"I don't want to impose my beliefs on others."
And thus the Dictator of Relativism speaks as he has always spoken to seduce humanity into a false sense of freedom.
Pope Benedict XVI, Christ's personally chosen defender of the Truth is fighting back. He recognized this in his homily on April 18, 2005, "We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one's own ego and desires."
Through a down-to-earth, easily accessible Question-and-Answer format, Stefanick's book shows:
Why relativism inherently contradicts its own claims.
What makes it one of the worst ideas in the history of ideas.
How relativism has a direct influence on the morals and virtues of a nation.
Why relativism doesn't even work "in real life."
How relativism is counterproductive to the true practice of tolerance
Why religion which makes claims to absolute truth is finally more tolerant than relativism.
What Christianity has almost singlehandedly done to foster true tolerance in the world.
How all laws legislate morality
What the true meaning of "open-minded" means it's not what you think!
This title is a decent introduction to the problem of relativism. It would be a good pamphlet to hand to a beginner on the subject - brief and simple, and easy for a skeptic of realism to read.
