But the moral theology of your Church is so dreadfully intolerant. If I follow apathetically the laws of that Church I might as well never have been endowed with freewill.

The Catholic Answers

Catholics follow the laws of their Church not apathetically, but willingly. They know that her legislation rejoices in the authority of Christ. You might just as well say, “If I have to follow the ten commandments apathetically, I might as well have been born without freewill.” You are mixing up physical freedom with moral freedom. Man is physically free to do good or evil, but he is not morally free to do evil. And as morally we are not free to disobey God’s commandments, so we are not morally free to disobey the Church Christ commissioned to teach in His name.
