The Temptation of the Catholic to Intellectual Pride

The great temptation of the Catholic in the modern world is the temptation to intellectual pride. It is so obvious that most of his critics are talking without in the least knowing what they are talking about, that he is sometimes a little provoked toward the very unchristian logic of answering a fool according to his folly. But we must never despair of explaining the truth, nor is it so very difficult to explain.
G.K. Chesterton, quoted in My Name is Lazarus by Dale Ahlquist
