Quotable Friday: from Slaughterhouse-Five

“The flaw in the Christ stories, said the visitor from outer space, was that Christ, who didn’t look like much, was actually the son of the Most Powerful Being in the Universe. Readers understood that, so when they came to the crucifixion, they naturally thought, and Rosewater read out loud again:

Oh boy — they sure picked the wrong guy to lynch that time!

That thought had a brother: “There are right people to lynch.” Who? People not well connected. So it goes.”
