The Vatican vs. Gertrude Stein (Part VIII)

THE VATICAN: Hence springs that ridiculous proposition of the Modernists -- that every religion, according to the different aspect under which it is viewed, must be considered as both natural and supernatural. Hence it is that they make consciousness and revelation synonymous. Hence the law, according to which religious consciousness is given as the universal rule, to be put on an equal footing with revelation, and to which all must submit, even the supreme authority of the Church, whether in its teaching capacity, or in that of legislator in the province of sacred liturgy or discipline.

GERTRUDE STEIN: There is no pope.
