Recent Synod enshrines Religious Liberty
From my post on a previous thread:

"True freedom of conscience is given to us, namely, the right to embrace and to profess the true religion according to the laws laid upon us by God or by an authority set up by God.  But absolute freedom of conscience must be rejected, that is, the right to choose a religion which is more pleasing, or the right to decide on a religion according to the sole light of the individual's reason. . . . the Roman Pontiffs do not absolutely condemn these freedoms [of conscience and of worship]; but they do forbid that these liberties be considered as rights which must be granted to error or to false religion" (Very Rev. Tanquerey, A Manual of Dogmatic Theology, vol. I, n. 280f., p. 166ff.).
