Michael Ingham may not aspire to be a modern day Martin Luther, but he just might be one.

Luther, tragic figure that he is, had more courage in his little finger than this guy has in his whole body.

Dick: “Do you really think there are no sins of intellect?”

Episcopal Ghost: “There are indeed, Dick. There is hide-bound prejudice, and intellectual dishonesty, and timidity and stagnation. But honest opinions fearlessly followed-they are not sins.”

Dick: “I know we used to talk that way. I did it too until the end of my life when I became what you call narrow. It all turns on what are honest opinions.”

Episcopal Ghost: “Mine certainly were. They were not only honest but heroic. I asserted them fearlessly. When the doctrine of the Resurrection ceased to commend itself to the critical faculties which God had given me, I openly rejected it. I preached my famous sermon. I defied the whole chapter. I took every risk.”

Dick: “What risk? What was at all likely to come of it except what actually came -popularity, sales for your books, invitations, and finally a bishopric?” – C.S. Lewis, The Great Divorce
