Religious Freedom is the right to practice one’s faith without coercion or fear, without obstacle or opposition.  Religious freedom is a right granted by God, to all human beings. It has its origin in human dignity: we’re all created for the transcendent, and by nature we’re attracted to it and desire it.  We’re made to seek truth, especially religious truth. In this way, too, Religious Freedom implies duties. The Church teaches that as we encounter truth, we are bound to adhere to it, and to order our lives in accord with its demands.  As faithful citizens, Religious Freedom frees us to be fully alive in our faith as disciples of the Lord Jesus, in service to our fellow citizens and the common good.”
