I Never Cease to Be Amazed... how much Chesterton's clear thinking would help some people at the Times Literary Supplement to think.

  1. So basically, Chesterton is exactly right in every aspect of his criticism, except where it pits his religion and philosophy against the religion/ philosophy of others? Once again, this Chesterton critic wants to have it both ways.

    All the -ites and -ists and -isms can, as Chesterton said, be safely labeled under the heading of Protestantism. All of them are a revolt against the Catholic Church, and nothing else.

    This critic says that Chesterton is right about humanity, right about the high and holy role of women, right about a great deal in fact. But his religion is precisely where he goes wrong. I wonder, though, if it wasn't Chesterton's religion that fostered in him the correct view of humanity and the proper way of looking at women... Of course it was.
