From Shaw's "The Devil's Disciple"

"Into the merits of these idealizations it is not here necessary to inquire: suffice it to say, without prejudice, that they have convinced both Americans and English that the most high minded course for them to pursue is to kill as many of one another as possible, and that military operations to that effect are in full swing, morally supported by confident requests from the clergy of both sides for the blessing of God on their arms."

"I see little divinity about you. You talk to me of Christianity when you are in the act of hanging your enemies? Was there ever such blasphemous nonsense!"
