“What is so beautiful and simultaneously dangerous about Christianity is that Christians want to convert everyone to their faith – so with the beauty of this ideal comes the fact that they’ve killed so many people. There is nothing more beautiful in Christianity than the fact that Christ was killed for everybody. Christ’s last words were incredible, they were: ‘I’m thirsty; Father, why have you forsaken me?’ and ‘I’m dying’ – which are all so human. It’s so amazing that a religion can be built on these words, the words of a man at the moment of such weakness and despair.”

– Christian Boltanski
