To call good evil, as the pessimist does, is not so dangerous as to call evil good. In the former case, we are at least kept on our guard; in the latter, we are taken unawares. If the blind optimist lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Better that the supposed evil should prove to be good, than that the supposed good should prove to be evil. To ignore the Antichrist of whom she has been forewarned is for the Church to expose herself defenseless to his wiles, deceptions, and attacks.
