Are You an Unconscious Modernist?

We are cursed from Original Sin and one of the effects is we are stupid compared to before. Our minds have been dimmed, and somehow the Devil makes us believe we are smart enough to take him on in that arena. Horse Feathers.

There is a "payday" coming, and those responsible for losing all of these souls will get what they deserve. What we should be doing is explaining to folks what Catholic is in it's simplest terms, like in the Baltimore Catechism, and admonishing them to stay away from all other stuff. Trying to teach what is an is not modernism is insane. To Scriptorium's point judge your self by what is Catholic not by if infected by modernisn. Christ said His yoke is light. A yoke is custom made for two oxen. Christ knew this he made them and  one is extant, today. He also is telling us He is the othe Ox. One ox can not do it.

I would agree, except the Church has always allowed for legitmate theological discussion, reason and a deeper understanding and development of our faith is a crucial part of the activity of the Church, this is upheld most clearly by the creation of 'Doctors of the Church' and the part theologians have had to play in the church since its very creation vis a vis The Church fathers and ecumenical councils of the Church. The same goes with judging and condemning heresy or purging onself of heretical thought.
