"When people begin to ignore human dignity, it will not be long before they begin to ignore human rights."

Some of the most civilized and highly organized cultures, like Carthage at its wealthiest, had human sacrifice at its worst. Culture, like science, is no protection against demons.

Abortion is the Antichrist's demonic parody of the Eucharist. That's why it uses the same holy words, "This is my body," with the blasphemously opposite meaning. —Peter Kreeft

A society is in decay, final or transitional, when common sense has really become very uncommon. Straightforward ideas appear strange or unfamiliar, and any thought that does not follow the conventional curve or twist, is supposed to be a sort of joke.

If we look at abortion for what it is, we can see, ironically, that no aborted fetus ought to have existed in the first place. https://t.co/dzvMRt1CEO

Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice.

In a word, a war is not one thing. It is two things which contradict each other.

It is not the problem of two men and how they shall act together; it is the problem of one man when the other man will not act with him. They do not agree to have war; if they could agree to have war, they would probably agree to have peace.

It is idle to talk of it at all in terms of the collective and co-operative action of two parties; it is by definition the condition in which they have to consider themselves separately.

War is not a proposal; it is the refusal of all proposals. War is not an institution; it is the breakdown of all institutions. It is not something that we all agree to have; it is something that we do have when we do not agree.

Biden is an abortion extremist. He favors abortion through all nine months of pregnancy and beyond. https://t.co/ANaBshZQwV

These are the days when the Christian is expected to praise every creed except his own.

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 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.

Dostoevsky was one of the two or three greatest novelists of the nineteenth century. And he cared for nothing but Christ who had made him free. It is worth thinking about.

Can you hate the world enough to change it, and yet love it enough to think it worth changing?

In truth there are only two kinds of people, those who accept dogmas and know it, and those who accept dogmas and don't know it.

“We should always endeavour to wonder at the permanent thing, not at the mere exception. We should be startled by the sun, and not by the eclipse. We should wonder less at the earthquake, and wonder more at the earth” GK Chesterton.

It is not that we don’t have enough scoundrels to curse; it is that we don’t have enough good men to curse them.
