From Katolik Shinja
On conviction vs opinion
Jeff Culbreath on the secular world’s hypocrisy, with a Catholic classic quotation:
The world, of course, confuses opinion with conviction. We Catholics must hold the revealed truths of the Faith (and their many corollaries) with unwavering ferocity. Yet the world isn't going to cooperate: we're expected to be indifferentists when it comes to religion but fierce partisans when it comes to sports or economics or SUVs. T.S. Eliot was right when he said "The world is soft where the Church is hard, and the world is hard where the Church is soft."

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
