"Religion is returning from her exile"

"EUROPE at present exhibits a concentration upon politics which is partly the unfortunate result of our loss of religion, partly the just and needful result of our loss of our social inequality and iniquity. These causes, however, will not remain in operation for ever. Religion is returning from her exile; it is more likely that the future will be crazily and corruptly superstitious than that it will be merely rationalist."

~G.K. Chesterton: from What is Right With the World (Collected in The Apostle and the Wild Ducks and other essays)
