Sin of the Century

Is it acceptable to tell a "white lie" to avoid hurting another person's feelings? In other words is situational ethics acceptable behavior?
by Daniel E. Mayne, Sr., M.A. | Source:

In 1946 Pope Pius XII visited the United States and addressed The United States Catechetical Congress held in Boston, with these words: “The sin of the century is the loss of the sense of sin.” Ten years later Joseph Fletcher a leading academic involved in the topics of abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, eugenics, and cloning came up with the idea of situational ethics, in which one's personal gain dictates morality. This is completely against Christian morality, which seeks to uphold God and the common good instead. The video below equips you with Catechism and Biblical passages, and quotes from Saint Augustine to form your Catholic conscience on a God centered morality.
