Pope slams the dogma of agnosticism

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Here's one for irony fans – at a ceremony consecrating several new Catholic bishops on 6 January, Pope Benedict XVI hailed his bishops as the great contemporary opponents of prevailing wisdom, and challenged the close-minded dogmatism of today's dominant mindset: agnosticism:
"Anyone who lives and proclaims the faith of the Church is on many points out of step with the prevalent way of thinking, even in our own day. Today’s regnant agnosticism has its own dogmas and is extremely intolerant regarding anything that would question it and the criteria it employs. Therefore the courage to contradict the prevailing mindset is particularly urgent for a Bishop today".
