Religion supports nobody. It has to be supported. It produces no wheat, no corn; it ploughs no land. It is a perpetual mendicant. It lives on the labours of others, and then has the arrogance to pretend that it supports the giver.

There is a story, which is fairly well known, about when the missionaries came to Africa. They had the Bible and we, the natives, had the land. They said “Let us pray,” and we dutifully shut our eyes. When we opened them, why, they now had the land and we had the Bible.
- Desmond M. Tutu, “Religious Human Rights and the Bible”
