Mh - The Dictatorship of Relativism

Cardinal Ratzinger's words in the pre-conclave homily this morning, via CNN:
"Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism," Ratzinger said during the homily.

"Whereas relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and 'swept along by every wind of teaching,' looks like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards," he continued. "We are moving toward a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as for certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires."

  1. HM,
    Check the Michael Novak piece in NWO... I'm sure you will. He lends a little assistance to the new Pope in defining his stance against relativism.

    Of course, I made a little post at BaddaBlog. ;)

    Some say Benedict will be a short-term pope, that he is a transition pope... but if he's willing to take a stand against relativism (and if he worries so many nay-sayers) then I'm willing to consider the future.

    What else than a German Catholic Pope to erase the stain that the Nazis and the Communists brought to the world? I guess we can now say, "Not only is it morning in America, but it's morning in the Catholic Church."

    That is if I read all this correctly!
