“It is characteristic of our age that people want to have God, but do not want to have the Devil. People are inventing gods for themselves….But they are gods who do not demand much of them, and they are certainly not gods who punish, although they are allowed to reward. On the contrary, their gods absolve them from conflict and doubt, massage them, pat them on the head, and, rather like their parents, tell them to run along….So easy it is to love! But above all they are gods who will not trouble them with the fact of evil. The problems of evil, suffering, and death are not confronted, but evaded and dismissed….Universal harmony has never been offered so cheaply before.–The Seven Deadly Sins Today, Henry Fairlie, p. 15-16.
