Penn Jillette said something like this.

"You can't stop insane people from doing insane things by making insane laws...that's insane."
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"
The more you know...

If it makes you feel any better, I liked your wording more than the original's.
