Questions Covered: 

13:41 – My mother-in-law is agnostic. When I try to talk to her about the Catholic Church, she says things like, “All religions promote peace,” as if there are no differences among the different faiths. Is this relativism? How can I respond? 
20:37 – When the president uses relativism, how should faithful Catholics respond? Is it enough to support a president because they are pro-life, even though they use relativism in other areas?
