Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York gives his answer in a new eBook released today. True Freedom: On Protecting Human Dignity and Religious Liberty (Image Books, 37 pages, eBook) shows how respect for human dignity--the dignity of all humans, regardless of their beliefs--undergirds the right to religious liberty. Quoting Pope Leo XIII, he begins by saying:
"True freedom... is that freedom which most truly safeguards the dignity of the human person. It is stronger than any violence or injustice. Such is the freedom which has always been desired by the Church, and which she holds most dear."
Dolan spends most of the book linking religious freedom with dignity. He uses several pages to reflect on Pope John Paul II's magnificent encyclical, The Gospel of Life: Evangelium Vitae, which holds the natural moral law and intrinsic dignity as the twin pillars of the culture of life.Read more ›
The second part, which they don't tell you is part of the deal, is an excerpt from NCR's John Allen's book "A People of Hope" a conversation between Allen and then Archbishop Dolan which was published in November, 2011. The book has very good reviews on amazon, but I found the excerpt to be a bit cloying and over the top - a sugar-coated view of Dolan. It takes about 25 minutes to read.
If you are interested in a very cogent and succinct defense of natural law and Church teaching vs. our secular, consumerist culture then you can't do better then this ebook. I'm giving four stars because I just found the Allen excerpts a bit off-putting and unnecessary.
