Here is a link to Charlie Rose's interview of Fr. Lorenzo Albacete. (Thanks to Amy Welborn for the heads-up). Here is an excerpt that is relevant to our ongoing conversation about law and "moral anthropology":
LORENZO ALBACETE: [The cardinals] really realized that we are living in a moment in which once again what is at stake is what does it mean to be a human being?
CHARLIE ROSE: A human being or a Christian?
LORENZO ALBACETE: A human being, a human being. No, not a Christian.
CHARLIE ROSE: What does it mean to be human? What does it mean to be human today?
LORENZO ALBACETE: What does it mean to be human today. And then what is—what is the exact nature of our unity to transcendence and the mystery? All these things are up for grabs today.
