There have been abundance of people, in all ages of Christianity, who tried ... to convert us into a sort of Christian Mussulmans, with the bible for a Koran, prohibiting all improvement: and great has been there power, and many have had to sacrifice their lives in resisting them. But they have been resisted, and the resistance has made us what we are, and will yet make us what we are to be.

-- John Stuart Mill, The Subjection of Women (1869)
