From the desk of The Grand Inquisitor:
“It is quite unlawful to demand, defend, or to grant unconditional freedom of thought, or speech, of writing or worship, as if these were so many rights given by nature to man.” Pope Leo XIII, born 2 March 1810.
I wonder what Rick Santorum would say about this reprehensible decree. Or Thomas Paine. Or Thomas Jefferson.

In reply to The Grand Inquisitors of the world:
“I dislike censorship. Like an appendix it is useless when inert and dangerous when active.” – Maurice Edelman, British politician, born 2 March 1911.
