The freedom to take a stand

Is there more to the religious freedom we enjoy in this country than merely the freedom to shut up?
It is not true that there is opposition between being a good Catholic and serving civil society faithfully. In the same way there is no reason why the Church and the State should clash when they proceed with the lawful exercise of their respective authorities, in fulfillment of the mission God has entrusted to them.

Those who affirm the contrary are liars, yes, liars! They are the same people who honour a false liberty, and ask us Catholics “to do them the favour” of going back to the catacombs.
-St. Josemaría Escrivá, #301 from The Furrow
