"We may look into a church, almost any church, and discover someone who, though he is offered a gospel of love, must subtly convert it into a gospel of hate before he can receive it. The gospel of love--with its emphasis upon brotherhood, equality before God, the dignity of every human being, and man's social responsibility toward man--does not satisfy the lack that he urgently feels. That calls for something altogether different, for an assurance that he is superior, that he is right where others are wrong--a kind of cosmic teacher's pet."

-- Bonaro W. Overstreet
