Quote of the day


The similarity shared by outwardly diverse autocephalous churchlets can serve as a warning to disaffected Catholics of all stripes. There must be some deep spiritual law involved: whenever schismatics set out to reject the husk of Christianity and save the kernel, the kernel they display exactly mirrors the tastes and prejudices of their own age; it might be a self-parody of what is most superficial and transient in their own experience. Even when their initial complaints are just, in the act of separation some kind of blindness supervenes. A mystery, but an eerily consistent one. Come to think of it, the Gadarene demon pleaded to be cast into pigs -- and when the wish was granted? Self-destruction. - Diogenes
