QUOTATION: Conscience

Blessed John Henry Newman
Conscience has rights because it has duties; but in this age, with a large portion of the public, it is the very right and freedom of conscience to dispense with conscience, to ignore a Lawgiver and Judge, to be independent of unseen obligations. It becomes license to take up any or no religion, to take up this or that and let it go again, to go to church, to go to chapel, to boast of being above all religions, and to be impartial critic of each of them.

--Blessed John Henry Newman, The Difficulties of Anglicans
