It all started with a clickbait headline in my Facebook news feed. Sandro Magister, a Vatican expert writing in Rome, declared, For the First Time, Francis Contradicts Benedict. Magister reported, in the tabloid fashion typical of Italian journalism:
"Love men, slay error; without pride be bold in the truth, without cruelty fight for the truth."
~ Augustine of Hippo, prescribing sincerest love for the erring with keen repugnance for the error to which they cling, anticipating the very definition of true civic tolerance, as detailed in the article Religious Toleration.
