Religious liberty is a fundamental right if there ever was one in any country or society. The hallmark of just about every single totalitarian state that there ever was or will be is a lack or attack on religious liberty. All one has to do is look at the countries throughout the 20th century alone that banned religious liberty and the untold loss of human life due to an attack or suspension of religious liberty that took place and still is taking place in various parts of the world today. If God himself gives us free will to choose right from wrong or good from evil, surely the hallmark of any great country or society is to give its citizens religious liberty to follow and practice the religion of their choice under full protection by the state to do so. My prayers with Pope Benedict XVI. «Deus Caritas Est.» God Is Love.
