To the contrary, we see all of the carnage that has been wrought by Protestantism and modern secular humanism as the only logical result of Scholasticism. That extends even today to the destruction of the Latin liturgy and the crisis we have seen in the Roman Catholic Church.

A quite unwarranted conclusion.

One could easily turn the tables around and accuse the East of intellectual sclerosis in its superstitious hatred of scholasticism and western thought.
