I found this quotation from Thomas Traherne:

'O the wickedness of Ignorant Zealots! who contemn thy mercies and Despise the union the Beautifull union of my Nationall church! every way thou art provoked to Anger, by Open profaness and Spirituall wickedness. And by the Ignorance of both' (Select Meditations I.85).

I suspect that both sides in the current dispute would claim this sentiment as their own. The 'Ignorance of both'??
