"Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism," [...]"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. A dictatorship of relativism is established that recognizes nothing definite and leaves only one's own ego and one's own desires as the final measure."--Josef Cardinal Ratzinger
Faster than a speeding senate committee, the Catholic Church elects a successor to Pope John Paul II.
To all my Catholic friends: Congratulations on the election of your new leader, Pope Benedict XVI, formerly Josef Cardinal Ratzinger, a German.
The new Pope even has a pre-existing fan club. Here’s a link to the fan club biography, but don’t try to get on the site today.
UPDATE: More on Benedict XVI; Wikipedia works quickly.
