Thus If A Man Wearing

Thus if a man wearing an "I Hate Jesuits" doublet comes up to you on your way home from mass and asks in a threatening manner "What religion are you?", you can say "Why, Protestant of course," then mentally add "Not really! Up Pope Urban!" and proceed, troubled by neither your questioner's dagger nor your conscience.

Too many people take this kind of analysis seriously. I've spoken to theologians who seem to believe that what you say is the most important aspect of any situation.

Of course, many Churches spend copious amounts of time arguing about intention vs. action vs. ends vs. means vs. personal advancement -- as though such things exist in a vacuum.
