It is an attempt to establish a theocracy to take charge of our politics and our legislation. It is an attempt to make the legislative power of this country subordinate to the church. It is not only to unite Church and State, but it is to put the State in subordination to the dictates of the church.
And another quote.
I expect political hardball on any legislation as important as the health care bill. I just didn’t expect it from the United States Council [sic, it’s “Conference”] of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). Who elected them to Congress?
The first quote is from enator Stephen A. Douglas (D., Ill.), on March 14, 1854 in regards to an anti-slavery petition. The second is from Rep Lynn Woolsey (D, Calif.).
