We have heard a great deal about Religious Freedom the past couple of years, but what does that really mean? What about The Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ? Is Christ still King or has that teaching been dropped?
At this year’s Christ the King Forum, Fr. Brian Harrison, O.S., S.T.D., will address one of the gravest doctrinal issues that has troubled and divided the Church since Vatican Council II. Many traditionalist Catholics complain that the Council’s Declaration on Religious Freedom has “dethroned” Christ the King from his rightful sovereignty over human social and political life by embodying a twofold contradiction of weighty papal documents from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Its first error, they say, is to present Church-State separation as the best constitutional arrangement for all nations, even those with predominantly Catholic populations. Secondly, they read the Declaration as teaching that non-Catholics, in every historical period and in every country on earth, have a natural right to civil freedom (i.e., immunity from government coercion) in publicly manifesting their false religious beliefs.
