No man has a duty to profess a false religion (it is evil), therefore they have no right to do so and may be stopped (coerced) from doing so. However, the common good also requires that at times they be tolerated.

Actually, man has a moral duty and corresponding right to worship God according to the dictates of conscience -- even when honestly erroneous.  The (right) in question is not founded on "error" -- rather it is founded on the moral duty to obey conscience.  This duty is not cancelled merely by honest error -- and to disobey an honestly erroneous conscience is to SIN.  Now, man has a right to fulfill his moral duties in order to avoid sin.
