Ambrose Bierce
(1842 - 1914)
Clergyman, n. A man who undertakes the management of our spiritual affairs as a method of bettering his temporal ones.
H. L. Mencken
(1880 - 1956)
Of learned men, the clergy show the lowest development of professional ethics. Any pastor is free to cadge customers from the divines of rival sects, and to denounce the divines themeselves as theological quacks.
Voltaire
(1694 - 1778)
A clergyman is one who feels himself called upon to live without working at the expense of the rascals who work to live.
