Catholics have a tendency to accept what is powerful in the culture, according to J. Brian Benestad, professor of theology and director of the Catholic studies program at the University of Scranton.
All these cases are part of a broader secular trend, and it's up to the laity to stand up by learning their faith and convincing others that it affects their lives, Benestad said. Defending religious liberty is conduct-driven - through prayer, education and advocacy, he said.

J. Brian Benestad, professor of theology and director of the Catholic studies program at the University of Scranton, will address religious freedom and obstacles to its exercise.
Pope John Paul II, in his 1988 document titled "Christifideles Laici," on the vocation and mission of the laity, identified one of those obstacles, Benestad said. The pope said "one serious temptation that Catholics have is to separate their faith from their life," Benestad said. "What makes it worse is that you have a number of political theorists who really don't want the Church to discuss controversial issues like euthanasia and abortion, for example, in the public square. They want to confine the practice of faith to the private realm, and they don't want Catholics trying to apply their faith in the public arena." Some Catholic politicians have contributed to the problem by separating their faith life from their public service, he said. "We have the separation of church and state, but we don't have the separation of church and society," Benestad said.

James Brian Benestad, professor of theology at The University of Scranton, has studied the writings of Pope Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger.
He said the pope's decision was an "act of civility." "He knew he couldn't perform the same as he used to and realized he wasn't healthy enough to do the job," Benestad said. "I think people will respect him for doing it." He said he also "trusts his judgement," and that the pope is an "extraordinary person. Benestad met Pope Benedict before he became a pope and got to walk with him for a little bit. "I've always admired him," Benestad stated. "I've used his works in my class. Meeting him was a very great thing for me. He did wonderful things as pope." Among those, Benestad said, was turning out three books since becoming pope. Benestad also said Pope Benedict is a "great promoter" of the Catholic universities and communities, helped "motivate people back to their faith," and a "great defender" of faith and religious liberty.
