C.S. Lewis quote-of-the-week

"One of the marks of a certain type of bad man is that he cannot give up a [neutral] thing himself without wanting every one else to give it up...The moment he starts saying the things are bad in themselves, or looking down his nose at other people who do use them, he has taken the wrong turning."

--Mere Christianity, Book 3, chapter 2

This is one of the things that Christians occasionally do that gives God a black eye in the minds of others. That said, of course, this sin is certainly not unique to Christians...
