How We Get One by Default
BY Frater Bovious
The curtailment and violation of religious freedom are in contrast with man’s dignity and his objective rights…It is therefore difficult, even from a “purely human” point of view, to accept a position that gives only atheism the right of citizenship in public and social life…
Redemptor hominus, JPII
The current excesses of the principle of separation of Church and State, wherein one’s religion is becoming restricted from the public square and relegated behind the closed doors of church and home (making of religion essentially a private hobby) have the de facto effect of raising atheism to the status of state religion, or at least state philosophy.
Just a little something to think about during Lent.
