A Nonconformist divine, doubting in his age the fanciful heresies of his youth, and fearing the everlasting torments which might hereafter await him, funked. He became an atheist, reasoning that if religion were tripe, deviation would not matter. Thus he died at peace.
Moral: Comfort is where you find it.
