Christian Morality

I do not suggest that the Church does wrong to pay attention to the regulation of bodily appetites and the proper observance of holidays. What I do suggest is that by over-emphasising this side of morality, to the comparative neglect of others, she has not only betrayed her mission but, incidentally, defeated her own aims even about “morality.” She has, in fact, made an alliance with Caesar, and Caesar, having used her for his own purposes, has now withdrawn his support — for that is Caesar’s pleasant way of behaving.
