Relativism is the most deceitful contemporary philosophy. Pope Benedict XVI commented: “Relativism, which considers all opinions true even if they are contradictory, is the greatest problem of our time.”

Relativism is the theory of no absolute truths — they are relative. This philosophy  is contradictory, because nothing is absolute is an absolute statement.  Relativists  do not concede on right and wrong, so they claim we cannot impose morality.

Relativism ignores Wisdom, the ability to discern among true, good, right, or lasting.  The Church presents truth we must seek with humility and perseverance.  Truth enlightens intelligence and shapes freedom to love God.
