Not that I’m one for hanging on to every word the Pope says, the fact that he is saying these things now is downright hair-raising.

“Not that Im one for hanging on to every word the Pope says, the fact that he is saying these things now is downright hair-raising.”
You are so correct....but remember, we know that, when we put our trust in the Savior, we are TRULY set free...and the Pope has been equally illustrious on that point as well!!!
I will also add that prayer groups made up of committed and very holy people are confirming what the Pope has stated in that message.
Be prepared....spiritually and physically.

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.
