Everyone must understand that such ravings and others like them, concealed in many deceitful disguises, cause greater ruin to public calm the longer their impious originators are unrestrained. They cause a serious loss of souls redeemed by Christ’s blood wherever their teaching spreads, like a cancer, it forces its way into public academies, into the houses of the great, into the palaces of kings, and even enters the sanctuary, shocking as it is to say so."
-Pope Pius VI, “Inscrutabile” (On The Problems Of The Pontificate)
Wise words from the Pontiff and I really miss the days when the Pope would actually call a group of people "accursed" who deserve it. Can't imagine that happening these days.
