a couple hundred years ago, it was completely normal for 13 year old girls to be married and have children. Today thats considered pedophilia.

He's condemning it, by saying the world has become more accepting of it and they, the Church, can no longer be silent while the world continues to get worse.
I'm not remotely Catholic and I can understand what he's talking about.

“It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than' and a ‘worse than'. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”
