Faithful skeptic …

… On the Slow Decay of Things - The Catholic Thing. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The “Apology” argues in favor of skepticism, but – perhaps oddly to us – for Catholic ends.  If natural reason leads men into folly, then we have no alternative but to rely on divine revelation as preserved and taught by the authoritative Church.  The Huguenots haven’t a rational leg to stand on, should lay down their arms, and submit to the pope.
Faith is unaided is what led to the fall. Montaigne died while a Mass was being said for him.
