Wow. interesting times when the Pope says something about moral absolutes that a large number of protestant populations are trying to ignore. Mainstream protestantism has largely become, according the the book Almost Christian, "The Church of Benign Whatever-ism". I'm not saying I'm going to jump the Tiber and become catholic, but it really is a sign of the times when Rome, once the hotbed of scandal, deceit, and corruption, is pointing out the spiritual corruption in the world around it. Sometimes I wonder what the German reformers would say if they saw the present climate of the world. "Tearing their garments" comes to mind. An interesting lesson in how God preserves His church from age to age, regardless of scandal and corruption.

["The Church of Benign Whatever-ism"]
Mostly Gnosti-cism packaged in warm and fuzzy New Age Rainbow wrapping paper; constituting occult doctrinal eggs laid by parasitic transhumanist WASPs inside the temporal Church body -- that hatch and then progressively eat the social caterpillar alive from within...

It is the essence of anti-Christ.
