'Some... equate goodness with indifference to evil
and think that God is good if
He is broadminded or tolerant about evil.
Like the onlookers at the Cross, they want God on their terms,
not His, and they shout 'come down, and we will believe.'
'But the things they ask are the marks of a false religion:
it promises salvation without a cross,
abandonment without sacrifice,
Christ without His nails.'
Venerable Fulton Sheen
