Bravo. But that was easy. Arbitrariness is not difficult to expose when the lights of logic and justice are shone upon it. But standing publicly behind Catholic truth and discipline; well, this is not so easy to do because to act as a soldier of Christ requires wisdom, fortitude, understanding, knowledge, counsel, piety, fear of the Lord--commodities earned by denial of self and unflinching public witness to the truth. It is long past time to witness to full truth in the world, but not be of it.
