Impiety. Your irreverence toward my deity.
Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914) American newspaperman and short-story writer.
Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns.
Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855) English novelist and poet,
In America few people will trust you unless you are irreverent.
Norman Mailer (1923-?) American writer.
True irreverence is disrespect for another man's god.
Mark Twain (1835-1910) U.S. humorist, writer, and lecturer.
