The Catholic Church in the United States is currently engaged in a prayer and education campaign called the Fortnight for Freedom, focused on curtailing threats to religious freedom, both at home and abroad. This isn't about religious people trying to force their beliefs on others. It's about the government trying to force its beliefs on religious people. "America is at its best when religion has a place at the table," Cardinal Timothy Dolan said. And he's right. Faith is a good thing, a very good thing. And its expression enriches public life. It inspires people to serve their neighbors, and it brings people together. Regardless of our personal beliefs, we should all be able to agree that the government must not use its coercive power to force Americans to act in violation of their beliefs to make a living or to serve their communities. To do so is unlawful, unjust and un-American.
