ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Government Intrusion into the Freedom of Religion

I'm not Roman Catholic and I am not sympathetic to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. However, in the United States the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment guarantees the freedom of religion and that there can be no government interference in religious matters or teaching. When the state tries to impose its politically correct views on abortion and birth control on a Catholic college the rights of every Christian church and institution is threatened. The principle of the separation of church and state works both ways, not just in the direction of preventing churches from posting the Ten Commandments on court house grounds. The state may not tax, hinder or interfere with individual churches or denominations or any of their institutions in any way. To do so is to violate the First Amendment rights of individuals and their churches.
