Food for thought: check the date
Plus ça change. Written about the same time Catholic Dorothy Sayers said religion had become a hobby of little old ladies and pale-faced curates (nothing against either mind) and the Lion of Judah turned into a declawed moggie. A Simple Sinner touched upon these issues in my com-boxes recently as I did here (religion as cute ethnic customs for naming babies, having pretty weddings and nice funerals: hatch, match and despatch... young-adult rites of passage too: first Communions, bar mitzvahs). Here’s the problem: how does one stop this happening without falling into a theocratic fascism (thank you, C.S. Lewis) of the right or the left?
