“You cannot believe in God unless you are capable of questioning the authority of prejudice, even though that prejudice may seem to be religious. Faith is not blind conformity to a prejudice – a ‘pre-judgment.’ It is a decision, a judgment that fully and deliberately takes in the light of a truth that cannot be proven.”–Thomas Merton

From New Seeds of Contemplation by Thomas Merton (New Directions Books, p.105)
