Quote of the Day 6-14-17 (Oscar Wilde)

Posted: June 14, 2017 in Christianity, Religion

“Shallow speakers and shallow thinkers in pulpits and on platforms often talk about the world’s worship of pleasure, and whine against it. But it is rarely in the world’s history that its ideal has been one of joy and beauty. The worship of pain has far more often dominated the world. Medievalism, with its saints and martyrs, its love of self-torture . . . is real Christianity, and the medieval Christ is the real Christ.”

–Oscar Wilde, The Soul of Man Under Socialism
