Recently, Archbishop Vigneron, the Roman Catholic bishop of the Archdiocese of Detroit, spoke at a freedom rally. This rally was in support of the Protect Religious Freedom program of the US Conference of (Roman) Catholic Bishops.
You may have seen lawn signs in front of homes in Wyandotte and elsewhere Downriver.
The aim of the PRF program is to push back against perceived attacks against religious freedom in the US.
At the rally, the Archbishop claimed that politicians are attempting to "impose their views" on people of faith throughout the US.
Gee, Archbishop, doesn't the church IMPOSE its views as well? Coercion is a primary weapon used against those Catholics who may question policies, practices, and doctrines of the church.
I don't understand how Roman Catholic clergypersons can demand religious freedom. The Roman Catholic church is among the most authoritarian and totalitarian regimes on our planet. They certainly do not allow religious freedom for their own members.
