"He nor anyone else can love humanity"

"CHRIST did not love humanity, He never said He loved humanity; He loved men. Neither He nor anyone else can love humanity; it is like loving a gigantic centipede. And the reason that the Tolstoians can even endure to think of an equally distributed love is that their love of humanity is a logical love, a love into which they are coerced by their own theories, a love which would be an insult to a tom-cat."

 ~G.K. Chesterton: Tolstoy and the Cult of Simplicity (Twelve Types).
