We've got the bomb

"the Catholic faithful (and all the faithful everywhere) know that, if need be, out of the depths of Parnassus the oracle will return into the world:  the ex cathedra utterance of the Magisterium.  The Church has the bomb."

Sheldon Vanauken, "The English Channel:  between Canterbury and Rome," in The new Catholics:  contemporary converts tell their stories, ed. Dan O'Neill (New York, NY:  Crossroad, 1989), 129.  There is an immaturity about most of these essays, though not this one and "A bizarre conversion," by John C. Cort.
