Those popes who bear the name, "Pius," are the greatest guardians of the Church against heresy. This blog is a watchdog for modernism in the Church. In reality, outside this blog, the members of the board temper their criticisms and opinions with prudence and charity so as to help souls in their journey towards Christ. But sometimes, for the sake of their own sanity, the authors of this blog just need to blow off some steam. The result is Totus Pius.

"Pontius Pilate Should Be the Patron 'Saint' of Modernism"

This is a quote from Fr John Corapi...who is the MAN. We enjoy his preaching as much as a chocolate-caramel treat. It really got us to thinking...

Pontius Pilate really SHOULD be the patron of modernism!

Why? Here goes:

What is truth?
A question often asked of modernists who use evasive agnosticism to avoid any discussion of absolutes. They deny that either an absolute truth can be known or that one exists at all. I wonder, could a claim that truth doesnt exist be true? Haha...

What would you have me to do?
His whole concept of leadership is one which is marked by an abandonment of what he knows to be good and deferring to the will of the people over whom he is ruling. The point of having leaders is that they know better than the masses how to achieve the common good...it is proper to leaders to lead, not just to enact the will of the masses. I am reminded of a recent disaster at Our Lady's university...

I find no cause in him...scourge him anyway
"I find no redeeming value in the play."
"I am committed to not stopping the play's performance."

Oh, there are more similarities to passion plays than we realize here....hahaha...

Pilate asked "What is Truth?" when Truth stood before him.

You guys know today is the anniversary of Pope St. Pius X's Syllabus of Errors? Right?

A disaster indeed.

Yes, this suggestion seems appropriate!

Right on target, though we use the word "saint" losely.

Jeffrey,

I am probably missing something obvious, but what do you mean?
