Questions, Questions

truthIn his encyclical last week PopeFrancis/Benedict XVI poses two questions that surely must be at the core of our understanding of the meaning of all human life: What is Truth? What is Faith? Or are they the same thing?

What is Truth?  - what we are told by the scientist?

What is Faith? - knowledge? superstition?

I'm sorry to hear that. You might have gotten different answers in a different context. But this set of questions came in context of prohibiting non-Catholics from having contraceptives or abortion even for medical reasons.

It's that sort of regulation, which gives 'meaning of life', 'Truth', etc a bad name.

HOwever those terms and concepts may be used at their best, too often they're used to keep poor women in pain, or make the woman die along with a malformed fetus.
