On this date in 1813 Giuseppe Verdi was born. He was known to be anti-clerical and I never tire of this quote: “Stay away from priests.” *

Kurt Youngmann

*—Giuseppe Verdi to his cousin Angiolo Cararra Verdi, perhaps referencing a childhood incident where Verdi was pushed down altar steps by a priest (quoted in Verdi: A Biography by Mary Jane Phillips-Matz, 1993).

“Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don’t have all the answers to think that they do.” - Bill Maher
