Overview

In C. S. Lewis's novel That Hideous Strength there is a scene where the non-religious protagonist, Mark, is instructed as "part of an exercise" to trample an image of a large crucifix. Because Mark is not a Christian, he is puzzled as to why he should bother with this exercise and not just leave this silly superstition alone. The professor who is leading the exercise tells Mark, "Of course it is a superstition: but it is that particular superstition which has pressed upon our society for many centuries. . . . An explicit action in the reverse direction is therefore a necessary step towards complete objectivity" (ch. 15). In other words, if religion is to be purged from society it cannot simply be ignored; it has to be ridiculed.
