Words of wisdom from Steve Kuhl

St. Pius X is not impressed.
In response to someone who begged Pope Saint Pius X to go soft on the Modernists, he retorted:

"Kindness is for fools!

They want them to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses but they ought to be beaten with fists!

In a duel you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can!

You don’t wage war with charity. It is a struggle.

A duel.

If Our Lord were not terrible He would not have given an example in this, too.

See how He treated the Philistines, the sowers of error, the wolves in sheep's clothing, the traitors in the temple.

He scourged them with whips!"

  1. Do you know where this quote comes from? It seems odd to me since it pretty much directly contradicts what he taught in E Supremi 13, for example.

    Likewise, I find it odd that he compares the proper action to dueling, since his own Catechism says dueling is a sin (5th Commandment, questions 8,9, and 10) and the canon law he had compiled also forbade dueling with strict penalties.
