Freedom of religion ought to coincide with freedom from it

REGARDING Your article“Bishopsadopt a mandate” (Metro, Nov. 13), concerning the efforts of the Archdiocese of Boston to defeat ballot Question 2: I’m 83, and in only fair health, which will continue to decline seriously because of several conditions.

Just as I don’t want our government in my bedroom, I don’t want the dictates of someone else’s church in my sickroom.

Our Constitution declares freedom of religion for all, without governmental interference. Roman Catholics have a right to believe, express, and follow the teachings of their bishops, but I want to be free from the dictates of Cardinal Sean P. O’Malley's religion. He is not my cardinal.

George W. Casper
