Your Afternoon Chesterton

Yes, I’m on a kick, but don’t stop me – this stuff is good for us.

“Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice.” – G. K. Chesterton, Illustrated London News 9/11/09

    Thanks, Anchoress – another great quote for my Facebook page.

    For the record, yesterday I added the following (from Mike Ditka, of all persons, and attributed to West African percussionist Babatunde Olatunji:

    Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery; today is God’s gift – that’s why we call it the present.
