Catholic U. president bolsters bishops' argument on religious freedom
December 15, 2011
Defending with the US bishops' statements on religious liberty, John Garvey, the president of Catholic University of America, explains that the US Constitution was framed by men who strongly believed in a system of law that protects minority viewpoints from the potential tyranny of the majority. The Church, he writes, is not arguing for special privileges, but for the right to be free from constraints.
(There was a time, not too long ago, when orthodox Catholics in America associated Catholic University with theological dissent rather than support for Church teachings. Garvey has helped change some lasting impressions.)
