There's nothing repulsive in Chestertonian Christianity...

If you take offense to it being against paganism, that's because it's closer to the kind of Christianity that, unlike modern protestant christianity, supercedes paganism and is born from its era and as a reaction to its dead ends.

In that sense that christianity was more paganistic (and more in touch with the original paganism, it's adoptants were literally original pagans) than much of modern paganism (which is modernity in cosplay).

Thanks for the recommendation. I may give it a read.

I like this: "We already live in a place and time where the 'new' is reified and fetishized. What we need is not more new things, but old things made new. "
