St. Augustine

Often, a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other parts of the world, about the motions and orbits of the stars and even their sizes and distances, … and this knowledge he holds with certainty from reason and experience. It is thus offensive and disgraceful for an unbeliever to hear a Christian talk nonsense about such things, claiming that what he is saying is based in Scripture. We should do all we can to avoid such an embarrassing situation, which people see as ignorance in the Christian and laugh to scorn.

"If it's not love then it's the bomb the bomb the bomb the bomb the bomb the bomb the bomb that will bring us together."

Leonard Cohen

I can't run no more
With that lawless crowd
While the killers in high places
Say their prayers out loud

The Tempest

Though with their high wrongs I am struck to the quick,
Yet with my nobler reason 'gainst my fury
Do I take part. The rarer action is 
In virtue than in vengeance.

V.i.25-28
