Today's Maxwell Quote

From Wherefore, Ye Must Press Forward (1977), 14-15:
We cannot count on a society increasingly slipping into homosexuality to be on its guard against homosexuality. The more normal abnormalities become, the less reason people have for being wary of them. Various movements involving sex and drugs, and even some involving music, once basically an effort to flee and to escape, have now taken the offensive.

We need to have compassion and love for those who are trying to escape the world. We need to try to understand them and the root causes for their behavior. What we do not need to do, however, is to follow them. They are to be pitied and understood, not praised nor followed.
