Layin’ Down the Law

Posted by Adam Graham on March 14, 2007

The Pope has issued an important edict:

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI yesterday set out “nonnegotiable values” as he urged Catholic lawmakers to oppose laws favoring divorce, abortion, homosexual “marriage” and euthanasia.

In a long-awaited text, the pope exhorted “Catholic politicians and legislators … to introduce and support laws inspired by values grounded in human nature.”

The sad thing about this is that the Pope will be mostly ignored. Those who need this exhortation won’t pay any heed, and those who will pay attention didn’t need it in the first place. Thus it is with our current age. Still, I wish Protestant leaders would have a bit more of this willingness to at least stand up for what’s right.
