What he is talking about is Relativism.

Relativism is the philosophical position that all points of view are equally valid, and that all truth is left up to the individual to define. This means that all moral positions, all religious systems, all political movements, are truths that are relative to the individual. In other words, there are no right or wrong answers …to anything!

It’s easy to recognize relativism because most of its statements sound intellectual but they are simply ridiculous and self-refuting.

They go something like this:

“You can’t know anything for sure.”
“You shouldn’t judge.”
“Nobody’s right.”
“You can’t know anything.”
“What is true for you is not true for me.”

Now the easiest way to refute statements like these is to simply turn them back around.
You can’t know anything for sure.” -Are you sure of that? -Are you sure you can’t know anything for sure.

“You shouldn’t judge.” -Is that your judgment? -And if you shouldn’t judge, then why are you judging my judgment?

“Nobody’s right.” -Are you right? Are you right that nobody’s right? And if you are right then your wrong about nobody being right.

“You can’t know anything.” -Do you know that? Do you know that you can’t know anything?

“What is true for you is not true for me.” -Well, that’s true. And what is true for me is that you are wrong.

So, the next time you’re confronted with that relativity nonsense just turn it around question their logic and help them to realize that their point of view is just plain silly.
