Don't forget Fr. Adrian Fortescue:
Quote:Centralization grows and goes madder every century. Even at Trent they hardly foresaw this kind of thing. Does it really mean that one cannot be a member of the Church of Christ without being, as we are, absolutely at the mercy of an Italian Lunatic?

Fortescue was a Modernist.  When you find yourself relying on Modernists like Fortescue to put your case, you have already lost the debate.

Your comments come as a shock, Mr. Lane! Mind explaining yourself further?


The quote from Fortescue concerns the anti-Modernist oath.  He is saying that he does not wish to take it, and is lamenting that the others whom he knows to agree with him are likely to take it anyway.  His reference to true submission to the pope as being "absolutely at the mercy of an Italian Lunatic" illustrates his mentality pretty well.
