Lucia Fr Barron on Religious Liberty - most fundamental of rights

The secular attack on religion in the public sphere should concern everyone in a free society.

Some quotes from the video:

The right to worship, as one sees fit and the right to live one religious life as one sees fit is the most fundamental of rights. Why? Because it has to do with the most important relationship we could possibly have ... with God. And it reaches down to the deepest level of one's personhood. We speak of the person as inviolable. Well, what's the deepest level of the person, it's the person in relationship to God. And that's why religious liberty is absolutely fundamental. [...] Tyrants, both ancient and modern, first go after religious liberty. [...] Tyrants want dominate the mind and the soul [not just our bodies].
