Tertullian said that the first reaction to truth is hatred.  Is that what you're thinking of?

The 2nd reaction to Truth is for Fisheaters posters to try to make a loophole around it like Baptism of Desire to undermine EENS.

Record for fastest ridiculous derailing of a thread to EENS?

(And to address that ... I'm pretty sure it wasn't fishies who came up with the idea of baptism of desire but rather, um, the Church.)

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.

I remember hearing that St. Thomas Aquinas made this statement. Any other ideas?
