Excerpt from The Safe Side: A Theistic Refutation of the Divinity of Christ Complicated questions in politics or religion are generally such only through the great interests that grow up under long accepted ideas and become too powerful to be suppressed when time has demonstrated that those ideas were founded in error. The questions themselves are usually simple eugh; in fact there is generally question except as to how to act on new ideas in spite of the opposition of those interested in customs established by old ones. Hence our natural assumption that the opposition to religious or political reform is at all times a vicious and igrant one, is t true. The opponents are often influential, intelligent, and prosperous. Even then, however, it would t be difficult to overcome them if the evil to be corrected were made conspicuous by isolation; but erroneous ideas are associated with so much that is true that the mind is misled and their separation becomes a difficult task.
