Defending Our First Freedom | First Things


Archbishop Gomez (Los Angeles) writes an excellent defense of the Church's right to preach, teach and practice according our own beliefs. Well worth the read no matter what side of the issue you stand on.

  1. Hi Tim,

    If I allow myself to be led by my more charitable angels, I think that what the Archbishop decries is really the direct result of a more pluralistic religious landscape. Secular society has no reliable way of sorting out many conflicting religious claims, and must therefore treat them all with suspicion.

    My less charitable angels would urge me to say that what the Archbishop really decries is his Church's loss of priviliege. The privileged often see the denial of their privileges as "persecution", when in fact it is nothing of the sort. How can the loss of state funding be called "persecution". A tad overwrought don't ya think? Hardly on par with being fed to the lions.

    Cheers...Martin
