“Right is a moral faculty, and as We have said, and it cannot be too often repeated, it would be absurd to believe that it belongs naturally and without distinction to truth and to lies, to good and to evil.”

Yes, but the term "ability" does not denote something that should be permitted or defended by a government.  - This is the issue.  What term will denote not just the ability to do so but also that this is not an ability that the government should infringe upon?  I am not sure I can think of something other than the term right . . .

I'm not sure because I don't think that infidelity to God should be defended by a government  :sneaky:

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
