Separation of Church and State does not exist in the United States Constitution. No one can find it in the United States Constitution. People have tried. The run away Judiciary has tried to find it. The communist-based ACLU has tried to find it. No one has found it yet but that doesn't stop people from saying it's there. Then again, various hallucinogenic narcotics will let you see anything. Having alcoholic withdrawals will also enable an already warped imagination to run amok as well.
Having said the above, what then do we make of the developments in the State of Connecticut? If there is in fact such a thing as Separation of Church and State, what in the world were a Democrat Party (go figure) State Senator and a State Representative trying to accomplish by replacing the leadership of the Catholic Church with elected State Officials, evidently for the "better good", whatever that is and wherever that is found in the United States Constitution. Doesn't that seem to be just a little odd? How can a Democrat justify "interfering" with a "religion" when there is a theoretical Separation of Church and State?
Let's take a look at the Constitution of the State of Connecticut:
ARTICLE FIRST. DECLARATION OF RIGHTS. That the great and essential principles of liberty and free government may be recognized and established, WE DECLARE: SEC. 3. The exercise and enjoyment of religious profession and worship, without discrimination, shall forever be free to all persons in the state; provided, that the right hereby declared and established, shall not be so construed as to excuse acts of licentiousness, or to justify practices inconsistent with the peace and safety of the state.
That right there is wide open but, what is "licentiousness"? Licentiousness: 1) promiscuous and unprincipled in sexual matters. 2) ARCHAIC: disregarding accepted rules or conventions, esp. in grammar or literary style.
Be all that as it may, I would like to point out the following; the Federal Government was not trying to do this. It was the State of Connecticut trying to do this so all of the outrage about the United States Constitution is a moot point, actually. Why, all of a sudden, are people all fired up about the United States Constitution? Where were these people when it comes to the TRILLIONS of dollars being slated to be spent unconstitutionally on unconstitutional socialist give-away programs? I do not understand why in this instance, all of a sudden people are citing the United States Constitution and not the STATE of Connecticut Constitution. Just in case they missed it, the latest escapades of the spend-thrifts in DC, for the last 50 years have done so in direct conflict with the United States Constitution.
So, to fight this attack on the Roman Catholic Church in the State of Connecticut, one MUST fight it with the proper Constitution and the US Constitution ain't it.
Having read just about everything there is to read on this subject, the one thing these Democrats failed to establish is the last part of Section 3: "...shall not be so construed as to excuse acts of licentiousness, or to justify practices inconsistent with the peace and safety of the state."
The articles mentioned a Priest that stole money but that doesn't excuse anything nor does it affect the peace and safety of the state. Then again, it all depends on how one defines peace and safety. Correct?
I am not trying to exonerate the two Democrats that attacked Catholicism and religion (Christianity) in general. It is shameful and there is no evidence that they cited their own Constitution. What I am saying is this: we have to fight the Democrats on the proper level and the correct Founding Documents. The State Politicians did not violate the Federal Constitution. End of story.
What took place in Connecticut and the reactions and responses of the People of Connecticut was proper and just and the coming protests will be sure to drive the point home and will be sure to cause the Democrats in Connecticut to be saddened that the People said, "HELL NO YOU DON'T!"
I would LOVE to see We The People do the same damn thing on a Federal Level. So, all of you folks saying the United States Constitution was violated are barking up the wrong tree. Period. It wasn't. It was the STATE Constitution which was violated.
And, this attack will become more and more frequent. This event is a litmus test. Mark my words. We have Islamic footbaths in our FEDERAL Airports and our GOVERNMENT institutions of higher learning but we cannot have a Christmas Tree or the Ten Commandments. Wake the hell up and get excited in the RIGHT direction. Stop citing Constitutions that do not apply to the situation.
