Sorry folks, this is a long quote…
“Some people do not like the word “dogma.” Fortunately they are free, and there is an alternative for them. There are two things, and two things only for the human mind, a dogma and a prejudice. The MIddle Ages were a rational epoch, an age of doctrine. Our age is, at its best, a poetical epoch, an age of prejudice. A doctrine is a definite point; a prejudice is a direction.”
He then argues that these vague prejudices separates us even more than definite doctrines, despite those doctrines being opposite. It is easier to combat someone’s clear and defined statement or belief, than their “I’m okay, you’re okay” feelings that hide prejudiced thoughts. The devil has covered the thinking world with a mist of paralysing relativism, where you cannot even question another’s belief, right or wrong, because their thoughts are their own.
And that’s all I’m gonna say about THAT!
