Bishop Sanborn responds to the "rupture theology" article

What about the teaching that the right to religious freedom can be exercised in private and in public?  Again the right is correlative to duty as noted below by the traditional moral teaching:

Quote:The Natural Law commands each individual to render internal and external worship to God...The obligation of divine worship does not only bind man as an individual; it binds him especially as a social being.  Religion is not confined to the hidden recesses of the soul or the privacy of one's room. It bears a social character and obligation. (Fr. Thomas J. Higgins, S.J., Man as Man: The Science and Art of Ethics, TAN Publishers, 1958, 1992, pp. 183-184)
