One of the many common statements made about our new Pope in his role as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the faith is this bit of boilerplate "enforcer of the church’s doctrinal purity." This is said as if this statement itself is a condemnation. Why is it that liberals never describe the EPA as the "enforcer of environmental purity?" That they will fight to reduce some contaminate to a 12 parts per million but rail at the though of uncontaminated and pure doctrine. Why is purity important in your drinking water and not also in your doctrine? If knowing the truth so that you may prepare to live with God forever is important, then there should be an equal fight to retain doctrinal purity with no contaminates. "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"
Pope Benedict XVI nailed it when he discussed the "Dictatorship of relativism." Progressives want relativism so that they may first say their belief has equal footing to any other belief. Though relatively clean water they wouldn’t accept. Give me both clean water and clean doctrine so that when we drink at the wells of Holy Mother Church that we won’t be slowly poisoned. I am all for zero parts per million of heresy in our doctrine.
