Liberal democrats just love to bring up the non-existent separation of Church and State clause of our constitution, and then of course when it suits their own interest they completely ignore it. Such is the case in the State of Connecticut, where a bill has been introduced that would in effect be a radical restructuring of the operating structure of the Catholic Church in Connecticut — by the state government.
Of course this bill was introduced by Democrats, specifically Connecticut State Senator Andrew McDonald, and state Representative Michael Lawlor, who are the chairs of the state Legislature’s Judiciary Committee.
If passed and made into state law, the bill would strip the Catholic dioceses of Connecticut of all financial control of their parishes.
So much for that so-called Separation of Church and State that liberals are always yapping about.
The Democrats in Connecticut have become so drunk with power that now they think that they have the right to force State control over private religious institutions. Or in the case of this particular bill, just the Catholic Church, for now.
Let me quote a portion of Article Seventh of the Connecticut State Constitution:
“No preference shall be given by law to any religious society or denomination in the state. Each shall have and enjoy the same and equal powers, rights and privileges…”
By singling out the Catholic Church, this bill if it were to become law would in essence give preferential treatment to other religious denominations by nor forcing them to succumb to State control.
That’s just the State Constitution, lets not forget the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution which is completely trampled on simply by the mere introduction of this bill.
There was a time that I would have said that a bill like this would have no chance of ever getting a second look in a any Legislative body of our country’s government, yet alone even come close to being passed and becoming law.
But these are strange times our country is living through right now, we have just elected and inaugurated a Marxist as President, anything is possible and that scares the crap out of me. How long will it be before they start seizing and controlling Religious hospitals for nor providing “family planning” and abortions?
Where will this lunacy stop?
