THE CHURCH

I
RELIGION from primitive times has been accepted as necessary to the maintenance of civil order. In the past, when a rational justification of authority was lacking, a supernatural one had to be found. In more recent times the existence of a divine law backed by the sanctions of hell-fire has still been regarded as an essential support of the secular power. Without such fear of suffering after death it has been believed that obedience to law here and now would not be forthcoming. That link between the church and the defence of the political status quo has long been maintained. While, under the influence of utilitarianism, the older philosophy has been on the decline, other arguments in favour of the church have been heard that endeavour to meet the rationalist on his own ground. The parish priest, it is suggested, provides a nucleus of culture; he is the emissary of "the foremost files of time" in the backward village; he brings the intellectual atmosphere of the university and the superior social standards of the upper class among the uneducated and the unpolished. He is a leader whose services are necessary both in preserving social standards in this world and in preparing, by the inculcation of a higher scale of values, for the next. As such he is the valuable servant of state as well as church. In that capacity he is an institution both of charity and of order. While the policeman has the comparatively crude function of arresting the criminal when crime is actually committed, the clergy
