Nietzsche: On Priests

"The priest, a parasitical variety of man who can exist only at the cost of every sound view of life, takes the name of God in vain: he calls that state of human society in which he himself determines the value of all things "the Kingdom of God"; he calls the means whereby that state of affairs is attained "the Will of God," with cold-blooded cynicism he estimates all people, all ages, and all individuals by the extent of their subservience or opposition to the power of the priestly order."

 --Friedrich Nietzsche, The Antichrist
