QotD for 14 Sep., 2008

Likewise, in the particularly contentious ranks of theologically minded Catholics, or perhaps in the polemic-weary ranks of mainline Protestantism, there are those who have surrendered the label of orthodoxy to conservatives, either because they no longer have the energy to protest or because they have concluded that the whole idea of orthodoxy — correct doctrine or right belief — is too encrusted with questionable notions to be worth defending. --- Peter Steinfels, The Audacity of Claiming the Last Word on This Word, the New York Times, 13 Sep., 2008
