"There are other aspersions cast on the character of Islamn by the 'whited sepulchres' of Christianity. Its fatalism is referred to, its belief in a material heaven and hell and a sensual paradise. What of these? True, exoteric Islam has them for the lowest of its flock, as we Christians have our plenary absolution, predestination, vicarious atonement, and many other absurdities, believed only by those who are content to allow so-called 'men of God' to do their thinking for them!" - from the essay "An Aspect of Islam" by E. E. Long, page 144. [Seller ref: KnightCol]; 4to [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
