“You say that you people don’t burn folk and sacrifice people anymore, but that’s what true faith would mean y’see? Sacrificin’ your own life, one day at a time, to the flame, declaring’ the truth of it, workin’ for it, breathin’ the soul of it. That’s religion. Anything else is just …. Is just bein’ nice. “

Terry Pratchett – Carpe Jugulum
