Not to Oppose is to Approve

Pope St. Felix III

"Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them."
St. Thomas Aquinas

"If the faith is in imminent peril, prelates ought to be accused by their subjects, even in public."

Bump,

These quotes give me the courage to announce to the lurkers here that we will no longer be attending the neo-sspx masses, and it's not just due to the fact that Fr. T. Cannot be considered a trustworthy parish priest.
 
“To not resist error is to approve it; and the truth is oppressed when it is defended softly” (attributed to Pope Innocent III).

Translated and taken from the book "Face aux Propositions Romaines" (Faced with Roman Proposals) page 36, by the Capuchin of Morgon, France.

As an FYI, Pope Felix III (died 492) predated Pope Innocent III (died 1216)

So pope Felix would be attributed the original quote.
