The citizen is obliged in conscience not to follow the directives of civil authorities when they are contrary to the demands of the moral order, to the fundamental rights of persons or the teachings of the Gospel. Refusing obedience to civil authorities, when their demands are contrary to those of an upright conscience, finds its justification in the distinction between serving God and serving the political community. "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s." "We must obey God rather than men":When citizens are under the oppression of a public authority which oversteps its competence, they should still not refuse to give or to do what is objectively demanded of them by the common good; but it is legitimate for them to defend their own rights and those of their fellow citizens against the abuse of this authority within the limits of the natural law and the law of the gospel.

According to the opposition, a faithful Catholic is a homophobe, an intolerant bigot and so forth. Faithful Catholic judges, police officers, school and college teachers, medical professionals, scientists, authors, store clerks, janitors, soldiers, government workers and artists are all painted as a threat to the emerging new social order.
Here's the thing: Catholics have been at odds with the world since the foundation of the Church by Jesus Christ. Anyone whose conscience submits to the authority of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church must be prepared to face the wrath of the minions of political correctness.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob always wins. Always!
