"It is a mark of false religion that it is always trying to express concrete facts as abstract; it calls sex affinity; it calls wine alcohol; it calls brute starvation an economic problem. The test of true religion is that its energy drives exactly the other way; it is always trying to make men feel truths as facts; always trying to make abstract things as plain and solid as concrete things; always trying to make men, not merely admit the truth, but see, smell, handle, hear, and devour the truth." --Alarms and Discursions
I am a backwards, unenlightened, and happy Roman Catholic convert who stridently insists upon the goodness of God, the Fall of man, and the Solution. I live in Chicago with my wife and our son and daughter.
