Pope Addresses Legal Experts On Secularism

AGI yesterday reported on an address by Pope Benedict XVI to the Union of Italian Catholic Law Experts. The Pope's topic was secularism. The Pope said: "We must demonstrate that without God man is lost and that the exclusion of religion from social life, in particular the marginalization of Christianity, ruins the foundations of human coexistence," that "before having a social and political nature it has a moral nature."
