Better a thousandfold abuse of free speech than denial of free speech. ---->>>

The abuse dies in a day, but the denial slays the life of the people, and entombs the hope of the race. ---->>>

I cannot follow you Christians; for you try to crawl through your life upon your knees, while I stride through mine on my feet. ---->>>

Charles Bradlaugh (; 26 September 1833 – 30 January 1891) was an English political activist, atheist and British republican. He founded the National Secular Society in 1866. In 1880, Bradlaugh was elected as the Liberal MP for Northampton. His attempt to affirm as an atheist, rather than take a parliamentary Oath of Allegiance which assumed a new MP was a Christian (and a Monarchist), ultimately led to his temporary imprisonment, fines for voting in the Commons illegally, and a number of by-elections at which Bradlaugh regained his seat on each occasion (wikipedia)
