Christians have killed each other

SHARE

Christians have killed each other, quite persuaded 
That all the apostles would have done as they did. 
(Byron, Don Juan.)

Wonderful lines - Byron was not a great poet until Beppo and Don Juan, where he approaches, at a fair distance, the greatness of his idol, Pope.

  1. Byron was perfectly happy killing people without any such justifications.
