Pope's "moral order"

Mr George W. Bush, the President of the United States of America, and thereby the most powerful person on earth, said to the Pope, "Your Holiness, that was an awesome speech."

What were his awesome words? He said that the quest of the United States for freedom was linked to a moral order based on the domination of God, the Creator.

This God of his condones slavery. This church of his supported slavery for centuries. Yet world leaders listen and laud him, and the world’s media report his words about a moral order without comment. And the moral philosophers in universities throughout the world respond with – silence.

Pope Benedict XVl, originally Joseph Ratzinger, was head of the Doctrine of the Faith department of the Roman Catholic Church for over 20 years.
