Religious Liberty

In the wake of aggressive attacks against the religious freedoms of, primarily Catholics, by our government, Cardinal Timothy Dolan wrote the following to every bishop in our country…

“In the United States, religious liberty does not depend on the benevolence of who is regulating us. It is our “first freedom” and respect for it must be broad and inclusive—not narrow and exclusive. Catholics and other people of faith and good will are not second class citizens. And it is not for the government to decide which of our ministries is “religious enough” to warrant religious freedom protection.”
