This is a strong and definite judgment because the world has been arrogant in going its own way. We are reaping the consequences of our moral degradation, as well as the environmental damage that we have caused. . . . We are in serious moral trouble because every type of lifestyle is now regarded as legitimate. . . .

I once asked Archbishop [Chaput] why he thought the Catholic Church had so rapidly declined in North America and was surprised (and again instructed) by his answer.
