Riots due to loss of moral direction

POPE BENEDICT has said that the recent riots in English cities were down to the country losing sight of the difference between right and wrong.

He said the country had succumbed to moral relativism and that Britons no longer recognised what constituted wrong behaviour.

Pope Benedict also implored the Government to deal with the aftermath of the riots by introducing policies that redistributed wealth and which also underpinned moral values.

He said “When policies do not presume or promote objective values, the resulting moral relativism tends instead to produce frustration, despair, selfishness and a disregard for the life and liberty of others. Policy-makers are therefore right to look urgently for ways to uphold excellence in education, promote social opportunity and economic mobility, and to examine ways to favour long-term employment.”
