Were free only to the extent that we unburden ourselves of our own willfulness and practice the art of living according to Gods plan. When we do this, when we choose to live according to Gods intention for us, we are then and only then truly free.

(Without justice, what else is the State but a great band of robbers? - St. Augustine)
“freedom is not a gift of Caesar, but God”
I don’t think its possible to speak truer words...
God is indeed the origin of ALL freedoms. The State has never served to do anything take & restrict freedom. When the State restricts freedom legitimately it has the Constitutional consent of the governed and acts only to protect other freedoms from the usurpation of other actors.
In 2012 A.D. has the issue of Religion gone beyond,”debate”,”discussion,” “different points of view?” Is it possible that we have reached the point that one is either for God and Christ or one is against them? If so, what then?

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles J. Chaput reflects on the religious-liberty threats we face and urges authenticity in the fight to protect it, reminding those gathered that freedom is not a gift of Caesar, but God. Full text, as prepared, courtesy of the archdiocese of Philadelphia:
Civil liberty is also a gift from God and must be fought for. Pity the Bishops weren't quotable on that truth before this latest, most sweeping and open-ended attack on liberty became the law of the land.
