Archbishop Tomasi on Ideologies and Religious Freedom

“We need to make an extraordinary effort to convince and create a different public understanding that our differences should not lead to conflict, but should lead to more dialogue. It becomes also more and more evident that the intolerance that is increasing is not only based on conflict or violence, but it also is based on more subtle strategies like the attempt to eliminate the influence of persons with religious convictions from contributing to the common good by participating in public life. So instead of having the understanding - that is projected by some media - that religion, especially Christianity, is limiting the freedom of individuals, we should take notice that it is the other way around: That certain forms of ideology are preventing the free exercise of religion on the part of Christians, Catholics in particular."
