Almost Equal

“Anthony Comstock has proved himself equal to almost any of his Christian predecessors in the work of arresting, persecuting, and ruining his fellow beings. In the shameful qualities of falsehood, intrigue, entrapping, decoying unsuspecting victims, inveigling and tempting his fellow beings to commit offenses, that he might be able to punish them, he stands without a peer in the Christian ranks… As a champion of morality and decency, he is perhaps one of the most sensual, vile, and corrupt that has lived since Christian rule began.”

– De Robigne Mortimer Bennett in The Champions of the Church: Their Crimes and Persecutions (1878)
