“Catholicism, all religion if you like, but particularly Catholicism, is a delicious narcotic. It may soothe the pains and chase our worries, but it checks our growth and saps our strengths. Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and for God's sake leave God to look after his own affairs.”

Winston Churchill1874 – 1965
