I guess we've come a long way since the days of the Council of Constance, whose fathers could boldly justify their treachery against Fr. John Huss by saying "that faith need not be kept with heretics."

Yeah, but we're just little plebes, not prelates in the Church.  And that was within the context of a discussion.  I'd call out a friend who was a heretic if it was relevant to the discussion.  I'm sure I have more times than I can remember.

Virtue and honour should apply to all men, clergy and laity alike. It's not dignified for prelates in the Church to commit treachery as they did with Huss. They don't get a free pass just because of their ecclesiastical position.

We've definitely come a long way since then.
