CWN Editor's Note: In a new biography, published this week in Germany, Pope-emeritus Benedict XVI warns against a “worldwide dictatorship of seemingly humanist ideologies,” in which anyone guilty of “resisting this creed is punished by social excommunication.” The former Pope says that critics who have charged him with opposing Pope Francis are engaged in “malicious distortion of the truth.” The biography, by Peter Seewald, will be published in English in two-volumes, with the first due in November.
