Bishop Sanborn responds to the "rupture theology" article

The essense of DH and (true) religious freedom was already noted by the Popes:

Quote:“...that every man in the State may follow the will of God and, from a consciousness of duty and free from every obstacle, obey His commands. This, indeed, is true liberty, a liberty worthy of the sons of God, which nobly maintains the dignity of man and is stronger than all violence or wrong -- a liberty which the Church has always desired and held most dear. This is the kind of liberty the Apostles claimed for themselves…” (Leo XIII, Libertas)

Quote:The believer has an absolute right to profess his faith and live according to its dictates. Laws which impede this profession and practice of faith are against the natural law. (Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, 1937)

Quote:Promote the respect of the fundamental rights of the human person - that is, the right to maintain and develop corporal, intellectual, and moral life, specifically the right to religious formation and education; the right to worship God in public and in private, including charitable religious action. (Pius XII, Radio Message of December 24, 1942)
