“You think that others, too, are gods, whom we know to be devils. However, it is a fundamental human right, a privilege of nature, then every man should worship according to his own convictions: one man's religion neither harms nor helps another man. It is assuredly no part of religion to compel religion – to which free will and not force should lead us – the sacrificial victims even being required of a willing mind. You will render no real service to your gods by compelling us to sacrifice.” Tertullian, To Scapula, 2, ANF 3:105
