Freedom of religion is considered by many people and most of the nations to be a fundamental human right.   As the Catholic Church in the United States begins a Fortnight for Freedom to strengthen Catholics’ resolve to defend religious freedom for all, it’s good to remember that, from the Founding, the Catholic embrace of the First Amendment’s guarantee of the “free exercise of religion” has been unhesitating — and it has been principled. of the Catholic Church’s Declaration on Religious Freedom, issued by the Second Vatican Council.

    The open letter comes after a city in Texas was forced to walk back parts of their shelter-in-place order because it infringed on religious liberty rights. It includes practical suggestions on how.

Religious Liberty & Vatican II. The Catholic Church, as we have already said, is a perfect society and has as its foundation the truth of Faith infallibly revealed by God. Accordingly, a Catholic may not defend freedom of religious worship to the extent of denying that a Catholic government has the right, absolutely speaking.

But it helped to shape the popular image of the Catholic Church, through the Inquisition, as the historic enemy of true religion, the subverter of political liberty, and the natural enemy of anyone who loved freedom. It painted a picture of the Inquisition as the power behind every Catholic throne.

Freedom is the power to act or not to act, and so to perform deliberate acts of one's own. Freedom attains perfection in its acts when directed toward God, the sovereign Good. Freedom characterizes properly human acts.

Americans, regardless of creed, share the common ground of religious liberty. But differences in religions and institutional structures are instructive. In the 19th Century, Alexis de Tocqueville commented on the relationship between Protestants and Catholics in his book, Democracy in America.

The true history of the Roman Catholic Church has been hidden away from the eyes of the masses, through the re-writing of the history books, so that they cannot see the truth about the antichrist church, otherwise known as Babylon, the Mother of Harlots.

WCF The visible church, which is also catholic or universal under the gospel (not confined to one nation, as before under the law), consists of all those throughout the world that profess the true religion; and of their children: and is the kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, the house and family of God, out of which there is no ordinary possibility of salvation.

Speaking of the great progress the Catholic Church had made in the United States, he attributed it to the "civil liberty we enjoy in our enlightened republic." Indeed, he made a bolder claim, namely that "in the genial atmosphere of liberty [the Church] blossoms like a rose."1.
