MH - Origins of "The Dictatorship of Relativism"

Thanks to Roman Catholic Blog for picking up this piece from - an interview with Attilio Tamburrini, director of the Italian section of Aid To The Church in Need. Tamburrini cites John Paul II's quote: "The democratic system which loses sight of referenced values is transformed into a dictatorship" and shows how this forms the basis of Benedict XVI's condemnation of the "Dictatorship of Relativism." Tamburrini also provides stark examples of how this Dictatorship is put into effect: "It is a question of exaggerated attention to supposed values of the so-called minorities that are in detriment of the majority."

Remember this next time someone talks to you about "diversity" and the need for "inclusiveness" and "understanding" of "others." RCB says it's exhilarting to stumble on a quote that gives you a sharpened insight into something you already thought you understood pretty well, and I feel the same way when I find a post that does a superior job of describing thoughts I've had for some time.
