Religion (pars tres) - Faith

  • Émile Zola was an acclaimed French novelist, a socialist and, though baptized catholic, an agnostic and critic of the Roman Catholic Church.  "Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest."  When I read his quote, I was struck by how much meaning was lost if one doesn't put it in context with another of his quotes, "When truth is buried underground it grows, it chokes, it gathers such an explosive force that on the day it bursts out, it blows up everything with it.  The truth is on the march, and nothing shall stop it.”
