Pope Benedict XVI

“A dictatorship of relativism is being formed, one that recognizes nothing as definitive and that has as its measure only the self and its desires.”

– Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, shortly before becoming Pope Benedict XVI, explaining that rejecting the black-and-white moral absolutisms of Catholic orthodoxy is both a selfish and totalitarian infringement on the absolute right of the Catholic heirarchy to define truth and to dictate to everyone on the planet how to think and act.
