I know you’re probably already familiar with Hilaire Belloc. But since people are starting to talk about elections, how awesome would it be to see something like this?
“From 1906 to 1910 [Belloc] was a Liberal Party Member of Parliament for Salford South, but swiftly became disillusioned with party politics. During one campaign speech he was asked by a heckler if he was a ‘papist.’ Retrieving his rosary from his pocket he responded, ‘Sir, so far as possible I hear Mass each day and I go to my knees and tell these beads each night. If that offends you, then I pray God may spare me the indignity of representing you in Parliament.’ The crowd cheered and Belloc won the election.”
