most perverted system that ever shone on man...(Quotation)
From Thomas Jefferson Encyclopedia
This is a somewhat-paraphrased version of the following:
"...those who live by mystery & charlatanerie, fearing you would render them useless by simplifying the Christian philosophy, the most sublime & benevolent, but most perverted system that ever shone on man, endeavored to crush your well earnt, & well deserved fame." - Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Priestley, Washington, 21 March 1801
