I just read, in an article about Jeb Bush, that he said 'Conservatives' need to talk about their belief in absolute truth. Is that shared by 'Conservatives'?

It was part of a CNN report and I can't find the exact one. He is quoted many places saying what he likes about the religion he converted to, Roman Catholicism, is that it maintains absolute truths.

Isn't 'truth' a human-created word and, thus, a priori, relative?

Maybe he likes the fact that it isn't wishy-washy in an attempt to be politically correct. Many Protestant churches, on the other hand, are merely liberal political front organizations. If not, would they apply their "pro-choice" beliefs to Mary when she was carrying Jesus?

How can we justify the idea of absolute when it depends on definitions and discussions made of subjective, relative words?
