Quote of the _______

More from Mr. Chesterton and What's Wrong With the World.

But in the modern world we are primarily confronted with the extraordinary spectacle of people turning to new ideals because they have not tried the old. Men have not got tired of Christianity; they have never found enough Christianity to get tired of. Men have never wearied of political justice; they have wearied of waiting for it.

In a way it reminds me of that great quote by Fulton J. Sheen:

There are not more than 100 people in the world who truly hate the Catholic Church, but there are millions who hate what they perceive to be the Catholic Church.

In almost every 'discussion' that I've gotten into with Protestant friends, their main criticisms are about things that people have done within the Church, not with what she actually believes. Unfortunately, at the time, I didn't know enough to properly defend my Faith or refute their arguments. Sorry apologetics...
