Good v. Evil

....This article from the New York Times I found really interesting. I'd meant to blog something about the late Pope ever since he passed away, and not quite known what to say.

The Doctor asked me whether or not the world would be a better place without the Catholic Church. He thinks yes, I don't want to think yes and hope it isn't true. I'm not a Christian, although I do believe in some kind of benevolent force for good in the universe. I want to be able to stick up for the good the Pope did - as in this article - without sanctioning his less good choices. Trouble is I can't work out if that's possible - does the good in a persons life cancel out the bad? Or vice versa?
