When the existence of the Church is threatened, she is released from the commandments of morality – “Darkness At Noon” – Arthur Koestler

July 22nd, 2012 · No Comments · Philosophy, Politics, Religion

‘When the existence of the Church is threatened, she is released from the commandments of morality. With unity as the end, the use of every means is sanctified, even cunning, treachery, violence, simony, prison, death. For all order is for the sake of the community, and the individual must be sacrificed to the common good.’

DIETRICH VON NIEHEIM, BISHOP OF VERDEN: De schismate libri 111, A.D. 1411
