Yes, organized religion is a crutch. You mean you didn't know that you are a cripple?Well that is to the point.
Peter Kreeft, Practical Theology
And what is most to the point, I never thought to look at it that way. Yes. Yes, I am a cripple. Every time I put my crutch down, thinking I can hobble along well on my own, I find I am soon limping and then crawling.
