Chesterton quote

"The secular society of today...has not merely broken the church window..., it has also kicked away the ladder of progress by which it had climbed...So far from it being self-evident to the modern man that men are created equal, it is not self-evident that men are created, or even that men are men...We shall soon be in a world in which a man may be howled down for saying that two and two make four, in which furious party cries will be raised against anybody who says that cows have horns, in which people will persecute the heresy of calling a triangle a three-sided figure, and hang a man for maddening a mob with the news that grass is green." -- G. K. Chesterton
