The Painted Veil

A flick worth a look. From a Somerset Maugham novel. In which was this exchange:
MOTHER SUPERIOR: So tell me Mrs Fane, to which faith do you subscribe?

KITTY FANE: (Choke) Excuse me. We attend services...not religiously, ah, regularly. You could say I'm a member of the Church of England.

MOTHER SUPERIOR: Which is an inoffensive way of saying you don't quite believe in anything much.
...and as the "progressives" warm to their tasks, we seem to be not quite believing in less and less these days.
And even if our gospel is veiled...(2 Cor 4.3)
