CS Lewis on the Moral Gospel

I have been rereading The Great Divorce and came upon this passage about the moral man and his need to claim a sense of justice for his good work and a need to look down upon those who did not achieve moral success.
'That may do very well for you, I daresay. If they choose to let in a bloody murderer all because he makes a poor mouth at the last moment, that's their look out. But I don't see myself going in the same boat as you, see? Why should I? I don't want charity. I'm a decent man and if I had my rights I'd have been here long ago and you can tell them I said so.' ~ CS Lewis, Great Divorce
