What is Truth?

Anybody who really wants to follow Truth and thinks that Truth ought to be followed and adhered to once known is never going to reject the Catholic Faith for the obvious reason that it's true.

Karl Keating on the August 26, 2003 program Catholic Answers Live Q & A Forum (40:21 to 40:32).

Arrogant? It would be, if the statement weren't true.

Most people would probably object to the word “never” more than the words “Catholic Faith.” This is to be expected in these relativistic times, when the only absolute value is that there are no absolute values. Substitute the word “Islam” or “Communism” and most people would find the statement equally offensive.

There are, however, those who would become incensed upon reading the word "Catholic," so maligned is it by our modern liberal press and entertainment industry (are they really two separate entities?) and the centuries of subtle and not-so-subtle anti-Catholicism in Northern Europe and North America since the Reformation.
