Benedict XVI on Religious Freedom and Evaluating Religions
June 29, 2009
Religious freedom does not mean religious indifferentism, nor does it imply that all religions are equal. Discernment is needed regarding the contribution of cultures and religions, especially on the part of those who wield political power, if the social community is to be built up in a spirit of respect for the common good. [...] "The whole man and all men" is also the criterion for evaluating cultures and religions.
