Francis/Tucho's "morality"?: "Kant..individuals to choose their own visions for morality..individual’s conscience acts as a personal 'lawmaker' for subjective morality..destroyed Aquinas..faith and reason..'[Kant’s] assumption has deeply influenced the minds of most religious educators'"


Immanuel Kant: The Forefather of the Dictatorship of Relativism

Immanuel Kant

Kant’s philosophy allows individuals to choose their own visions for morality, since moral truth (according to Kant) cannot be arrived at using theoretical reason. Each individual’s conscience acts as a personal "lawmaker" for subjective morality. Kant’s assertion destroyed Aquinas’ medieval synthesis of faith and reason. It also directly contradicted the Church’s understanding that moral norms are discovered in objective truth as found in the natural law, not the creations of an individual’s conscience. More than any other thinker, Kant is responsible for making morality a matter of subjective opinion not objective truth found.

 The consequences of this shift have been catastrophic. Catholic apologist. Peter Kreeft, notes:
[Kant’s] assumption has deeply influenced the minds of most religious educators (e.g., catechism writers and theology departments) today, who have turned their attention away from the plain "bare bones" of faith, the objective facts narrated in Scripture and summarized in the Apostles' Creed. They have divorced the faith from reason and married it to pop psychology, because they've bought into Kant's philosophy.
Kant’s philosophy has shaped contemporary society in numerous ways. The mindset that all religions are essentially the same and the idea that religion does not concern facts and objective truth are byproducts of Kantian thought. Any assertion that your faith is true — objectively true, true for everyone — is seen as arrogance. Increasing attacks on Christianity and expressions of Christian belief are symptomatic afflictions of the "Dictatorship of Relativism" for which Kant laid the groundwork. The moral vacuousness so rampant on university campuses and in society in general, also of Kantian design, has caused many to loose faith.
