POPE HITS OUT AT RADICAL SECULARISM

English: Pope Benedict XVI during general audition

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Benedict XVI says Roman Catholics in the U.S. need to understand the “grave threats” to their faith posed by radical secularism in the political and cultural arenas.

He addressed visiting U.S. bishops Thursday and warned that attempts are being made to erode their religious freedom.

Benedict did not explicitly mention it, but the bishops have complained their religious freedom is eroding in the face of growing acceptance of gay marriage and attempts to marginalize faith.

The pope said many bishops believe that new laws make it difficult for them to object to what they consider “intrinsically evil practices.”

The bishops have complained about President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul having private insurers pay for contraception, saying the religious exception for Catholics opposed to birth control is too narrow.

  1. If he is paying attention; he would know that the 1% are coming for him as well as us.

  2. Though we did not know that he read our blog, we are proud to upset the pope.
