Alabama Catholics for pluralism

Preacher angers Alabama students at the University of Alabama; Catholic students appeal to pluralism to defend their beliefs:

Lauren Coles, a freshman accounting major who is Catholic [said, about the visiting Pentecostal preacher,] "He has no idea what he is talking about. He has no right to tell me I'm going to hell."

Jay Rosenberger, a freshman majoring in management information systems and also a Catholic student, was angered by Morris' "insensitive" teachings.

"I really don't like his idea that I'm going to hell because I'm from a specific group," he said. "It didn't surprise me [hearing the preacher say that], but to hear it right to my face hurts a little bit."

Does Cardinal Ratzinger know what's going on with his Bible-Belt flock?
