When Truth Is Hated

Truth can be hated, because it implies responsibility.  Goodness is hated, because it is a reproach. If Our Blessed Lord had been tolerant and broad-minded, He would never have been crucified; it was the perfection of His virtue which constituted a judgment of the wicked.

—From Peace of Soul by Venerable Fulton Sheen, Ch 10: Remorse and Pardon

Our Lord was crucified by the nice people who held that religion was all right in its place, so long as its place was not here, where it might demand of them a change of heart.

—From Peace of Soul by Venerable Fulton Sheen, Ch. 5: Morbidity and the Denial of Guilt
