"The only way in which a human being can make some approach to knowing the whole of a subject is by hearing what can be said about it by persons of every variety of opinion and studying all modes in which it can be looked at by every character of mind. No wise man ever acquired his wisdom in any mode but this." -John Stuart Mill

Catholic Cardinal Calls for Reform

"The primary thing to consider should not be the sin, but people’s striving to live according to the commandments… Instead of a morality based on duty, we should work towards a morality based on happiness."
-Austrian Cristoph Cardinal Schönborn, on his view that the Catholic Church is “urgently in need of reform” with regard to its positions on remarriage after divorce and homosexual relationships
