House paraphrases Ethan Allen

Original quote by Ethan Allen: "...if ordinary human beings were assumed to be perfectly capable of thinking of reasoning for themselves, the clergy would be out of work." (Thanks to Gaytor for the origins of the quote!)

Shine, I tripped over the original source for this quote in Freethinkers by Susam Jacoby. Ethan Allen "...if ordinary human beings were assumed to be perfectly capable of thinking of reasoning for themselves, the clergy would be out of work."
Trying to get the word out as it was a founding father that really said this.
