In Installment number 34, the Laws of God, Father Benedict Groeschel again talks about the natural law. He talks about reading about an "ethics" committee doing something against the natural law:
"Some ethics committees loudly supported the idea of partial birth abortion. That is hypocrisy. That is a misuse of the term."
Fr. Groeschel goes on to talk about Pope John Paul II's encyclical, Veritatis Splendor encylical (the Splendor of the Truth):
"what the pope is ultimately saying is...that there are objective, solid, basic, moral truths that do not change. I have to say that God went out of his way to make that very clear..."
Fr. Groeschel ends with:
"Objective truth can defeat evil and in fact, it is ultimately the only thing that can defeat evil. It is the truth of God."
