And my sister, raised in the same Catholic family as I was, actually posted on Facebook that "And I thought that separation of church and state means that the church stays out of the business of the state."

She went to the same schools I went to and yet somehow she never learned that the First Amendment clearly, CLEARLY, states that Congress shall make no laws, NO LAWS, concerning the establishment of a religion or the free exercise there of. Nowhere does it say the church must not inform representatives of its concerned.

On a much smaller scale, we have a county that for historical reasons, provides bus services to Parochial schools. Catholic, Lutheran, and Baptist.They wanted to withdraw that service in spite of a law that says it would be provided "In perpetuity." That means forever. So we called for a Catholic School strike. All parents were asked to take their children down to their local school on the first day of school and register for classes. They schools board got wind of it and backed down. Because of the Catholic schools (and Lutherans and Baptist schools) all shut down all at once, there would be no room in the county schools.

Same thin if our hospitals and other services shut down, the gummint is ill-prepared to take on what the Church does.

Thank you for sharing. I know this is an extremely volatile issue for most Catholics. I will admit that I am challenged by this and cannot fully agree though I do understand. So I am grateful for more discussion and explanation on both sides of the story. I know the more I pray and learn the more I will come to know God's will on this.

I fear that there are many generalizations and finger pointing on both sides that are keeping us from being united in God (love) and the country. I continue praying for love, that we see all of it, care for all of it and are able to live out our Catholic lives as we wish.
