Synod 2015
"“Non possumus!” I will not accept an obfuscated speech nor a skilfully masked back door to a profanation of the Sacrament of Marriage and Eucharist. Likewise, I will not accept a mockery of the Sixth Commandment of God. I prefer to be ridiculed and persecuted rather than to accept ambiguous texts and insincere methods. I prefer the crystalline “image of Christ the Truth, rather than the image of the fox ornamented with gemstones” (Saint Irenaeus), for “I know whom I have believed”, “Scio, Cui credidi!” (2 Tim 1: 12). (Bishop Athanasius Schneider on Synod 2015)

Even the Left Recognizes Dissembling

Will the Real Sonia Sotomayor Please Stand Up? » The Foundry

Shared via AddThis

By now probably everyone has seen this video, but it bears remembering. This was her in a relaxed setting with her contemporary peers - a setting when one's true feelings and beliefs have a way of coming to the surface. This is the real Sonia Sotomayor, and her dissembling before the Senate Judiciary Committee is so obvious and blatant that even her former supporters are surprised.

The words of liberal Georgetown law professor and Critical Legal Studies cofounder Mike Seidman (in the linked piece above) are especially worth remembering: “I was completely disgusted by Judge Sotomayor’s testimony today. If she was not perjuring herself, she is intellectually unqualified to be on the Supreme Court. If she was perjuring herself, she is morally unqualified.”
