St. Basil, Letter 224: “They have written, as they have, what is all— or nearly all— for I do not wish to exaggerate— lies, in the endeavor to persuade men rather than God, and to please men rather than God, with Whom nothing is more precious than truth.”

To those who knowingly communicate with those who insult and dishonor the venerable images, anathema! To those who say it was someone other than Christ our God who rescued us from idols, anathema! To those who dare to say that the Catholic Church ever accepted idols, anathema!”
