H.H. Pius VI Denounces the Clever Strategy With Which Innovators of all Times Introduce Error and Heresy: Ambiguity

It is the current weapon of modernist heresy

“They knew the capacity of innovators in the art of deception. In order not to shock the ears of Catholics, the innovators sought to hide the subtleties (errors) of their tortuous maneuvers by the use of seemingly innocuous words (ambiguities) such as would allow them to insinuate error into souls in the most gentle manner. Once the truth had been compromised, they could, by means of slight changes or additions in phraseology, distort the confession of the faith (the doctrine) that is necessary for our salvation, and lead the faithful by subtle errors to their eternal damnation…

In order to expose such snares, something which becomes necessary with a certain frequency in every century, no other method is required than the following: Whenever it becomes necessary to expose statements that disguise some suspected error or danger under the veil of ambiguity, one must denounce the perverse meaning under which the error opposed to Catholic truth is camouflaged.”
