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.
