Quote for the day: T.S. Eliot on politics and atheism

"The more a political creed usurps the place of religious creed, the more risk of its becoming merely a façade. The popular result of ignoring religion seems to be merely that the populace transfer their religious emotions to political theories. Few people are sufficiently civilized to afford atheism."  ~~ T.S. Eliot, "Mr. Barnes and Mr. Rowse," The Criterion, July 1929
