Cardinal Martini - "Pope of the Liberal Catholics"

Cardinal Me artini of Milan passed away last week.  Many referred to him as the "Pope of liberal Catholics."  He was for abortion, same sex marriage, condoms in Africa, etc.  In his last interview before his passing, the Cardinal famously noted that the Church is 200 years behind the times.  William Doino on First Things blog has a lovely response:

"Cardinal Martini was vastly underestimating the situation. The Church is not 200 years out of date—it is 2,000 years out of date, and will remain so, for the eternal truths of Jesus Christ are timeless and not subject to the trends of any particular age, however “forward” it thinks it is."
