Luther and Lewis

For the names of all the virtues are names of God.—Martin Luther, Exposition of the Lord's Prayer for simple layfolk, 1519

I am a democrat because I believe in the Fall of Man. I think most people are democrats for the oppoite reason.... The real reason for democracy is just the reverse. Mankind is so fallen that no man can be trusted with unchecked power over his fellows.—C. S. Lewis, Business of Heaven, p. 186.
