Moral Relativism Makes Me Relatively Sick
Posted on October 12, 2011 by Ryan Kantor

Metaethical Moral Relativism: The truth or falsity of moral judgements, or their justification, is not absolute or universal, but is relative to the traditions, convictions, or practices of a group of persons.

Simply put, for those who subscribe to this philosophy, there is no real right or wrong. Groups of people can decide what is moral and what is not, and whatever they decide to be morally acceptable, is by rule correct. It argues that there are no real principles to be upheld, no faith to hold dear, just a lot of tolerance to dole out.
