The proud person, subject to another’s authority, hates first of all the particular yoke that weights upon him.

In a second stage, the proud man hates all authority in general and all yokes, and, even more, the very principle of authority considered in the abstract.

Because he hates all authority, he also hates superiority of any kind.

Algernon C. Swinburne, (1837 – 1909), was a misotheist who publicly announced his hatred of God. Misotheism is the hatred of God.

And in all this there is a true hatred for God.

The inequalities that exist between beings are “ipso facto” a sublime and most ample school of anti-atheism.

Roger Garaudy (1913-2012)

The French communist writer Roger Garaudy, who later “converted” to Islam, seemed to understand this when he pointed out how important it was for the world-wide victory of atheism to eliminated social inequalities.
