Celsus on Christianity

Taking its root in the lower classes, the religion continues to spread among the vulgar: nay, one can even say it spreads because of its vulgarity and the illiteracy of its adherents. And while there are a few moderate, reasonable, and intelligent people who are inclined to interpret its beliefs allegorically, yet it thrives in its purer forms among the ignorant.
True then and true today.

Taken from John Dominic Crossan's Jesus, A Revolutionary Biography
