Quote of the day: Pope John Paul II

"There exist acts which per se and in themselves, independently of circumstances, are always seriously wrong by reason of their object... whatever violates the integrity of the human person, such as mutilation, physical and mental torture and attempts to coerce the spirit; whatever is offensive to human dignity... all these and the like are a disgrace, and so long as they infect human civilization they contaminate those who inflict them more than those who suffer injustice, and they are a negation of the honour due to the Creator.'"— Pope John Paul II's Enclyclical, Veritatis Splendor
