Mother of three, lawyer, religious thinker and an immensely popular former President of Ireland, Mary McAleese brings faith, a passionate intellect and love of justice to this original and challenging reflection on human rights.Among the inalienable rights of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (1948) are a series of intellectual rights, freedom of expression, conscience, thought, opinion, religion and the right to change religion.
Some see these rights as arising from ‘natural law’, as an innate element of human dignity. Some of us describe them as God-given. What does this mean for the most powerful Christian Church on earth, the Catholic Church? What does that Church have to say to its own members about their inalienable God-given human rights, especially their intellectual rights? The stark reality is that this is a debate the Church is yet to have. Its canon law provides answers which suggest strongly that the Church reserves the right to limit its members’ inalienable God-given human rights? But can it do so?”
