Habemus papam

A recent quote from Cardinal Ratzinger which I found interesting, "[Relativism] is letting oneself be 'swept along by every wind of teaching.' (It) looks like the only attitude (acceptable) to today's standards. We are moving towards 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." His comments are an encouraging sign.

The left will read this as an inflexibility, unfortunately. But his comments are much more complex than that. Ultimately his remarks can be applied to a lot of issues in society.
