Bonus Quotation of the Day…

… is from the 17th-century liberal theologian John Tillotson, as quoted on page 254 of Will & Ariel Durant’s 1963 volume, The Age of Louis XIV:

We need not desire any better evidence that a man is in the wrong than to hear him declare against reason, and thereby to acknowledge that reason is against him.

DBx: Perfectly put. This acid and accurate observation is as apt today as it was when Tillotson first offered it centuries ago.
