B-16 Hits the Nail on the Head

Both with regard to the post below AND with regard to the Homosex Marriage Amendment, the following is applicable:

"A particularly insidious obstacle to education today, which your own reports attest, is the marked presence in society of that relativism which, recognizing nothing as definitive, leaves as the ultimate criterion only the self with its desires. Within such a relativistic horizon an eclipse of the sublime goals of life occurs with a lowering of the standards of excellence, a timidity before the category of the good, and a relentless but senseless pursuit of novelty parading as the realization of freedom. "

Benedict XVI in a letter to the Bishops of Ontario, quoted in Domine, da mihi hanc aquam!
