Would This Be What B16 Means About a Dictatorship of Relativism?

Bennett points out on his show this morning: There really is no truth in the Wright-Obama world is there?

From Bill Moyers’s interview with Wright:

It went down very simply. He’s a politician, I’m a pastor. We speak to two different audiences. And he says what he has to say as a politician. I say what I have to say as a pastor. But they’re two different worlds.

I do what I do. He does what politicians do. So that what happened in Philadelphia where he had to respond to the sound bytes, he responded as a politician.

Funny how Bush and Pope Benedict managed to speak the same language, appear to live in the same world, with the same standards, the same final Judge.

This, my friends (!), is why elections matter. If Wright reflects Obama, do you want a man with this moral compass as president of the United States? I don’t think you’d find quite the same “His Truth Is Marching On,” welcoming ceremony for Benedict in an Obama administration that we saw last week. Where the president of the United States — a politician — said:

In a world where some treat life as something to be debased and discarded, we need your message that all human life is sacred, and that “each of us is willed, each of us is loved” — — and your message that “each of us is willed, each of us is loved, and each of us is necessary.”

In a world where some no longer believe that we can distinguish between simple right and wrong, we need your message to reject this “dictatorship of relativism,” and embrace a culture of justice and truth.
