“Catholics and Fundamentalists would regard it as an outrage to be coupled together, and I have the tenderest regard for their feelings. Both believe in eternal torment, a blood-atonement, and so on. Both boast that they surrender not a tithe of ancient Christian doctrine at the bidding of modern culture. Yet there is a material difference. Catholic literature is generally written by men with a far more complete and lengthy education, and is therefore far more dishonest…..Not dishonesty, but ignorance, is the outstanding characteristic of Fundamentalist literature…”
