Like for instance, lets say that churchmen started proclaiming that everyone had a God given right to break the first commandment. Then ya got a problem. That'd never happen of course. Just a hypothetical. ;)

They already did. See Dignitatis Humanae.

Accordingly, though everyone is obliged to seek the truth, all human beings who have yet to find it nevertheless retain the right to profess their errors. Thus the document pays lip service to Catholic teaching and passes under the radar of most Catholic thinkers while at the same time promoting a novel error: You're obliged to seek the truth, but you have a right to profess your errors until such a time as you find it.

This is a violation of the 1st Commandment sanctioned by the documents of Vatican II.
