    • 1819, Lord Byron, Don Juan, I:
      Lucretius' irreligion is too strong, / For early stomachs, to prove wholesome food []
    • 1967, Theodor R. Sizer, ‎Nicholas Wolterstoff, Religion and Public Education (page 5)
      When we put this idea together with that of the other prescription, we see that what the two together demand is that, with respect to their religions and irreligions, all men shall stand before the government as equals.
