Addressing an open air Mass in Glasgow on Thursday, Pope Benedict warned against a "dictatorship of relativism" and urged Catholics to oppose attempts to "exclude religious belief from public discourse, to privatize it or even to paint it as a threat to equality and liberty." He stressed the importance of ecumenical cooperation and urged bishops, priests and young people to lead holy lives.
