    The Grand Inquisitor

    "Anyone who can appease a man's conscience can take his freedom away from him."

    -spoken by the Inquisitor in the parable of The Grand Inquisitor, from The Brothers Karamazov (1879-1880), by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.

    The Inquisitor advances this argument by explaining why Christ was wrong to reject each temptation by Satan. Christ should have turned stones into bread, as men will always follow those who will feed their bellies. The Inquisitor recalls how Christ rejected this saying, "Man cannot live on bread alone," and explains to Christ "Feed men, and then ask of them virtue! That's what they'll write on the banner they'll raise against Thee." Casting himself down from the temple to be caught by angels would cement his godhood in the minds of people, who would follow him forever. Rule over all the kingdoms of the Earth would ensure their salvation, the Grand Inquisitor claims.

    If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

    Good thing this is in the joke forum although I can't see the humor in it.
