Papapalooza 1985

Altro che gioventu nazista, andando indietro di vent’anni e stato ripescato un discorso di Ratzinger piuttosto poco aperto verso la musica rock:

… Rock music seeks release through liberation from the personality and its responsibility … [it is] among the anarchic ideas of freedom which today [1985] predominate more openly in the West than in the East. But that is precisely why rock music is so completely antithetical to the Christian concept of redemption and freedom, indeed its exact opposite. Hence music of this type must be excluded from the Church on principle, and not merely for aesthetic reasons, or because of restorative crankiness or historical inflexibility.
