Many strange monsters

This has to be my favourite quote on the book of Revelation, or rather the interpretation of Revelation:

… though St. John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creature so wild as one of his own commentators.

Who could have said this but G. K. Chesterton (in Orthodoxy), who, as a rhetorician, is impossible to beat.
