On Religious Experts

“Never trust anyone who says he is serving God.  They will use sweet words on you, and sound so educated you will not understand the half of it.  They will try to convince you with arguments that only they know how to spin, until they have seduced your reason and your conscience . . .  Their words are excuses, and their reasoning is of the sort you might use with a child.”

Ildefonso Falcones,  Cathedral of the Sea, New American Library 2006

Imagine that.  Why, I doubt he’s ever even BEEN to Moscow . . .
