We are all relativists now

8 06 2007

George Pell, in the SMH:

To be a disciple of Christ means accepting discipline because the Catholic church has never followed today’s fashionable notion of the primacy of conscience, which is, of course secular relativism with a religious face.

If “relativism” means taking a considered and reasoned approach to an important issue, rather than blindly following religious dogma, then call me a proud relativist!
