"We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both."
Louis D. Brandeis (Supreme Court Justice)
Thomas Aikenhead (c.1676-1697), a young University of Edinburgh student who allegedly railed against the Holy Trinity and stated that the doctrines of Christian theology were “a rapsodie of faigned and ill-invented nonsense” was judicially hanged for his offence on January 8, 1697. His execution, which raised considerable concern, was the last execution for blasphemy in Britain.
