Thomas Paine on religion and equal rights.

"Every history of creation, and every traditionary account, whether from the lettered or the unlettered world, however they may vary in their opinion on belief of certain particulars, all agree in establishing one point, the unity of mankind; by which I mean that man is all of one degree, and consequently that all men are born equal, and with equal natural rights." Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1792.
