About the New Pope

So I am very much not catholic. In fact I have some very serious problems with the biblical standing of several catholic doctorines (not the least of which papal infalibility), however the new Pope, Benedict XVI sounds like he will be a cool leader. He has some fairly hardcore quotes that he has thrown down lately: “Having a clear faith, based on the creed of the church, is often labeled today as a fundamentalism. We are moving towards a dictatorship of relativism, which does not recognize anything as definitive and has as its highest value one’s own ego and one’s own desires.”
In a time and date where homosexual clergy are being openly ordained in several denominations, hearing stuff like this is refreshing. He has also taken strong stands against abortion and homosexuality. It sounds like he will be a fairly active Pope that can do a lot of good for a very old church that seems to still be in need of rejuvination.
