Don’t You Impose Your Morality on Me! : The Integrated Catholic Life™


When teaching about virtues and the moral life, I often think of a discussion I had with a college friend.

He was taking an ethics class with a professor who promoted moral relativism – the notion that there is no objective moral truth, no right or wrong. According to a relativist, all truth claims are subjective, merely reflecting one’s own feelings, opinions, or desires. A relativist might say, “You can have ‘your truth’ and I can have ‘my truth,’ but there is no ‘the truth’ to which we are all accountable.”
