Vacuity: Have we reached rock bottom?

Picture the dialogue:

Roman Judea, circa A.D. 29:

"Master, is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for any cause?"
Our Lord Jesus Christ: "There's hunger in Judea, so I won't answer that."

Two thousand years of Church, of the highest intellectual and devotional and artistic achievements in the history of mankind, and all the Holy Roman Church can accomplish now is this utter vacuity? That moral judgments cannot be made "when there are people dying because of a lack of water and hunger"?

Hunger somewhere has always been the predicament of mankind -- this means moral judgments have always been and will always be inappropriate and that Our Lord Himself should never have delivered any (for context, first post here, full interview here).
