G.K. Chesterton on Religion and Right and Wrong

We do not really want a religion that is right where we are right. What we want is a religion that is right where we are wrong.

—G.K. Chesterton, The Catholic Church and Conversion

Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.

—G.K. Chesterton, The Illustrated London News (23 October 1909)

ILN

—I read both quotes above at the Ignatius Press Chesterton site.
