Please listen to Fr. Joshua Curtis, FSSP, my priest, on the subject of servile obedience, which is obedience that is unhinged from prudence and right reason. He recounted authentic history and talked about the gravity of following illicit orders from a superior. A chain of command governed my duties as a patrol officer, and I can say that I was never directed to carry out an immoral order. Two supervisors were retired SFPD, and the director was a former police chief. Curtis gave the speech in January 2021. He referred to the pope crisis, and he addressed the crisis facing all Americans, not just Catholics. Curtis also talked about people placed in the position of teacher in a famous experiment. At the time of the speech, Curtis was just under 40.
