There are undoubtedly those who have converted to Christianity because they seek an excitement that mere pleasure can no longer supply. Think of Grahan Greene, who used the sense of sin he acquired through converting to Catholicism as an aphrodisiac. Morality has hardly made us better people; but it has certainly enriched our vices.

Among those who have once been Christians, pleasure can be intense only if it is mixed with the sensation of acting immorally.'
