A common tactic dissolved

I think one of the most common "arguments" we're going to get here is dismissal by relativism. For example:
  • "You can't impose your morals on others"
  • "That is what you believe, but other beliefs are just as valid"
  • "You shouldn't legislate your morality"
  • "We have to be tolerant of other's beliefs"
Patrick Madrid recently gave a talk on this subject and offers some great advice on how to break this apart and help those who hold this self-contradictory view see the truth.

About the Course

All Catholics are called to evangelize, share our Faith – but how? What is the gospel message, and how do we explain it to anyone? What are we supposed to say?

The word "gospel" means "good news." What is the good news of the gospel according to the Catholic Church? Did you know that it is not the same as the Protestant gospel message, that there are key – and profound – differences? That the Protestant message is incomplete – and the Catholic message is the real message, based on the fullness of 2000 years of reflection on the meaning of what Christ has actually done, and continues to do, for us?
