‘WHEREVER THERE IS ANIMAL WORSHIP THERE IS HUMAN SACRIFICE’: Please Forward This To Liberal Friends

Published on

This quote from G.K. Chesterton will give you chills. This world has gone mad.

From G. K. Chesterton, a few apropos words:

There is a healthy and an unhealthy love of animals: and the nearest definition of the difference is that the unhealthy love of animals is serious. I am quite prepared to love a rhinoceros, with reasonable precautions: he is, doubtless, a delightful father to the young rhinoceroses. But I will not promise not to laugh at a rhinoceros. . . . I will not worship an animal. That is, I will not take an animal quite seriously: and I know why.

Wherever there is Animal Worship there is Human Sacrifice. That is, both symbolically and literally, a real truth of historical experience.

— G. K. Chesterton, “On Seriousness,” The Uses of Diversity (1920).
