[S]ome laws actually restrict freedom by shrinking the sacred space we need to live out our commitments to an authority higher than the state...
- Edward A. Morse, Professor of Law



Are you waiting until the arrest you? - Father John Hollowell

Religious freedom is important not only in its own right but is also central to other human goods: it correlates with civil liberties, political liberties, press freedom, longevity of democracy, low levels of militarization and conflict, more physicians, and lower infant mortality...
Why Religious Freedom Must be a Top Priority - Paul Marshall, Hudson Institute



Go to the barricades for religious liberty: Christians are the most persecuted creed worldwide - Cardinal Timothy Dolan



In today’s world, religious freedom is more often affirmed than put into practice...It is often threatened, and not infrequently violated. The serious outrages against this fundamental right are a source of serious concern, and need to be confronted at the global level. Defending religious liberty and making it available for everyone...is everyone’s responsibility... Pope Francis

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights... - Declaration of Independence

Archbishop Kurtz discusses Religious Freedom

"Government, even at its best, can never be more than an auxiliary in the development of character...We desperately need to recover a sense of the fundamental purpose of education, which is to engage in the architecture of souls.  When a self-governing society ignores this responsibility, it does so at its peril" (William J. Bennett, Quantifying America's Decline, 1993).



"We must stand up for Religious Freedom"
"Catholicism...It's your story." (Fr. Barron)
