second interview with the same (atheist) journalist, the Pope certainly seems to repeat the same error:
"Proselytism is solemn nonsense, it makes no sense. We need to get to know each other, listen to each other and improve our knowledge of the world around us. Sometimes after a meeting I want to arrange another one because new ideas are born and I discover new needs. This is important: to get to know people, listen, expand the circle of ideas. The world is crisscrossed by roads that come closer together and move apart, but the important thing is that they lead towards the Good."
"Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is Good.""And I repeat it here. Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place."
To say this is not only to place individual conscience over Divine Revelation, it is to espouse moral relativism. Either that or the Pope is a poor communicator.
These must be "interesting" times in which to be a conservative Roman Catholic.
