When I discuss politics with my friends, I often support religious liberty, but with a caveat. I explain that I support a Catholic society (and state) as the ideal. I also then note that I'm not about to condemn centuries of my coreligionists--including hundreds of saints and popes--who engaged in religious persecution. Such policies are clearly not good for American society today, but I'm not going to say they were wrong then.

As I said before, I understand and sympathise where you're coming from.

But if and when you think about these issues more deeply, you'll hopefully realise the conundrum you're in just because you want to be intellectually faithful to a Church and a weltanschauung that only exists in history books and old theology manuals.

No, I want to be intellectually faithful to my Church--a real, historical community which at times has delegated to the state authority to enforce its teachings. I'm not about to ignore this fact, nor am I about to admit that we Catholics were wrong on so serious a matter.

Of course you're not "about to admit it," else your faith would probably crumble.

It's a tough spot you're in, a spot that will only get tougher as time goes by. I don't envy your position.
May I ask what position have you adopted "accepted" Vetus?
