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.

The Pervasiveness of Wikiality

Considering the confusion We have encountered regarding Our own cause for canonization (as We described here) and its connection to Wikipedia, We thought it fitting to have Stephen Colbert, arguably the greatest and truthiest prophetic voice in the media today, remind us all of the dangers associated with this vehicle of information. Or, is it misinformation?

On the other hand, We wish that the subjectivism of modern philosophy (as advanced by men such as Rene Descartes and George Berkeley) and the relativism of modern modes of thought would seem just as ridiculous and laughable to both the common man and the academy as Monsieur Colbert's proposal to refashion reality.

I respectfully suggest that George ("Bishop") Berkeley was no subjectivist. In his defence, I point out that for Berkeley, objectivity was grounded in the act of being perceived by God. This seems to me to put objectivity where it belongs!
