Each one of us has an inner compass — the voice of our conscience guided by intrinsic values. Decades ago, somehow, most societies had clear concepts about the core values that would influence the consciences of individual members. But in today’s diverse societies, this is no longer a given. Some religious values are no longer accepted by a majority, and therefore cannot be forced upon others. However, how can a believer stay faithful? What to do when your conscience does not allow you to follow newly established laws? There are at least two options: create your own separate niche where you can live out your faith, or live the struggle to bring your values into public life by entering into dialogue with those who might think differently.
