About this Quote

This quote by James Joyce talks to the concept that the Church is not tolerant of any beliefs or philosophies that differ from its own. He is suggesting that the Church is more intolerant of people than it is of any other belief system. This could be translated as a criticism of the Church's propensity to be special and to reject those who do not adhere to its teachings. It might likewise be seen as a reminder that the Church need to be more open to different viewpoints and to the idea that people must be accepted regardless of their beliefs. Ultimately, this quote is a reminder that the Church ought to be more accepting of variety and of individuals who may not share its beliefs.
