In current climate, religious tolerance is being redefined
As Catholics look ahead to the 50th anniversary of the documents of Vatican II on religious liberty and on the ecumenical and interreligious relationships of the Catholic Church, there has been certainly no better time than the recent Fortnight for Freedom for the church in the U.S. to enter into the dialogue about religious liberty.
The current danger is the possibility that we confuse the right of religious liberty with the principle of religious toleration.
By keeping this clear distinction in our minds and hearts, people of various religious traditions and of no religious faith at all can co-exist in a multifaith society marked by religious liberty and religious toleration for each.
