From The Mists of Avalon
“… – is that an evil thing, when mankind has forgotten the Mysteries?’

“They have not forgotten the mysteries,” she said, “they have found them too difficult, They want a God who will care for them, who will not demand that they struggle for enlightenment, but who will accept them just as they are, with all their sins, and take away their sins with repentance. It is not so, it will never be so, but perhaps it is the only way the unenlightened can bear to think of their Gods.”

Lancelot smiled bitterly. “Perhaps a religion which demands that every man must work thorough lifetime after lifetime for his own salvation is too much for mankind. They want not to wait for God’s justice, but to see it now. And that is the lure which this new breed of priests has promised them.”
