The futility of moral comparisons

For the same reason that sinners cannot invalidate a divine office, saints cannot legitimize one; in other words, it does no good to debate about the superiority of a religion or its doctrine on the basis of the moral strength or weakness of that religion’s adherents. Even if it could be easily demonstrated that the believers of one faith were without doubt morally superior to those of another faith (a demonstration that is for numerous reasons impossible), it would not matter.
