Churchly quotations

And then the Roman Catholic church has the gall to turn around and ask us to be nice and respectful!

If, therefore, the Catholic Church also claims the right of dogmatic intolerance with regard to her teachings, it is unjust to reproach her for exercising this right…She regards dogmatic intolerance not alone as her contestable right, but also as a sacred duty…According to Romans 8:11, the secular authorities have the right to punish, especially grave crimes with death; consequently, ‘heretics may be not only excommunicated, but also justly put to death.’

[The Catholic Encyclopedia, 1911 Edition, Vol. 14, pp.776,768]
