Bishops' statement on religious liberty applauded as break from previous public stands

August 01, 2012

In Catholic World Report, R. Michael Dunnigan writes that the US bishops' statement on religious freedom is a welcome change from many other statements issued by the American Catholic hierarchy in recent years.

The US bishops' statements on nuclear weapons, the economy, women, AIDS, and homosexuals were all marked by considerable confusion, Dunnigan argues. The statement on religious liberty, on the other hand, is clear in its argumentation and also fully in accord with the central principles of Church teaching.
