Recent Synod enshrines Religious Liberty
#33
Dignitatis Humanae goes further than teaching the authentic religious freedom to be Catholic.  Presenting B ("under current circumstances, it's expedient for all to be able to publicly practice their faith") without also presenting A ("true religious freedom is the profession of the Catholic Faith; error has no rights") will lead Catholics and others to believe in a distorted form of B ("religious freedom for error, always and everywhere").

A document on "Transmitting the Catholic Faith" should... transmit the Catholic Faith, and not leave out relevant doctrines which would put currently-accepted circumstances ("religious freedom for all") into a proper context.  The document's citation of Dignitatis Humanae does not clarify the statement, but only aids the confusion.
