G.K. two days in a row:
The truth is that we could all find reason for rebelling against theology every week; just as we could all find reason for rebelling against Government every week.

G.K. Chesterton in the Illustrated London News, March 16, 1907
(But I got it, as usual, from gkchestertonquote.com here. You can get these delivered directly to your twitterfeed, you know, and obviate the need to depend on the vagaries of The Inn's publishing schedule to get your GKC. Yes, I know. Using the word "schedule" in regard to The Inn is stretching a point to its breaking isn't it.)
