Europe Needs to Return to Their Christian Roots

In what seems to be a theme of Pope Benedict XVI's papacy his holiness (should I use a capital here?) is encouraging Europe to rediscover their Christian roots.
The pope's hourlong speech, interrupted repeatedly with applause, explored a favorite topic of his 18-month-old pontificate: that personal faith should have a cultural impact, particularly in areas of the family, marriage, protection of human life and education.
When one hears a U.S. Catholic politician state his faith is private, that is the problem. Besides suffering from psychosis, our 'personal' faith does have an impact on culture which in turn forms public policy. Anyways, for more on this speech by Pope Benedict XVI click here.
