Famous quotes containing the words catholicism and/or political:

    When Catholicism goes bad it becomes the world-old, world-wide religio of amulets and holy places and priestcraft. Protestantism, in its corresponding decay, becomes a vague mist of ethical platitudes. Catholicism is accused of being too much like all the other religions; Protestantism of being insufficiently like a religion at all. Hence Plato, with his transcendent Forms, is the doctor of Protestants; Aristotle, with his immanent Forms, the doctor of Catholics.
    —C.S. (Clive Staples)

    Whether you want it or not,
    your genes have a political past,
    your skin a political tone.
    your eyes a political color.
    you walk with political steps
    on political ground.
    Wislawa Szymborska (b. 1923)
